Rangitikei farmers’ ‘spray and pray’ activity is grossly polluting the waterways

Kiwis love herbicides and poisons, particularly Kiwi farmers. They spray roundup over their pastures because the text books recommend it and they believe it’s safe. They won’t read the independent research either. Not in my experience. Still that’s what we’re up against. The corporations particularly Monsanto in this instance, have control of the media so they control the public perception. Their methods aren’t working & they’re not sustainable witness the filthy state of our waterways now. Can’t even swim in them any more. A total shame & total hypocrisy to be calling our country clean and green. See our Glyphosate pages.

From Radio NZ

An intensive farming practice taking off in the Rangitikei, known locally as spray and pray, is an environmental disaster waiting to happen, according to Fish and Game.

The method involves aerially spraying steep hill country with herbicide, then sowing a winter crop and aerially spraying with fertiliser.

Stock are then fed in mobs on the crop during winter, which strips it back to bare land.

It has locals, including farmers, worried about what it is doing to waterways, particularly the protected Rangitikei River, which is one of 15 rivers in the country with a water conservation order on it.

Fish and Game chief executive Bryce Johnson said he first heard about the practice from a fishing guide in Rangitikei, who was noticing the river was clouding with sediment on fine days and becoming increasingly discoloured.

In the U.S. … Military Planes Caught Dumping Mysterious Fibers … Similar Also Seen in Marton

18 Dec 2014  Here we have two women in the U.S. who reported today the sightings of long fibers falling from the sky. Their sightings are identical to fibers I saw on 1 May 2014 in Marton. (Video to come of that).

Published on Dec 17, 2014

Marie Snow and her friend Cori Gunnels knew they stumbled across something sinister when they saw what appeared to be 50 to 60-foot long “raindrops”, “solid” in nature, falling from the sky in clusters, after three military aircraft flew overhead.

Marton is in the lower, North Island of New Zealand. Recently there have been reported sightings of fibres falling in other parts of the country as well (Golden Bay & Taupo come to mind). This should be viewed in light of decades of covert geoengineering, and well documented COVERT biological & chemical warfare. The HR2977 document describes geoengineering trails (US Congress calls them ‘chemtrails’) as exotic weapons.

I first saw these on 1 May 2014 and thereafter on the next day, again on the 11th and have seen them regularly ever since, particularly on clear days. This may be because the sun then reflects on them in which case they could be there every day. Whilst observing them I saw two what looked like military aircraft fly over within minutes of each other. Later in the day there was heavy geoengineering over town and a further aircraft sighting which was a Hercules. It’s not uncommon to see military aircraft here as there is a Defense Base nearby. Go to envirowatchrangitikei.wordpress.com for further info on geoengineering in the Rangitikei. I’ve observed this activity for 2 and a half years now, both here and in Palmerston North. People observe them daily throughout NZ, including fibers or filaments. I have collected samples however laboratory testing is very expensive so cost prohibitive.

Geoengineering trails observed over Bulls, Marton area in the Rangitikei District NZ – evidence of ongoing weather modification


In May last year (2015) a local person (thank you!) sent me images they’d captured over the Bulls area of skies that were clearly geoengineered. I believe the above video that I captured over Marton in May also is of the same spraying event. To educate yourself on geoengineering or climate modification please visit our Geoengineering page. Listen to the testimonies of whistleblowers, watch the documentaries and read the data by people who have studied this practice that has continued now for several decades right around the planet. For a well referenced documentation of its development go to climateviewer.com‘s timeline. There are further videos recording these trails over the Rangitikei on the NZ Geoengineering page. See also how our air, water and soils are polluted and poisoned by this practice. Although now acknowledged by governments as a scientific practice that ‘may combate global warming’ (they say) – that geoengineering is happening now is currently flatly denied by governments of the world. Below is a list of the contents of independently tested trails in California. New Zealanders are finding high concentrations of Aluminum, Barium and Strontium in their rainwater.

