Net Zero Including Food

 Engaged In Reality,

  Colin Todhunter, Net Zero, the Digital Panopticon and the Future of Food
​  The food transition, the energy transition, net-zero ideology, programmable central bank digital currencies, the censorship of free speech and clampdowns on protest. What’s it all about? To understand these processes, we need to first locate what is essentially a social and economic reset within the context of a collapsing financial system.​..
​..Professor Fabio Vighi of Cardiff University has described how closing down the global economy in early 2020 under the guise of fighting a supposedly new and novel pathogen allowed the US Federal Reserve to flood collapsing financial markets (COVID relief) with freshly printed money without causing hyperinflation. Lockdowns curtailed economic activity, thereby removing demand for the newly printed money (credit) in the physical economy and preventing ‘contagion’.
​  According to investigative journalist Michael Byrant, €1.5 trillion was needed to deal with the crisis in Europe alone. The financial collapse staring European central bankers in the face came to a head in 2019. The appearance of a ‘novel virus’ provided a convenient cover story.​..
..In response to a collapsing neoliberalism, we are now seeing the rollout of an authoritarian great reset — an agenda that intends to reshape the economy and change how we live.
​  The new economy is to be dominated by a handful of tech giants, global conglomerates and e-commerce platforms, and new markets will also be created through the financialisation of nature, which is to be colonised, commodified and traded under the notion of protecting the environment.​..
​..This great reset envisages a transformation of Western societies, resulting in permanent restrictions on fundamental liberties and mass surveillance. Being rolled out under the benign term of a ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’, the World Economic Forum (WEF) says the public will eventually ‘rent’ everything they require (remember the WEF video ‘you will own nothing and be happy’?): stripping the right of ownership under the guise of a ‘green economy’ and underpinned by the rhetoric of ‘sustainable consumption’ and ‘climate emergency’.
​  Climate alarmism and the mantra of sustainability are about promoting money-making schemes. But they also serve another purpose: social control.​..
..To push back against any dissent, ordinary people are being told that they must sacrifice personal liberty in order to protect public health, societal security (those terrible Russians, Islamic extremists or that Sunak-designated bogeyman George Galloway) or the climate...
​..The real reason for this ideological shift is to ensure that the masses get used to lower living standards and accept them... Rob Kapito of the world’s biggest asset management firm BlackRock, who says that a “very entitled” generation must deal with scarcity for the first time in their lives.​..
..NET-ZERO AGENDA​  [We are burning too much of their jet-fuel,]
But what of this shift towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and the plan to slash our carbon footprints? Is it even feasible or necessary?​ ...
​..But this agenda will also cause serious environmental degradation. So says Andrew Nikiforuk in the article The Rising Chorus of Renewable Energy Skeptics, which outlines how the green techno-dream is vastly destructive.
​  He lists the devastating environmental impacts of an even more mineral-intensive system based on renewables and warns:
“The whole process of replacing a declining system with a more complex mining-based enterprise is now supposed to take place with a fragile banking system, dysfunctional democracies, broken supply chains, critical mineral shortages and hostile geopolitics.”​ ...
..In the article Global warming and the confrontation between the West and the rest of the world, journalist Thierry Meyssan argues that net zero is based on political ideology rather than science...
​..It seems anyone and everyone in business is planting their corporate flag on the summit of sustainability. Take Sainsbury’s, for instance. It is one of the ‘big six’ food retail supermarkets in the UK and has a vision for the future of food that it published in 2019.
​  Here’s a quote from it:
​  “Personalised Optimisation is a trend that could see people chipped and connected like never before. A significant step on from wearable tech used today, the advent of personal microchips and neural laces has the potential to see all of our genetic, health and situational data recorded, stored and analysed by algorithms which could work out exactly what we need to support us at a particular time in our life. Retailers, such as Sainsbury’s could play a critical role to support this, arranging delivery of the needed food within thirty minutes — perhaps by drone.”
​  Tracked, traced and chipped — for your own benefit. Corporations accessing all of our personal data, right down to our DNA. The report is littered with references to sustainability and the climate or environment...
​..However, the promotion of a brave new world of technological innovation that has nothing to say about power — who determines policies that have led to massive inequalities, poverty, malnutrition, food insecurity and hunger and who is responsible for the degradation of the environment in the first place — is nothing new.
​  The essence of power is conveniently glossed over, not least because those behind the prevailing food regime are also shaping the techno-utopian fairytale where everyone lives happily ever after eating bugs and synthetic food while living in a digital panopticon.​..
​..It is, furthermore, a type of green that plans to cover much of the countryside with wind farms and solar panels with most farmers no longer farming. A recipe for food insecurity.
​  Those investing in the ‘green’ agenda care first and foremost about profit. The supremely influential BlackRock invests in the current food system that is responsible for polluted waterways, degraded soils, the displacement of smallholder farmers, a spiralling public health crisis, malnutrition and much more.​ It also invests in healthcare — an industry that thrives on the illnesses and conditions created by eating the substandard food that the current system produces. Did Larry Fink, the top man at BlackRock, suddenly develop a conscience and become an environmentalist who cares about the planet and ordinary people?​ ...
​..The aforementioned article by Andrew Nikiforuk concludes that, if we are really serious about our impacts on the environment, we must scale back our needs and simplify society.​ In terms of food, the solution rests on a low-input approach that strengthens rural communities and local markets and prioritises smallholder farms and small independent enterprises and retailers, localised democratic food systems and a concept of food sovereignty based on self-sufficiency, agroecological principles and regenerative agriculture.[Not zero fertilizer, but much less, and targeted fertilization, with composting and crop rotation. Wholesome food is "expensive".]
​  It would involve facilitating the right to culturally appropriate food that is nutritionally dense due to diverse cropping patterns and free from toxic chemicals while ensuring local ownership and stewardship of common resources like land, water, soil and seeds.​ That’s where genuine environmentalism and the future of food begins.

