France Becomes The First Country To Ban All Five Pesticides Linked To Bee Deaths

From herbs-info.com

In May 2018 the EU banned three of the significant pesticides implicated in the collapse of bee populations. Clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam are now prohibited for use on crops.

However France has gone a step further and set the high bar in the effort to save the bees. Given the importance of pollinators to nature and the survival of the biosphere, this could not happen too soon!

Studies have reported that the neonicotinoid pesticides attack the central nervous system of insects, leading to loss of memory and homing skills, in addition to reduced fertility. Bees that cannot find their way back to the hive quickly die. However the pesticides have also been shown to affect butterflies, birds and other pollinating insects.

There is a reason why France is ahead of the field in this regard: The “bee killing” pesticides were tested first on French fields in the 1990’s – and the French farmers witnessed first-hand the catastrophic effects that occurred in 1994; describing “a carpet of dead bees”. 400,000 bee colonies died within days – yet the story was buried under a layer of corruption and distorted science.

Since that time, activists and manufacturers have battled to control the situation. We covered this story in full in a previous post: Overwhelming Evidence Linking Neonicotinoid Insecticides To Massive Die-off Of Bees And Songbirds

The new move is certain to be celebrated by ecologists and sets an example of protection of nature that the rest of the world needs to follow.

Blueprint of Monsanto’s “black ops” public relations machine REVEALED: See the names of fake front groups and science hacks who took part

(Natural News) It’s no secret that companies like Monsanto do everything in their power to keep the true toxicity of their products under wraps. Big Food, Big Ag, Big Pharma and the like have all been accused of similar tactics across the board. But the lengths to which Monsanto has gone to keep the world from knowing the truth about glyphosate (the star ingredient in its flagship product, Roundup) is truly disturbing.

After the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC) labeled glyphosate a “probable human carcinogen,” Monsanto engaged in a covert operation to slam the findings from every avenue — and they recruited a number of partners to help them save face.

Recently released documents provided by US Right To Know (USRTK) show that the biotech firm enlisted over a dozen “industry partner” groups in their plan to denounce the IARC findings and keep Roundup in the public’s good graces. An internal document dated February 2015 describes a detailed plan, in which 20 Monsanto employees were given goals to “neutralize impact of decision,” engage in “regulator outreach,” “ensure MON POV ” and “lead voice in ‘who is IARC’ plus 2B outrage.”

Monsanto conspires with “industry partners”

In the five-page document, Monsanto lists four tiers of “industry partners” to be used in their “preparedness and engagement plan” for the IARC’s carcinogen rating for glyphosate. The plan, of course, was put in place nearly a month before the IARC publicly released their finding that glyphosate probably causes cancer — which raises substantial suspicions that the biotech giant knew what IARC was going to find.

Uh oh, top NASA scientist claimed in 2008 that all ice would vanish from the Arctic by summer 2018 – how could the godfather of ‘global warming’ get it so wrong?

From Natural News … intriguing isn’t it people? More porkies from our ‘esteemed’ leaders.

(Natural News) Climate alarmists are everywhere — but real science continues to show that these scaremongers are the ones full of hot air. Back in 2008, a top “climate prophet” from NASA predicted that the Arctic would be free of sea ice by summer 2018. But data from 2017 has shown quite the opposite: Ice mass in the Arctic has been growing — not disappearing, much to the chagrin of climate change propagandists everywhere, no doubt.

In June 2008, James Hansen — then-director of the Goddard Institute of Space Sciences— reportedly told the Associated Press, “This is our last chance.”

Hansen is also known as the “godfather of global warming science” (but perhaps global warming mythology would be more fitting). Before Congress, Hansen further declared that we had long passed the “dangerous level” of greenhouse gasses. Ultimately, the NASA expert concluded that within 5 to 10 years, the Arctic would be “free of sea ice in the summer.”

Despite the fears of major ice melts being propagated by Hansen and other proponents of climate change propaganda, the truth is that sea ice mass in the great north has been increasing. How is it that Hansen, the “godfather” of global warming could have gotten it so wrong?

Whatever the reason, over the last decade reports have continuously shown that sea ice mass is not under siege — though that is what the alarmists want you to believe. In September 2017, shocking data from Greenland showed that sea ice mass had increased by a staggering 40 percent since 2012.

But that’s not all: As Natural News writer Tracey Watson revealed, sea ice mass has been trending upwards for years. Reports from different agencies in 2015, 2014 and 2013 all showed similar trends: Arctic ice mass was increasing by leaps and bounds — not melting away into nothing as the propagandists promised.

Independent journalism investigation reveals the CDC to be hopelessly corrupt when it comes to vaccine safety research

(Natural News) More damning truths about corruption at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have been uncovered by investigators from the World Mercury Project, revealing that the nation’s top public health agency has been actively working alongside criminal elements to hide the facts about the dangers of vaccines.

Information compiled as part of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests made by the World Mercury Project show that CDC officials gave preferential treatment to unscrupulous scientists at Aarhus University in Denmark, including the infamous Poul Thorsen who was exposed for conning American taxpayer dollars in order to manufacture false safety data about the connection between autism and vaccines.

As explained by World Mercury Project board member Brian S. Hooker, who also serves as Science Advisor at the group Focus for Health, the CDC knowingly refused to evaluate the claims made by Thorsen, even after it was revealed that he had basically stolen $1 million in grant money to pocket for himself.

At least four high-level CDC officials were informed about Thorsen’s illicit dealings in the name of science, and yet none of them did a single thing to address them, nor did they perform due diligence in taking a second look at Thorsen’s work after it was revealed that he’s nothing more than a conman posing as a science researcher. These individuals include:

• Dr. Coleen Boyle, Director of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD)

• Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp, Chief of the Developmental Disabilities Branch

• Joanne Wojcik, a Public Health Analyst at the Developmental Disabilities Branch

• Diana Schendel, a former senior epidemiologist at the NCBDDD

Multiple studies that the CDC uses as “evidence” that vaccines don’t cause autism are completely fraudulent

What these four individuals refused to do was tell the truth about multiple studies about autism that were published without undergoing the legally-required ethics clearances. These studies include the Danish Psychiatric Central Register, which was published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, and a population-based analysis of the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine, also known as MMR, that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
