All of us are feeling the pinch of rising food prices these days, and we can’t seem to successfully stop chemically altered, GMO foods from taking over our food supply. Now, a new concern is rising – the shortage of clean drinking water.
It is overwhelming when you think about it, especially if you live in Southern California where city officials are monitoring how many times you flush the toilet. And now, SmartMeters can log when and how long you take a shower!
Things are moving in the wrong direction.
Asleep At The Wheel
All is not lost, though. I believe that most people are kind and loving, and that our naivety is what’s being taken advantage of. Bottom-line, too many people have been asleep at the wheel, which has allowed Big Corps and Big Government to run all over them.
It’s time to wake up and shift gears. If we don’t, then we own accountability for allowing this to continue.
Food And Farming
If you are reading this article, you are aware of the push by Monsanto and our government to replace all natural food with genetically altered food.
It seems illogical that in a “democracy“, it is near-to-impossible to voice an opinion, to influence, or even monitor something this drastic – globally effecting and altering Nature’s food supply.
Consumers can’t even get something as simple as accurate food labeling – basic information disclosing which foods are GMO and which are not.
It seems illogical within an educated and “free” society like in the USA that we have not yet introduced fresh water technology or alternative energy that requires fewer natural resources, like the Tesla/Marx Towers operating in Northern Russia.
Ask yourself why not? Is everyone asleep at the wheel?
We have the intellect, the investment capital, and the opportunities in America to introduce healthy alternatives that can prevent droughts and the increases in food and water costs.
Farmer Paul Kaiser of Singing Frogs Farm in Sonoma County, CA is farming amid the drought, and he is successfully yielding a healthy production of food using fewer resources.
Kasier uses no-till organic farming methods that, without doing any weeding and without using any synthetic or organic sprays, has increased his yields and profits while decreasing his water usage by more than half.
What’s Kaiser’s secret? COMPOST!
Farmers have been successfully growing ample food using natural, recycling methods for centuries. We don’t need genetically altered seeds, pesticides or herbicides to increase the food supply. Kasier is farming in more natural ways, yet he is considered controversial.
Wake up! Monsanto’s GMOs are what’s controversial.
It is possible to change alongside the Earth. Actually, this is the way it’s supposed to be! All animals do this. If the climate changes and we are in balance with the environment, we successfully change with it.
Auctioning Nature’s Resources
I knew that it was merely a matter of time before the Big Companies figured out how to gain profits from selling Nature’s free water.
Water is one of the Earth’s many non-renewable resources, just like oil. “Non-renewable” means that the amount of water we have on Earth is all that we get.
This is enough, though, because Nature recycles the water supply, so under normal circumstances – minus human intervention – there is always enough fresh water available.
And, it’s free to all plants and animals; or certainly should be. We have messed in our nest on this one.
The Earth provides a plethora of natural resources freely available to all life. This is the way it always has been, and the way it must remain.
Over the past 100 years, however, governments and profiteers have put price tags on the Earth’s resources, and greedily usurped them for personal gain.
Like buying at an auction, Nature has been SOLD to the highest bidder. We must stop this theft from going any further.
What’s next – shooting wild animals for drinking out of a stream owned by Nestle??
Nestle® and Droughts
Speaking of Nestle, for nearly 30 years in California, the Nestlé Company has been pumping water out of an underground spring, a feeder creek that fills the downstream water supply, and transferring it by pipeline out of a National Forest on an expired permit.
They also claim that they “own” this water. They may own the land, but it is more than a gray area to claim that they own the collected “rainfall.” Arrowhead Reservoir Company’s original plan for the 48,000 acre-feet of water was to sell it to towns in the arid valleys below.
Firstly, no one really owns the Earth’s natural resources (technically, not even oil and gas). Secondly, they kept this secret. Thirdly, this is actually usury because they have artificially stopped the natural flow of the water downstream.
Don’t forget that when you’re taking a shower, your SmartMeter is monitoring how much water you use, yet Nestle is pumping-dry your upstream water source and selling it back to you in a plastic bottle!
It is clear that everyone has been duped here, but allowing this to continue is where all consumers must get involved. It is time to stop this type of corporate theft and deceit; it is time to over-ride any local, state and federal politicians who have turned a blind eye.
Drinking California Dry
More than 135,000 people have signed a petition calling on Nestlé to stop bottling and selling California’s increasingly scarce water.
Don’t stop until you succeed.
What’s making things worse, though, is the fact that Arrowhead is not the only company tapping California’s springs. Mother Jones reports that many of the country’s bottled-water companies get their water from drought-plagued California, but there are other locations throughout the US draining Nature’s aquifers and profiting from what is meant to be free.
You Can’t Sell What You Don’t Own
It is time for a serious wake-up call – not only for apathetic consumers, but for the misguided corporations that think they own the Earth’s natural resources.
The rivers are our brothers. They quench our thirst. They carry our canoes and feed our children. So you must give the rivers the kindness that you would give any brother…
This we know: the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