​  ‘Your vampire ball is over’ – Putin to Western elites​   [He's just speaking figuratively about cannibalism, ​right?]
​  The president stated that over the past few centuries, the so-called “golden billion” has grown accustomed to being able to “fill their bellies with human flesh and their pockets with money” as they have been “parasitizing” other peoples in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
​  ”But they must understand that the vampire ball is ending,” Putin said.
​  He added that the citizens of the aforementioned regions, which have been continuously exploited by the West over the past 500 years, have started to associate Russia’s struggle for sovereignty with “their own aspirations for sovereignty and independent development.”
​  At the same time, Putin noted that Western elites have a very strong desire to “freeze the current situation” and preserve the “unjust state of affairs in international affairs.”

​  Mike Mihajlovic presents this new development in peer-warfare, though similar US guided-glide-bombs are also devastating Gaza. 
  Heavy bombs can be fitted with cheap, strap-on glide wings and targeting packages to move bombers 50-70 kilometers back from the battlefield, out of reach of most anti-aircraft systems. 
  Air defense radar can find and target these glide-bombs, but it has to be moved to the frontlines, where it is immediately spotted and targeted by anti-radar missiles, like the Russian Lancet. As a result, Ukrainian forces were rapidly devastated in the final assault on Avdeevka, and their Patriot and S-300 missile-batteries, now moved closer to the front lines, are being wiped out quickly in recent weeks.

​  More than a third of young French voters are planning to back anti-immigration, nationalist parties in June’s EU elections
​  According to an Ipsos survey published on Tuesday, 31 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds in France are lending their vote to Jordan Bardella’s National Rally (RN) — the anti-immigration party still heavily influenced by nationalist firebrand and former presidential candidate Marine Le Pen...
..On the RN’s candidate list for the June election is Fabrice Leggeri, the former director-general of the EU’s border agency Frontex, who recently blew the whistle on the European Commission’s commitment to mass immigration in an exclusive interview with Remix News.
​  “Migrants come out of love, and your job is to welcome them. Europe is an aging continent, and whether you like it or not, you have to welcome them,” Leggeri claimed he was told by European Commissioner for Home Affairs Ylva Johansson during his tenure at Frontex
​  “I chose Marine Le Pen’s National Rally to enter politics because I want to be in opposition to Ursula von der Leyen’s Commission, which was installed by President Macron. I am resolutely in the opposition to von der Leyen and Macron,” he told this site.

​  The Global North And South’s Fight For LNG Energy Security Is Set To Intensify
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, LNG has become the swing emergency energy supply for many of the developed countries that comprise the Global North.
European LNG imports are still at similar levels to those throughout 2022 and 2023.
The already intense geopolitical struggle to secure these supplies will become even more of a dangerous zero-sum game between the Global North and the Global South.

