My show last Saturday, September 29th, 2012, had four Guests whom I consider to be Messengers of Truth in a world of misinformation, propaganda, and constant jingles, riddles, and flashing time stealers.
Steve McIntosh, Author of “Evolution’s Purporse: An Integral Interpretation of the Scientific Story of Our Origins,” made several incredible points in our interview.
First, the “Big Bang” theory is not a theory. It is a fact. However, the difference with the factual beginnings of the Universe is that it is compatible with Spirituality. There was an Entity [God] before the Universe came into being.
Life and the universe are not purposeless accidents, as the original ‘scientific’ theory hypothesized.
Secondly, the Environmental movement must evolve in order to achieve its goals.
Steve says that as global warming increases, Environmentalists need to recognize how anti-establishment stridency is discouraging to the mainstream whose support they need to be effective in combating the proximate causes of climate change.
The solution to bringing this Environmental movement into the “mainstream” for immediate, full-scale community [and corporate] action requires a cultural shift that better integrates the Environmental movement with everyday society, and thereby creating greater solidarity within American [and world] culture overall.
I would like to add that I do see this happening as more people start to understand the direct correlation between their consumer and daily choices and the ecological damage that occurs as a result of these choices. I have seen an evolution in the past few years that is exciting to be a part of [albeit it very slow in some parts of the USA].
Third, Economic dominance is not the only way to provide global leadership.
Steve McIntosh encourages Americans to embrace their country’s changing responsibilities.
America’s role in the world is inevitably changing as the globalized economy increasingly empowers other countries, such as China, India and the Middle East.
As our world changes, Americans can prevent the decline of America’s global leadership by evolving their definition of leadership, and thereby evolving their culture into the next stage of historical development.
Through this cultural evolution America can demonstrate a successful form of sustainability, post-material society that provides deeper forms of fulfillment than the rewards offered by consumerism and status.
Fourth, Can artificial intelligence ever truly replicate the human self, resulting in self-conscious machines? “Trans-humanists” subscribe to the theory that self-replicating computers will soon undertake their own evolution, but Steve McIntosh explains how this premise disregards the nature of the self and what it means to be conscious.
Many of Steve’s points are incredibly rich in complexity, and really requires all of us to start thinking. This book stretched me intellectually. This is a “must read” for every person who seeks knowledge and personal empowerment.
Check out Steve’s web site for more: www.stevemcintosh.com
I have talked on several shows about the horrifying, diabolical dangers of Pesticides.
ALL chemical pesticides are chemical warfare weapons that are re-packaged as “home use” pesticides. Don’t be fooled when it comes to the misleading, even fraudulent marketing and advertising when it comes to the supposed safety of chemicals used for pesticides. All of these DNA damaging substances came directly out of Nazi Germany. They are, indeed, chemical biological weapons, and they do hurt people, animals, plants, groundwater, food sources, and all life.
My Guest for this segment, Josh Vincent of the Northwest Center for Alternative to Pesticides, explained the many autoimmune disorders that are directly related to exposure to chemical pesticides that are sprayed routinely around residential homes, in our food agriculture, in our skies [for the misguided and downright stupid "West Nile" spraying], and in gardening.
The pathetic apathy that has overcome our elected officials, and then literally blanketed the consciousness of the Taxpayer is certainly something to be alarmed about. We need to stand up to these powerful Chemical lobbies that don’t care about your future, your health, your food quality, your children’s health, or your pets.
And by the way, those supposed “flea and tick” toxic chemicals that get put into the shoulder blades of our animals are ALSO deadly killers. DO NOT USE THEM! Instead, put Garlic powder into your pets food along with Grapefruit Seed Extract into their water, and just give them a nice shampoo with non-toxic, essential oil shampoos that are now readily available to keep your pets flea free.
When you can trace the DDT exposure all the way to the North Pole, and into the blubber of marine mammals and Polar Bears… you know that these chemicals are persistent and do not ‘fade’ over time. They simply travel throughout the eco-system causing damage to everything they contaminate.
We cannot afford to fall asleep on this issue. This is a big, big issue to overcome and to combat since the Chemical companies are relying on both the ignorance and trust of society to get away with murder, literally.
Check out this informative website and please take action for yourself and for your community: www.pesticide.org
Hemp is a highly nutritious “Superfood” with all Essential Fatty Acids [3,6,9] and protein that can literally feed the world because it is both easy and ecologically friendly to grow. It needs very little water, and actually remineralizes the ground soil as it grows in a process called “phytomerediation.”
Hemp can be used for housing, fuel [replacing petrochemicals], replace nylon, clothing, medicine, PAPER, replaces toxic chemical plastics, food, beauty treatments, making automobiles, airplanes, boats, agricultural feed, natural antiseptics, natural pest control …. and the list goes on endlessly.
So, why would the United States turn their backs on this opportunity to help re-charge both the Environment AND the Economy in one shot by re-establishing a PRO-Hemp agenda?