Contents of the trails

Marton Residents Report Wind from the Bonny Glen Landfill Direction 6-7 km Away Smells ‘Obnoxious … like sewage’

I was contacted this week by residents who live in town reporting a foul, sewage-like smell blowing from the direction of the Bonny Glen landfill situated some  6-7 km away. This is in addition to the smell of passing trucks which, as previously reported, drop bits of refuse on the roads. Two of those people who gave feedback on the truck situation had this to say:

  • truck numbers are static but there are bigger and heavier truck and trailer units
  •  3 went past within 5 minutes this morning at 7.10am, empty, and making a really loud crash sound as they hit the bumps and manhole covers outside our house, shaking the house
  • The tankers taking leachate to the wastewater treatment start about 7-7.30am and continue until approx. 4pm, making about 7-8 round trips per day (also report 12 pday). However since this report of last year, these days the leachate tanker is seldom seen (so have they changed routes?)
  • How that is affecting the plant is unknown, but I understand that RDC are to spend upwards of $1million to upgrade to cope with this leachate, a good example of the ratepayers subsidising a corporation? (Yes indeed)
  • Doors and windows are warped and sticking due it’s believed, to the continual earthquake-like house shaking that goes on with the passing trucks
truck-333251_1280
Some Marton residents hear up to 3 trucks in the space of 5 minutes drive past, shaking their homes like an earthquake

Comment:

Is the leachate tanker now taking a different route given it’s not seen any more? At late last year’s reporting by community members the leachate tanker count was 12 sometimes 13 trips on average per day. This is a considerably higher than the mere 2 to 3 figure bandied around last year and signals cause for concern at the volume being dumped in the WWTP, given the plant was not coping with 2-3 loads.

P1160034
Leachate is dumped into Marton’s WWTP in unknown quantities under a ‘gentleman’s agreement’, regularly exceeding consent levels

Readers may recall the submission made to the consent hearings last year (2015) by a (then) local man, Hamish Allan, on the issue of leachate and the Tutaenui Stream’s pollution. At the time he was a member of the Marton Community Committee (MCC – a conduit for action between the public and Council) and he said that:

“…a member of the public came to us because they were concerned about ‘Enviro Waste’ trucks disposing of industrial waste from Bonny Glen down a manhole in ‘the junction’. “

Mr Allan outlines the difficult process he experienced in getting any action on this issue. He said that: “…by bringing up the issue of the leachate in our recommendations we were genuinely endeavouring to be an effective liason with the community so…

What could be a relatively simple & democratic process – providing straight-forward answers to straight-forward questions – became an opportunity for Council to tell us off about small-scale procedural matters, with only one councillor voting against the motion, to her eternal credit.

What’s more, the minutes of the Community Committee meeting in February 2012 detail Council’s deliberate attempt at avoiding any direct response to the issue of the leachate…”

… they simply refused to accept the recommendation of the MCC! You can read the submission yourself here. You will find there also,  full details of the ongoing and shocking non compliance issue regarding the pollution of the Tutaenui Stream.

In conclusion, the MCC appears to be giving merely the illusion of a democratic process.

Clearly from Mr Allan’s report of 2011 and 12 events, that avenue for addressing pertinent issues didn’t work. I attended one of the MCC meetings last year to ask when an in-stream biota survey would be conducted to assess the aquatic life of the stream. They should be made three yearly according to the consent, however in Mr Allan’s submission he points out that there hadn’t been one since 2002. At the meeting I attended the Mayor Andy Watson was present and spoke to my question. There was no date given for a survey nor any indication there would even be one. In answer to my query, what action should I take as a member of the public or words to that effect, I was advised to email the Council (ie the Mayor and Councilors). I did that subsequently and have heard NOTHING since.

Clearly also, the democratic processes within your democratically elected council are not working in favour of you the public who incidentally are funding the whole machine with your rates.  Whom it does appear to be working for are the Bonny Glen Landfill owners, Midwest Disposals.

Nestle Pays Only $524 to Extract 27,000,000 Gallons of California Drinking Water – from Antimedia

More revelations on Nestle from Claire Bernish at ANTIMEDIA, August 20, 2015

Firstly, 

Some thoughts on our own supplies of water in NZ:

P1160151
Lake Horowhenua

Many Kiwis will be aware of similar water issues here, particularly the Hawkes Bay where water rights have been sold to a Chinese company at bargain rates, giving them the right to extract, bottle and sell, whilst local orchardists pay through the nose for water to irrigate their orchards. Watch for a post on this issue. Water rights is an issue of growing importance, something we were all warned about by Maude Barlow in her book ‘Blue Gold’. These supplies, particularly aquifers, are indeed gold now as the rivers world wide are becoming increasingly polluted to the extent they are unsafe to drink or often even to swim in, as in the case of Lake Horowhenua. Continually the environment is being compromised in favour of corporate profits, and our authorities are letting them away with it. This reeks of corruption in the light of our so called ‘sustainable’ councils which speak

Bonny Glen Landfill
Midwest Disposal’s Landfill

with forked tongues. Not only are they allowing foreign companies to pillage precious supplies at ‘mates rates’, they also turn a blind eye to industry’s ongoing and blatant pollution of our precious waterways. This is evident in Rangitikei’s ongoing issue and lack of accountability with regard to the dumping of leachate into our water systems by local landfill owners, Midwest Disposals. Watch this space.