​  Gilbert Doctorow, MI6 strikes again:  Navalny’s aide Volkov beaten up in Lithuania
  [I sent Doctorow an email on 2/28/24, alerting him to a report that Navalny had at least 3 COVID vaccines, which predispose to fatal blood clots. When I saw this I sent a reply to that original email, gloating. He doesn't reply, but he does appear to have read at least two of my emails.]
​  One of the more piquant issues that Mikhalkov raised in this show is what exactly was the cause of Navalny’s death.  He does not question the coroner’s report that it was due to a detached blood clot (thrombosis)[Probably to the heart and then the lungs, a "pulmonary embolism"] He reminds us that this very finding was supported to reporters by the head of Ukrainian intelligence Budanov, who had no interest in exculpating the Kremlin for Navalny’s death.  And why the loosened blood clot? For this, Mikhalkov turns to official British findings on mortality from blood clots of those who received the anti-Covid vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna during the height of the pandemic. The statistics speak clearly of a vastly increased risk of death for those who were vaccinated.  And, per Mikhalkov, Navalny was vaccinated with the Pfizer shots not once, not twice but as many as five times during his stay of several months in Germany when he was recuperating from a (phony) Novichok poisoning. Mikhalkov concludes that Navalny was killed by Pfizer...
..I am just a layman as regards military hardware, but I will stick my neck out a bit to mention one aspect of the controversy in Germany over sending Taurus cruise missiles to Ukraine that barely is mentioned in our media. We hear time and again that the issue is the range of these missiles, 500 km, which would give the Ukrainians the possibility of destroying the iconic Kerch (Crimea) bridge and attacking other targets way behind Russian lines with devastating effect.  That, presumably, would lead to a further escalation from the Russian side, exposing German military production centers to attack.
​  However, at least in Russian media there is another issue: the Taurus are said to be nuclear enabled, meaning they could carry tactical nuclear weapons.  If that is true, then incoming Taurus missiles could well prompt the Russians to ‘launch on warning’ a strategic nuclear attack on Germany, or on the USA as they may choose.
​  There are rumors in Germany that Scholz’s decision against sending the Taurus to Ukraine was advised by none other than Joe Biden.

Boeing Failed 37% of Audits by US Regulators, Report Reveals

​  Steve Kirsch., on American medicine blaming the victims again, simultaneously excluding the parents of vaccine injured babies from the courts with the "child abuse" moniker:
The new rise of "shaken baby syndrome"
​  I'm getting reports of parents who had their child vaccinated subsequently being accused of "shaken baby syndrome" and had their child taken from them. Their crime? Following their doctors' advice.

​  Parents who follow their physician’s advice to vaccinate their kids can find that their child subsequently develops encephalitis soon after vaccination (more likely when multiple vaccines are given at once and even more likely if the child has an infection at the time of vaccination) which then becomes a permanent brain injury.
​  Their doctor then reports the parents to Child Protective Services for “shaken baby syndrome” and their child is taken away.
Physicians are never to blame of course, because vaccines are safe and effective.

  ​Peter McCullough MD,  COVID-19 Vaccination Refusal: An Inquiry of Vaccine Mandate Positions in Healthcare  -  Mandates Created Medical Apartheid
​  This paper caught my attention on the issue of COVID-19 vaccination in healthcare workers. Chaufan and Hemsing used a “What is the problem” framework to search the literature on this issue and understand the “dominant representations” of healthcare institutions​...
​..“We conclude by noting that an apartheid-like system has been imposed on “HCWs for simply demanding the free exercise of their human right to informed consent, enshrined across classic documents (Shuster, 1997; UNESCO, 2005; World Medical Association, 1964). Informed consent includes the right to be fully and honestly informed about the risks and benefits of, and alternatives to, any medical intervention, to be offered the alternative to do nothing, and to be able to choose free from coercion. We have also argued that mandated vaccination for HCWs, or any other social group for that matter, is at odds with the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusivity, held normatively in high esteem by the same institutions that appear to be participating in subverting them in practice (CDC, 2023; Health Canada, 2017; NHS Leadership Academy, 2024; WHO, 2023a).