Why is it currently illegal to grow or cultivate Hemp in the United States? Why are we, as Americans, sending our money to China, India, Canada, Pakistan and other countries in order to IMPORT Hemp seeds, Hemp oil products, Hemp clothing, etc?
The Forestry and Cotton industries are behind the demise of this amazing crop from the United States. They were intimidated and obviously concerned enough to lobby Congress to prohibit Hemp because it was the same family as “marijuana.”
However, Hemp is not a hallucinogenic plant and cannot be smoked for the mind-altering affects that Marijuana offers. Although Hemp is from the Cannabis species, its THC content is negligible and cannot be used for ‘getting high’ as Opponents of Hemp argue in order to keep their special interests as the tax-guzzling crops in America’s farmlands.
The positive attributes of Hemp also include cleaning the air, preventing soil erosion since its roots grow deep, and one acre of Hemp plants produces more agricultural products than 2 acres of Cotton or 4 acres of trees! Hemp trees/plants also clean the air as they release a ton of Oxygen into the air as they grow heartily and quickly in just about any climate.
Thanks to Eric ‘the red’ Hughes of Chi Hemp Industries for his magnificent research over the past few decades, and for your voice in this very important matter for the Ecology and for the future of the Earth.
Check out www.hempoil.ca and get some yummy Hemp products and educate yourself. Let’s take back our future by restoring common sense to both our politics and to the taxpayer/consumer.
Entire families are broken apart… babies are run over cliffs or run to exhaustion and die… mothers are separated from their babies and the cries are unthinkable and heart wrenching… the Stallions are abused and castrated with crude means… the ones that are ‘too wild’ are shot dead…. and too many other wretched and totally un-American abuse of our National Heritage.
The story of our Wild Horses and the ILLEGAL Round-ups overseen by Ken Salazar of the much-corrupted Department of Interior and the ‘subsidiary’ Bureau of Land Management [BLM] has increased, surprisingly, under the Obama Administration. Sadly, it is just one more lie that our current President made when he was campaigning in 2008 and appealing to many Environmentalists like me.
When he appointed Ken Salazar as Secretary of the Department of the Interior, I had a foreboding feeling that nothing good was going to come from this very unhealthy appointment to the Cabinet to the President. This was four years ago, and it got worse with every year in terms of our Environment and our Wildlife.
And, indeed, my sense in 2008 was right. Under Mr. Salazar, we have these illegal Round-ups that kill, disable, and terrorize innocent animals, and then we saw the worst oil tragedy in the history of the world take place in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Thugs that declare a war of Terror are doing it at the bequest of the Oil and Cattle industries.
This is exactly WHY you, as a Consumer, should NEVER buy any beef from just any store under just any name [or McDonald's or any other fast food chain-- the food is NOT REALLY CHEAP! IT HAS A COST UNIMAGINABLE TO YOU, THE TAXPAYER]… you should ONLY buy Local, Organic, Humane, Sustainable, Grass Fed, and small farmed. Every time you ignore your power as a Consumer to create the change you really wish to see in this world, you are denying innocent living beings like our Wild Horses and our Wolves and all other Wildlife the right to live freely… simply because you are inadvertently supporting blood-industries like the big Agribusinesses that lobby Congress to have their way on OUR public, taxpayer lands!
Better yet, go Vegetarian. You’ll be Alkalinizing your body, and naturally healing your body. You’ll also be supporting the Environment in the right way by your lifestyle choices. Remember, all animal products create an ACIDIC body, which is the breeding ground for disease.
The point to my conversation with Suzanne Roy of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign was to both raise awareness to the Consumer and to hopefully inspire people to take Action for our beautiful remaining Wildlife, and for the ecological balance of our last remaining open spaces.
Please take a look at this amazing web site and give your support to save our Wild Horses and Burros from the horrors of Slaughter. They need us.
Thanks for listening. This was an incredible show, and is available in the “Archives” section of this blog.
Tags: A Conversation With Green Building Expert David Johnston, Green Building, Sustainable Home Building Practices
The Insulated Concrete Forms [ICF] and Structural Insulated Panels [SIP] and Straw Bale building materials are strong, forever-lasting, sustainable methods of building that creates healthier homes that are better insulated, sound-proof, and eco-friendly to live in.
Why has America been so slow in adopting these incredibly fast, easy forms of building?
Our old growth forests are disappearing. “Stick frame” building is a post-war “cheapie” style of building that is totally unsustainable. Douglas Fir Forests are being destroyed for this heinous building method that really needs to be outlawed in order to re-direct our building methods to ones that are both more durable and sustainable.
The indiscriminate clear-cutting of short-sighted and greedy lumber companies along with the foolish behavior of our bribed Elected Officials has put our air quality, and the future of all life on the brink.
Did you know that these egregious Lumber companies have lobbied Congress to have YOUR Federal Land “clear cut” for their own profits? Did you also know that these Lumber companies are allowed to walk into the Forest with Guns and ammunition and kill off any wildlife that happen to be grazing or living their lives in the very Forest that your tax dollars are supposed to be protecting?
