[NAFEX] Deadly Pathogen Could Destroy Florida Citrus Industry

I didn't know anything about Greening except that it was supposed to be extremely bad, and that's why I got APHIS involved in a case of citrus seeds being brought in from China and the seedlings being sold to unsuspecting nurserymen.  APHIS handled it so badly that I really don't want to bring them down on anyone ever again.  
    When I was in Florida a year or so ago, someone said they had Greening there now and acted like it was no big deal.  But apparently it is a very big deal.  The canker was bad enough....  I wonder if there are some natural controls that aren't being researched.  I talked with someone who makes weird radionic remedies, and they said they could make them for rose rosette virus, no problem.  Maybe some Nafexers should be playing around with such remedies to see if they can really work.  I'll give you an example.  
    Have you heard of the "Cosmic Pipe"?  ACRES USA has had a number of articles on the subject.  Well, I read elsewhere that a banana plantation in SE Asia was having a lot of trouble with elephants, which could destroy an acre of plants in a night.  They got so desperate they sent off for a big Cosmic Pipe, which is supposed to "treat" up to 500 acres, but they couldn't find anything to put in it that had any effect.  Finally they went to the zoo and got some tiger hair and tiger dung.  The first night they had it in the gadget, the elephants didn't feed, rather they trumpeted all night.  The second night they moved away and didn't come back.  Worth thinking about maybe.    Donna
