The world has definitely come a long way. Farming was oftentimes thought to just happen on fertile grounds where the soil was full of nutrients. While this may be true, technology has also come a long, long way.
No longer are gardens limited to open grasslands that lie on fertile soil. In fact, innovative planters are testing out their green thumbs elsewhere. In fact, imagine this – a garden found underwater! That’s one impressive feat that researchers have achieved.

(NaturalHealth365) Global soils are the source of all life on land. They produce food, store carbon, and purify water. If topsoil is lost through “bad treatment,” it takes thousands of years until the soil is produced again. Pesticides and chemical poisons qualify as “bad treatment,” and without urgent action to halt the degradation caused by pesticides, pollution, and intensive farming, the future of global soils is bleak.
The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting at the end of January in Davos, Switzerland, brings together international business and political leaders, economists and other high-profile individuals to discuss global issues.
Driven by the vision of its influential CEO Klaus Schwab, the WEF is the main driving force for the dystopian ‘great reset’, a tectonic shift that intends to change how we live, work and interact with each other.

Philanthrocapitalism — epitomized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation — has emerged over the last 30 years as a major force with the potential to “push the future of our planet towards extinction and ecological collapse,” according to a report launched Wednesday by Navdanya International.

(NaturalHealth365) The destructive policies of the “modern” food system are vast and varied, leading to a host of societal and planetary ills. Big agriculture and pervasive corporate greed; worker wage depression and unhealthy working conditions; consumer exposure to toxins and antibiotics; chronic disease; animal cruelty; and the mass extinction of biodiversity are just the beginning.
More than 800 million people in the world are hungry, 2 billion people are suffering from micronutrient deficiencies, and 2 billion are overweight or obese. It’s abundantly clear: something has got to give!

For years now Activist Post has been warning about the rise of robotic technology and artificial intelligence. Now, the technology is being used for police robot dogs and for herding sheep. That means that robots are even coming for our K9 friends’ jobs. Aye caramba!

(NaturalHealth365) Destructive, inefficient, wasteful, cruel… there are as many adjective to describe modern industrial farming as there are “dead zones” where pollutants from farms create toxic algae blooms that kill off marine life. But beyond polluting water and air, degrading soils and forests, killing biodiversity and hastening climate change, degenerative “modern” food and farming systems pose a mortal threat, contributing to all forms of malnutrition. →

(Collective-Evolution) We constantly hear the banter that organic agriculture is simply not sustainable. This is not true, and that’s been made clear by a plethora of literature that’s available on the topic. What is true is that big agrochemical giants, like Monsanto (Bayer) for example, would lose billions of dollars a year if herbicides were no longer considered sustainable, or healthy. This is why these corporate entities spend so much of their revenue marketing the idea that herbicides are necessary, that it’s impossible to grow our food because of pest infestation, and that organic agriculture simply isn’t possible on a large scale, nor economically sustainable. This isn’t true either. →