Clear cutting kills birds, deer, wolves, baby animals of all kinds, and it kills our air quality. The forests are our “Lungs” of the Earth, and we cannot have Oxygen without them.
Wood is not something that should be creating the shell of a home. We need to be using better materials that don’t mold, catch fire, or create havoc on the Earth’s last remaining Forests.
ICF’s and SIP’s are the answer. They are faster to build and the incredible beauty of a Green Built home is unmistakable. The FEELING you get when you are inside a Green built home is also unmistakable. You feel at peace, happy, and you can breathe without taking in fumes from off gassing toxic materials used in most homes by uninspired and uneducated contractors.
My Guest on this weeks show for August 18, 2012 was Author and Educator David Johnston. He is one of America’s top Green Building experts and has written four books that are easy to read and a delight to learn from. Green living is both fun and easy once you know where to get the information you need to create a sustainable, beautiful home and community.
You can also get all of the manufacturers of Green Products [literally from "A" to "Z"] from a think tank called “Building Green” based in Vermont. They publish online Guide called the “Green Spec” Directory, and this is a MUST HAVE Guide on where to buy Green Building Products, pricing, etc. Check them out and join them at www.buildinggreen.com
David made many great points in our conversation this week on HOW to Green Build, and certainly on how to locate and hire an honorable, knowledgeable and competent Green Contractor.
Don’t waste your time with people who are not educated on Sustainable living or building methods. This will only lead to an uphill climb for you, the homeowner, and your dollars are best spent with the good people who have the foresight and motivation to build cleaner, sustainable, healthier homes for their communities.
Children are highly susceptible to off-gassing of toxins. Pregnant women are, too. The elderly, and anyone who is under stress or immune compromised. People who think they are healthy can be struck with an auto-immune disease that seems to come from “nowhere” after being exposed daily to toxic building materials. Allergies, to ADD/ADHD, to learning difficulties, to fatigue and the numerous other modern dis-eases that way too many people suffer from are all able to be traced back to toxins INSIDE the home [and not to mention the ones you cannot control the minute you step outside.]
Natural Clay Plaster walls are brilliant. They come in all kinds of colors, and will release “Negative Ions” into the air, creating a healthier indoor environment. Negative Ions are cleansing and very healing to the body. It is exactly what is released in a Thunder Storm and Rain Storm. It feels good to just be around when you are in a home that has used natural paints, clay plaster, milk paint, clay paints, and natural glues/adhesives.
There really is no excuse for not seeking out such amazing ways of cleaning up the environment.
Starting at home is what I have preached on my show for quite some time. When you start to clean up your home by the consumer choices you make, you will be motivated and even passionate about cleaning up the Environment in which you live.
My Guest, Winston Kao, of www.gobeyondorganic.com gave a ton of information to the Audience listening on Saturday, and now you can hear the show on podcast in the Archives section of this blog.
Swimming in Pesticides: Chlorine in pools is an unthinkable toxic equation. No other developed nation on Earth allows this blood poisoning toxin into pools.
Ozone is the answer to a clean pool without the toxins. Winston also told us about Hydrogen Peroxide as another alternative to toxic Chlorine, which is also used all over Europe and the rest of the world.
“Salt Water” pools are also not healthy, as they are misleadingly promoted as safe as Ocean water, but they are not. Check out Winston’s web site at www.gobeyondorganic.com to find out more.
What is Real Esate doing in the “Obamacare” bill?
and WHY are ALL Congresspeople, Senators, The President, and all Cabinet Members and other Government Regime Bureaucrats AND THEIR FAMILIES completely EXEMPT from Obamacare forever?
Are we now a Marie Antoinette Serfdom?
What about setting us up for a Dictatorship, one [giant] step at a time?
Why is the IRS in charge of what has been sold to the mass media as a “Health Care” Bill? Why would a financial tax bureaucracy be in charge of Health care? Hmmmmmmmmmm.
So many things don’t make sense. And everyone needs to wake up before this Identity/personhood takeover is complete.
Mr. Obama has never had a real job. Never had to work in the real business arena. He has always been a Government Bureaucrat. He believes in Big Government, and he enjoys being in the “Government Elite” where he is protected, and his family is protected.
Did you know that if you sold your house in 2013, if Obamacare is not repealed and dismantled, you will owe the Big Brother Government 3.8% from the sale of your house?
This makes sense to anyone who believes in Socialist regimes where the Serfs work and work and work and work… to pay taxes. The Government Elites conveniently exempt themselves from this as they pocket money from this unfair imbalance of power.
Look up “Codex Alimentarius” on any search engine. Educate yourself. This was signed into Law by Mr. Obama in a very covert way back in January 2012. This essentially takes ALL Nutritional Supplements AWAY from the public and, if enforced, could wipe them OFF the shelves of every Whole Foods, Health Food Store, Internet retailer, etc.
This is one more step to setting up a “Sick” society that is under a Regime, and too weakened to fight back.