Now More on California & Nestle’s Super Cheap Water Rights

“In 2013, the company drew 27 million gallons of water from 12 springs in Strawberry Canyon for the brand — apparently by employing rather impressive legerdemain —considering the permit to do soexpired in 1988.

But, as Nestle will tell you, that really isn’t cause for concern since it swears it is a good steward of the land and, after all, that expired permit’s annual fee has been diligently and faithfully paid in full —all $524 of it.” ….

“There is another site the company drains for profit while California’s historic drought rages on: Deer Canyon. Last year, Nestle drew 76 million gallons from the springs in that location, which is a sizable increase over 2013’s 56 million-gallon draw” …

“Though there is no way to verify exactly how much Nestle must spend to produce a single bottle of Arrowhead spring water, the astronomical profit is undeniable fact: the most popular size of a bottle of Arrowhead 100% Mountain Spring Water (1 liter) retails for 89¢ — putting the potential profit for Nestle in the tens of billions.

Activists have called for a boycott of Nestle Waters and all Nestle products until they are held accountable for their actions in California.”

Retail outlets across Europe are taking glyphosate off their shelves

From the UK’s Guardian, more news on Roundup and glyphosate. Bear in mind glyphosate is in many other products as I recently confirmed. Most of the home garden sprays in our local supermarket, popular brands too, contained glyphosate. So important to read labels and fine print.

Copy of Copy of Dec 2014 041The Guardian …. “Monsanto is far from happy. The main ingredient of its highly profitable weedkiller, Roundup, often used in conjunction with GM crops, has been declared a “probable carcinogenic”.

As well as being profitable for Monsanto, glyphosate is one of the most widely adopted weedkillers in the world by gardeners and farmers alike. Use of it by UK farmers, for example, has soared by 400% in the last 20 years.

In response to the cancer warning, the US biotech company has been quick to accuse the body behind the new classification of bias. It says the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an arm of the World Health Organisation (WHO), lacks transparency and has made an irresponsible decision – one likely to cause confusion among farmers and the wider public…

Although campaigners in the UK have tried to focus attention on possible risks to human health from glyphosate residues found in bread, toxicologists suggest gardeners and farm workers are the ones most at risk.

“It is difficult to work out the magnitude of cancer risks of glyphosate, but based on the quantities people come into contact with, it can be expected that agricultural workers applying the pesticide are at much greater risk than consumers in Britain, who are exposed via residues in food…..

For those worried about their health, one organisation now allows you to pay $120 (£75) to have your urine, breast milk or tap water tested for glyphosate contamination. Far from scaremonging, toxicologist Dr Robin Mesnage from Kings College London says such testing could help…”

Blues

Hunterville local, Marjie Brickley turned a grassy railside patch into a beautiful wonderland of colour. She and late husband Ralph started 20 years ago by simply planting cuttings from their own garden across the road. This is a real before and after transformation … undertaken primarily by herself … Marjie was widowed soon after they started. She was even chosen as the New Zealand Gardener magazine’s Manawatu-Wanganui Gardener of the Year. Her garden is now a popular attraction for travelers passing through and for locals. View Marjie’s beautiful garden HERE

Retired Rangitikei Farmer Describes ‘Jet Contrails’ Affecting Our Temperatures & Agriculture

A retired local farmer from Rata, Robyn Gilmour,  recently featured in a Manawatu Standard article (January 13, 2014). describing his observations of what he terms ‘jet contrails’ that create haze and smog, blocking out the sun. He says there are sometimes 40 jet trails that stay all day. Rangitikei soil is great he says, and in some parts anything can be grown, but he believes jet vapour trails are blocking out the heat. They are causing cooler temperatures and preventing our region from reaching its horticultural potential he says.

Rata in its day was a thriving settlement. More recently in the 60s and 70s there was the potato growing industry where Goymour worked as a foreman for James Bull’s company (later sold to Watties). Earlier again Rata had a store, a post office and a Dairy Factory which after closing (as all the rural dairy factories did) became a sausage skin factory for a number of years. The settlement on the main road has all but disappeared now.
