“:

Birds and bees are something most of us take for granted as part of nature.
The expression “teaching about the birds and the bees” to explain the
process of human reproduction to young people is not an accidental
expression. Bees and birds contribute to the essence of life on our planet.
A study by the US Department of Agriculture estimated that “…perhaps
one-third of our total diet is dependent, directly or indirectly, upon
insect-pollinated plants.”[1]

The honey bee, Apis mellifera, is the most important pollinator of
agricultural crops. Honey bees pollinate over 70 out of 100 crops that in
turn provide 90% of the world’s food. They pollinate most fruits and
vegetables — including apples, oranges, strawberries, onions and
carrots.[2] But while managed honey bee populations have increased over the
last 50 years, bee colony populations have decreased significantly in many
European and North American nations. Simultaneously, crops that are
dependent on insects for pollination have increased. The phenomenon has
received the curious designation of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD),
implying it could be caused by any number of factors. Serious recent
scientific studies however point to a major cause: use of new highly toxic
systemic pesticides in agriculture since about 2004.

If governments in the EU, USA and other countries fail to impose a total
ban on certain chemical insecticides, not only could bees become a thing of
the past. The human species could face staggering new challenges merely to
survive. The immediate threat comes from the widespread proliferation of
commercial insecticides containing the highly-toxic chemical with the
improbable name, neonicotinoids. Neonicotinoids are a group of insecticides
chemically similar to nicotine. They act on the central nervous system of
insects. But also on bees and small song birds. Recent evidence suggests
they could also affect human brain development in newborn.

Some five to six years back, reports began to circulate from around the
world, especially out of the United States, and then increasingly from
around the EU, especially in the UK, that entire bee colonies were
disappearing. Since 2004 over a million beehives have died across the
United States and beekeepers in 25 states report what is called Colony
Collapse Disorder. In winter of 2009 an estimated one fifth of bee hives in
the UK were lost, double the natural rate.[3] Government authorities
claimed it was a mystery. *Continue reading “Death of the Birds and the

Today more than ever, the world’s food resources are being hijacked by
giant corporations that are turning farms into factories and replacing
natural resources with genetically modified “food-like” substances.

This skilfully researched book focuses on how a small socio-political
American elite seeks to establish control over the very basis of human
survival: the provision of our daily bread. “Control the food and you
control the people.”

This is no ordinary book about the perils of GMO. Engdahl takes the reader
inside the corridors of power, into the backrooms of the science labs,
behind closed doors in the corporate boardrooms.

The author cogently reveals a diabolical world of profit-driven political
intrigue, government corruption and coercion, where genetic manipulation
and the patenting of life forms are used to gain worldwide control over
food production. If the book often reads as a crime story, that should come
as no surprise. For that is what it is.

Engdahl’s carefully argued critique goes far beyond the familiar
controversies surrounding the practice of genetic modification as a
scientific technique. The book is an eye-opener, a must-read for all those
committed to the causes of social justice and world peace.