Be an educated voter. Mr. Obama is trying to distract everyone with all of his “Social” issues he brings up. Granted, many of these issues ARE important, such as Gay rights. However, if you look at the history of Mr. Obama’s speeches from the past, he was AGAINST Gay marriage just a few years ago!
This guy is trying to throw everything, including the kitchen sink, in the way of his very dark and disreputable past [and present].
I just uncover the facts and bring them to my listeners. I covet my Freedom, and I am not going to live in a Serfdom, Dictatorship, Socialist regime.
Stand up now.

My interview with Attorney Bruce Wagman broadcast on April 28th, 2012 and again on May 5th, 2012 after many outraged listeners asked for a SECOND broadcasting of this important show.
Here are just a few organizations to check out immediately [if you care about tax dollar waste/abuse/reckless laundering]:
Journey’s End Ranch Animal Sanctuary:One Great Rescue Organization With Accurate Information For The Taxpayer
The Cloud Foundation: Support Our Wild Horses And RESTORE OUR NATIONAL HERITAGE ON TAXPAYER LAND!
Wild Horse Freedom Federation: Another Great Organization
Front Range Equine Rescue: Save Our Horses and LEARN About the COVERT abuse of YOUR TAX DOLLARS!
The Bureau of Land Management [BLM], under the direction of a bloodthirsty and corrupted Cattle Rancher named “Bob Abbey” has revved up its taxpayer wasting programs to illegally round-up and kill our beautiful American Wild Horses and Burros.
This abomination and abuse of perceived power on their part is one of the most wretched “programs” that overtly wastes hard-earned taxpayer money.
These round-ups are illegal and were declared illegal by an act of Congress in 1971. What the heck is going on?
Well, when you appoint people like Ken Salazar, another oil/cattleman, to high places like The Secretary of The Department of Interior… You get more bad people like Bob Abbey and his dubious third-party “contractors” who have long histories of abuse on their public record… Add all of these elements together with an incompetent President who thinks nothing of throwing money at bad “programs” regardless of its disastrous consequences… and you have the recipe for Fraud and OVERT abuse.
My conversation with Attorney Bruce Wagman, Partner with Schiff Hardin in San Francisco, struck a chord with me and with thousands of people who heard the broadcast.
Many people are aware of Obama’s abuse of our tax dollars, ridiculous big-government programs, and Czar-appointed behavior, but they had NO IDEA that Obama was THIS BAD!
A joke, a song, a two-step, a scheme, a pretentious act of Diplomacy does not cover nor conceal the truth of the actual behavior and choices any person makes.
The same is applied to Mr. Obama and his list of unqualified, corrupted Appointees to a failed Cabinet with people like Ken Salazar left to literally kill and destroy without one iota of concern for the public outrage at the destruction and bloody trail of horrifying slaughter and egregious waste.
Look at the graphic photos in this website on the truth behind the covert horse slaughter of our beloved horses:
Just Say Whoa!
Photographs of Horse Slaughter And How To Be A Voice To Stop The Betrayal
Prior to Obama duping me and so many others in the 2008 election, he told reporters that he would put an end to horse round-ups and commented on his disapproval of anything so inhumane. Oh, really, Mr. Obama? And now what is your rhetoric with Ken Salazar running loose in your Cabinet?
Let your voice be heard. Email, Call, Write, Join Horse and Burro Advocacy Groups and empower yourself and our future.
My next conversation in this radio show was with Attorney Alexis Baden-Mayer of The Organic Consumers Association.
They have a wonderful Newsletter that I love, and their website alone is both informative and motivating: www.organicconsumers.org
Alexis told us about the dangers of Pesticides in our food, and now the incredibly frightening dangers of Genetically Modified Organisms.
Once again, Cabinet Appointee to The Department of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, an unimpressive supporter and former employee of the big Agri-business industries– has sold out the American Taxpayer and given a big, fat free “PASS GO CARD” to DNA damaging and human cell killer companies like Monsanto and other big Agri-business, GMO monsters.
Sorry, I cannot suppress my disgust and horror of such abuse and deception at the Taxpayer and Consumer expense.
Why have our Organic, small Farmers who take pride in the quality of their products and care about the Earth, been harassed and threatened by the Big Agri-business companies with no help from the US Government?
Why are GMO’s not required to be labeled in Grocery Stores [at the VERY LEAST] and WHY on Earth are GMO’s even approved by the corrupted USDA [also under Tom Vilsack's watch]?
This is dangerous to the health of the planet, to all living beings, and certainly to the future of our food quality and Nutrition.
Remember, you CANNOT be healthy without healing foods. This is impossible.
It is disturbing to see the Propaganda of misrepresentation and outright lies today with Michelle Obama planting an Organic Garden in the lawn of the White House, as though this is going to smooth over the betrayal of our food supply to the millions of unsuspecting people who buy their groceries that are NOT rightfully, truthfully labeled as “Toxic” “Pesticide/Agent Orange Dangerous” or “GMO Frankenstein Food.”
See the irony? See the double-talk? See the Propaganda? See the spin-doctoring?
Don’t be fooled.
We are the people who have to stand up for REAL FOOD and stop this Frankenstein-food disaster from unfolding beyond the wretched damage it has already done.
Small Farmers are being relentlessly pursued, SUED, harassed, and forced to close-up their Farms as a result of the Genetically Modified seeds blowing in the wind and contaminating their Organic crops.
How crazy is this? The US Government does NOTHING to support or protect our Organic, Local Farmers and THEIR RIGHTS but they give taxpayer money, bailouts, and corporate welfare to these dangerous, environment destroying, monolithic, reckless, aggressive, arrogant, chemicalized, life-destroying companies?
What is Mr. Obama thinking? Why is someone so corrupt as Tom Vilsack and every knucklehead he oversees and hires at the USDA given a reign of terror over the American consumer, farmer, body of water, and all life?
The time is now to fight back. Regardless of your personal Political viewpoint, you cannot ignore these facts. They are surprising and truly shocking, but you need to know about them to do something to save your own life, the future of your heritage, the future of all food sources.
My Guest on May 5th, 2012, Susun Weed, gave us a lot to consider when we walk by our neighborhood pond, and even in our own yards and Gardens.
Susun was interviewed after a second broadcasting of the interview with Attorney Bruce Wagman, an Advocate for our Wild Horses and Burros.
You can find Susun Weed on her website Susunweed.com
I have one of Susun’s five books: “Healing Wise”, and I use it as a reference manual to learn more about the herbs growing around me and how to utilize them for healing.
It’s fun to recognize something you used to think was a weed, including the Dandelion! The Dandelion is a very powerful kidney and liver healer. I buy this herb in the dried ORGANIC/Wild cultivated form, along with Milk Thistle, and I take it every day.
My interview with Susun and all of my Guests is available on Podcast on this blog.
Enjoy. Empower. Engage. GET ANGRY ENOUGH TO TAKE ACTION.
Part I: Nuclear Energy Destroys All Life. Every minute of the day.

Part I: Nuclear Energy = Silent, Invisible Killer
“We must go through a natural revolution if we are to survive on earth. We need to change people’s perceptions. If there’s no environment, there’s no human race. We are in a state of global denial.” —- Ted Turner
The two segments of my show aired this week are both relating to our incredible challenge as humans to live life with consciousness, and to really organize ourselves together to start a revolution to take back our world from the daily destruction of leaching carcinogens and invisible killers.
My first Guest, Kevin Kamps of Beyond Nuclear, www.beyondnuclear.org, gave my listeners some horrifying facts about the dangers of Nuclear Energy.
Most Nuclear plants are privately owned, FOR PROFIT enterprises. However, outrageously, they are “held harmless” from their toxic and highly lethal nuclear leakage, mistakes, meltdowns, etc.
In other words, they keep all of the profits from their business, but they are never held responsible nor accountable for the harm they cause people, the planet, our water, air, food, and all life on Earth.
I cannot think of a more scary industry, as no one is immune or exempt to the LEGAL toxic dumping that routinely takes place at ALL Nuclear Reactors around the globe: Strontium 90 is just ONE of the many lethal, highly carcinogenic, radioactive, and DNA DESTROYING waste products that gets dumped into our waterways every year.
These Gene altering, cancer causing, blood poisoning substances are invisible to the naked eye. But they are leached into our groundwater, and contaminate our soil, and thereby contaminate all life on this Earth.
Is this acceptable? What have we been reduced to as Citizens, Parents, Taxpayers, and Voters?
Why do we vote into office individuals who are betraying us with Bribes from special interest groups that seek to profit from poisoning the entire planet? How is this even possible to a rational thinking person…. it defies all logic.
But it is a reality. We, as the innocent receivers of all of this unreasonable responsibility on our shoulders, need to stand up NOW—- IN the WAKE of the Fukushima disaster—- and demand immediate shut down of this toxic waste industry and start to demand Sustainable, Renewable, SAFE Energy for all consumers.
Wow. This should have been invested in a long, long time ago. Why the delay in supporting the renewable energy sector? They simply did not have the tax breaks,or the Washington funding to turn around and give big donations to Politicians.
I cannot believe that this is what most Politicians have allowed themselves to be reduced to: Whores. They will say anything to get elected, they even sound quite reasonable and even progressive in their words and promises…. but what I have been astonished by OVER AND OVER AGAIN is the reneging and outright amnesia that the Washington corruption brings on BOTH SIDES of the aisle.
Personally, I find Obama’s favors to all of the dirty “energy” industries, the Oil/Gas, the Nuclear and the Coal industries have gotten a big PASS GO CARD from Obama and his entire unqualified, ‘cozy’ Administration.
Outrageous. Didn’t this guy campaign heavily on being ‘different’ and ‘transparent’ and even ‘Eco-friendly’? I recall this was certainly the case. But if you look behind the facade, you see that he was generously supported by all of these dirty industries. Let us not forget the dirty Agri-businesses like the cattle industry, too. They have also gotten an unthinkable PASS GO CARD from Obama and his wretched kingpin, Mr. Ken Salazar.
Gross. The ugliness of this reality is horrifying. You see happy, smiling faces on television, but when you truly listen and then do even a little bit of research, you find a whole different, dirty, back-room dealing story that is enough to make you want to storm Washington with a Revolution.
Is this what it will take to bring the lasting, honest “Change” that all of us had in mind? I think it is exactly what it will take.
The letters, the phone calls, the polite Taxpayer inquiries into the matter get us nowhere. I cannot tell you the volume of “form letters” that I get from my elected officials who are increasingly out of touch with the realities of the imminent dangers in dealing with Nuclear, life altering energy.
Check out www.beyondnuclear.org and get involved like your life depends upon it.
Part II: Cork. The wonder product.
“Anything else you’re interested in is not going to happen if you can’t breathe the air or drink the water. Don’t sit this one out. Do something.”
—- Carl Sagan
My Guest in the second part of the show was Patrick Spencer of The Cork Forest Conservation Alliance, www.corkforest.org
Cork is the ONE wood product where you never cut the tree down. You don’t have to kill the tree, destroy forests and the ecology [and all of the other life that depends upon our forests] to harvest the wood product.
Cork is one of the oldest, most sustainable products on Earth.
Cork is resistant to mold, insects, insulates sound and heat, and inhibits fire.
Cool. It is also affordable, comes in many different colors, shapes, and sizes should you decide to use it for flooring…. and it feels good to stand on, walk on and easy to care for.
Cork is also biodegradable AND recyclable!
What is not to like about this “Wonder” in our world!?!!!!
When I did a general search on the internet, I found everything from cork floors, insulation, jewelry, handbags, dash boards, furniture, textiles…. and the list goes on!
Our cork forests absorb CO2, approximately 20 million tons of carbon, every year. We are not ‘slashing and burning’ to harvest it, and we are supporting an ancient practice thousands of years old that supports the Green Economy when we purchase cork products.
Thank you to my Guest, Patrick Spencer, for sharing the wonders of Cork with us. I had no idea that NASA uses cork to insulate the Space Shuttle from the extreme temperature changes in space!
Gee, if it is able to insulate the Space Shuttle so perfectly, how about our homes, cars, and businesses?
“Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth and protection of the country.” — Thomas Jefferson
My Guest today on the show was Arlene Nilsson, the CEO and Founder of eco-friendly “The Hemptress” handbags. www.thehemptress.com
Hemp is hip. It can be used to make wall board, entire buildings/homes, floors, medicine, clothes, handbags/suitcases, utensils, plastic, food, cars [Henry Ford made one over 100 years ago], and a myriad of other consumer products.
Hemp is non-toxic, takes up very little space, and grows fast. It can grow over 10 feet in a few months, and is a wonder plant that has been lambasted by some very worried, threatened AND corrupted industries that want to squelch any competition right out of the marketplace. Industries such as the Cotton Growers, Corn, Petroleum, Timber/Lumber, Tobacco, Mining, and the Chemical industries are behind the absence of Hemp from our Economy.
This one agricultural product can produce Ethanol for fuel, and it can provide millions of jobs to Americans…. so why on Earth are we denied this amazing plant from being grown in America?
Who in Congress or any elected person in an official position can argue keeping this Economic savior out of American industry?
Currently, we are importing from China, Pakistan, Canada and other countries for our Hemp products. This is money that is leaving the American Economy and going right into the pockets of our Foreign [and even dangerous] competitors. China is no real friend of the United States… but they have outsmarted the American mindless Government and overcome the U.S. in just a few short years economically and productivity wise.
Wow. Unthinkable stupidity on the part of our elected officials who have been bribed, and have taken the rest of America down a path of ignorance that can and will cost us our very freedom.
This IS a plant that can restore our national strength, but because of a handful of Lobby groups paid for by the industries that remain threatened by the powers of Hemp…. we, as American Taxpayers, are burdened both Economically and on an innovative level.
Hemp grows fast, and almost everywhere. It requires very little water, and NO pesticides to grow rapidly. The added bonus to Hemp is that it is adaptable to many different climates, and does well in cold weather. Canada is growing Hemp, and loving the profits. Why not replace our toxic, pesticide-laden corn and beet fields with Hemp?
Last year, and once again, Legislation to bring Hemp back to American soil to help our Economic freedom and produce jobs was shot down by the very powerful [and ill intentioned] groups mentioned above.
“Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in an annual growth of the Hemp fields?” — Henry Ford
Arlene gave information that most of us don’t recall ever being written about in the History books in school. both Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were HEMP Farmers! They were not Tobacco Farmers, as is erroneously taught in “His-Story” class.
Also, Arlene highlighted the fact that Betsy Ross made the first American flag from Hemp material, our very own Constitution was written on Hemp paper, and all Military clothing uniforms were made from Hemp until World War II…. any wonder why Hemp has disappeared from our choices as consumers?
I see World War II as a bigger tragedy than could ever be depicted in any book, war movie, or even documentary. It is impossible to show clearly the underhanded and often invisible ‘domino effect’ that the Nazi warfare machine has had on our lives and on all life on this Earth.
Nazi German technology was and remains the most sophisticated chemical and high technology in history. They were many decades ahead of their time, and the United States would have never caught up to this technology had they not literally bought it and brought it to America. So many covert operations took place that will never be totally uncovered but if you look beyond the ‘smoke and mirrors’ of the Propaganda, you see lasting affects of such political bargaining.
Plastics were invented in Nazi Germany, and so were many higher technology chemicals that are now under well-known corporate names like “Monsanto” and “Bayer” and several other companies who continue to burden our world with their dangerous pharmaceutical and lawn, garden, pesticide, and GMO operations.
Because of these powerful, well connected companies to Washington, Hemp has been marginalized as a “drug” or “Hippie Weed” so successfully because it keeps the dangerous PVC manufacturers, chemical makers, GMO pushers, and other Nazi-German spawned corporations inside the closed loop of big, lucrative, profitable, powerful business.

The fighting, killing, and horrors in Iraq, Iran, The Sudan,The Congo and all over the world are about MINERAL and Petroleum resources!
If we had access to Hemp in America, this raping and pillaging of our natural resources might come to an end. Genocide for mineral resources needs to be brought into the consciousness of Americans.
The Sudan: Oil
Iraq/middle East: Oil, Minerals
The Congo: Cobalt, Minerals, Diamonds, Natural Resources [The Congo is has the richest reserve of Cobalt, which is used for high technology microchips for cell phones, computers, etc. People are dying every day for this mineral. Bayer Pharmaceutical is the primary beneficiary of this killing and warfare for this mineral.]
Track the greed.

Sorry so late to blog about this, but our beloved Siamese Cat, “Mina”, was killed by Anesthesia [the week of my interview with Anthony] while at the Veterinary Clinic for a dental procedure. These past two weeks have been heartbreaking, and surreal.
Anthony explained that all governments, worldwide, need to immediately enact public policy to save our world. It is not enough for the consumer to be buying “Green” consumer items such as hybrid cars, organic home cleaning materials, retrofitting our homes to be energy efficient, etc…..
What the world really needs now is for all elected officials to get it together, stop being corrupted by monetary bribes that get them nowhere in the long run… and to enact immediate, swift ecological policies that will save our world from the oncoming famine, environmental destruction, haphazard weather from Global warming, and other environmental disasters.
Yes, I know. It seems like we might have time to wait until “2020″ or some far off time to finally get it together environmentally.
Anthony says this matter is URGENT and needs everybody’s attention right now. He predicts that in as little as two years we could see the ramifications of foolish government inaction and complacency.
We are given a lot of rhetoric from TV Pundits and anyone running for office [their favorite buzz topics are 'education' and 'the elderly' and now the 'environment'.... but they do nothing once elected.]
Where are the cars that run on solar exclusively? Where are the alternative sources of energy for our homes? Where are the legal regulations that stop Genetically Modified “monster” crops? Where is policy the stop to the pollution flowing from our smoke stacks? Why no action from our over-paid and under-worked government bureaucrats, politicians, ‘think tanks’ and other government funded organizations?
Check out Anthony Marr at www.homoesapienssaveyourearth.blogspot.com
Anthony Marr’s new book, “Homo Sapiens, Save Your Earth!” is a must read for anyone who needs to know what they can do to help save our planet! Anthony\'s new book here at Amazon.com
Anthony has been active in saving our wildlife, and has been one of the great voices in this world for protecting our natural habitats, and our important eco-system that depends on our wildlife being left alone and respected for their crucial role in the yin-yang of nature’s survival.
Take time to read Anthony’s blog. He is amazing, and if every person reading this blog [and listening to my radio show that is currently broadcast live from WGCH Radio in Greenwich, CT] did just ONE thing to help every day… could we have a positive result? I believe we can.
Tags: Healthy Farming, love life, Organic Food, Our Tax Dollars Must Support Organic and NOT Chemical Farmers, Save our Bees, Support Organic Farming and Save Our Planet and Our Greatest Resource: OUR BEES
My interview with Sally Leachko of Meadowlake Farm Honeybee Products on July 19th was my second with Sally this year on this most important topic.
We will face famine if we don’t stop the assault on our most precious food producers….
My conversation with Sally Leachko revealed that after World War II, Bayer Pharmaceutical, Monsanto, BASF and other chemical warfare companies began to introduce large numbers of Organophosphates ["OP's"], including “Parathion,” into the marketplace for insect control.
These dangerous chemicals are, in fact, treacherous warfare chemicals designed to kill the nervous system of humans, too.
Bayer’s Pesticide introduced within the last few years is one of the biggest culprits in the disappearance of our Bees. Watch out for anything labeled with “Clothianidin,” made by Bayer.
Bayer, of course, denies any culpability, but the evidence continues to point to this particular pesticide with the colony collapse of millions of Bees in the USA and all over the world.
There are healthy, even more effective alternatives to toxic chemicals…. and here are a few web sites to find the information you need to be part of the movement to take back our world [and its future] from chemical warfare companies:
Bayer is not alone in their chemical warfare crimes. There are a handful of dirty players in this highly profitable and reckless industry.
Keep in mind, however, that during World War I, Bayer was involved in the development and manufacture of many poisonous gasses [in fact, the most lethal known to mankind] that were used in the trenches, including Chlorine gas and Mustard gas.
Bayer was and is a subsidiary of AG Farben [or aka, IG Farben]. AG Farben owned Auschwitz, and is the largest chemical warfare manufacturer in this world.
Do you think, for one minute, that they care about your health? Your family? Your well being? Your water supply? Your food supply? Your heartbeat? Your future?
The Nazi Regime from WW II never disappeared as the chemical warfare propaganda wants so desperately for the general population to be lulled into believing; instead, terrifyingly, they simply changed faces and morphed themselves into pharmaceutical [almost benevolent] organizations with Nazi killers at the helm… but invisible to the naked eye of the public.
AG Farben and Bayer Pharmaceuticals were also involved in the development of the next toxic generation of chemical warfare agents, known as “Lawn and Garden” pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers… the technical name for chemists is “Organophosphate Compounds.” They are highly toxic, and are currently sprayed at an alarming rate onto commercially grown [large Agri-business] crops AND sold to the innocent consumer for home use.
Scared yet? You should be. The companies behind the mass murder during warfare are the very same Sociopaths behind the mass extinction of our precious pollinators and of our entire eco-system.
Do you think they give a damn?
“Neo-Nicotinoid” pesticide is also killing our beloved family pets. These terrible insecticides are put into the very lethal serums given to our animal companions for the ‘control’ of Fleas and Ticks.
DON’T BUY IT. There are natural, more healthy alternatives to toxic pesticides. Most good pet stores sell “DeFlea” and other non-toxic and HERBAL cleansers. Don’t allow any misguided, ignorant commercial ad or Veterinarian to force toxic, chemical pesticides upon our pets. I have a cat who was seriously injured, and my neighbor had a dog who was killed by these very insecticides.
My Notable Quotable for this show:
“The future of our fragile, beautiful planet home is in our hands. As God’s family, we are stewards of God’s creation. We can be wantonly irresponsible, or we can be caring and compassionate. God says, ‘I have set before you life and death…. choose life.’ [Deuteronomy 30:19]
– Desmond Tutu, Foreward, “The Green Bible.”
The time is now to DEMAND from our elected officials that Organic farming practices be supported by our tax dollars AND NOT LARGE CHEMICAL COMPANIES!
Can you believe that Organic is more expensive to buy only because the toxic, chemical laden “conventional” labeled fruits and veggies are subsidized generously by our hard earned tax dollars? This is totally horrifying.
WRITE YOUR LOCAL AND NATIONAL ELECTED OFFICIALS. YOUR VOICE MUST COUNT.
Fruits and Veggies that you should ONLY buy Organic:
Sweet Bell Peppers
Bee Colony Collapse Disorder is manmade. Demand the immediate discontinuance of Neo-Nicotinoid pesticides.

If most Celebrities care about the environment, animals, holistic health, Organic food, being conscious consumers…. shouldn’t everyone?
Aren’t we all stewards of God’s gift of this earth that sustains all life? Don’t we all have a responsibility to TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for our own actions and rally for ecologically responsible governance, companies, products, and services?
Nicole Sherwin, the eco-gorgeous, “Green Guru,” is the founder of Nicole Sherwin Events, domiciled in LA, California.
Nicole does the job of sifting through all of the “green washing” that is out there and brings the many honorable, truthfully “Green” companies and products to her hip, Eco-Zen “Green Lounge” experiences that showcase valuable information and products, organic food and alcohol, along with eco-furniture, eco-travel…. everything.
Nicole’s new site will be launching at the end of June to bring these products and fun facts to all consumers who want to “Go Green” but need a little help in deciphering what is real, and what is– well, totally fake information that is called ‘green washing.’ You can check out http://www.greenloungeexperience.com later this month…
“Some people shy away from responsibility because it brings with it accountability. So let me ask you this, is it more empowering to be accountable for your own actions and attitudes, or to make somebody else responsible?
You see, when we give away accountability we create a state of helplessness.
So I encourage you, liberate yourself—- accept responsibility.”
– Jonathan Wells, Founder, “Advanced Life Skills.”
Countless Celebrities have become Eco-Warriors! Now it’s time for everyone to join this cause for life….
Nicole and I agree that beauty starts on the inside with your heart, soul, spirit, life, thoughts, actions, food choices, what you put into your body both mentally and physically, and with contributions to life.
Be amazed at how beautiful you are when you give back to society, take care of your body organically, holistically, and methodically. A clear mind and a clear body bring a beautiful, thoughtful, graceful, grateful, productive, and successful life.
“The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. Throughout the country that you hold as possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land.”
