The Life Story of Baa-Baa, a Baby Lamb from Oz

I was born in Oz in 2014.  My mom named me Baa-Baa.

One of the Humans came and took me away from Mom a few days later.

Another Human sent me to the Great Beyond later that day.

RE found some of my Ribs at Three Bears Food Warehouse in Alaska a little while later.  I don’t know how long it took to make it across the Pacific Ocean in the Container Ship, because I was already dead.  My ribs were worth $11.37 in FRNs when they got to Alaska though!  I was honored to be worth so much!


After a few days in the General Electric Freezer in RE’s New Digs, in the New Year of 2015 RE cooked my Ribs in the Countertop Electric Toaster Oven made by Black & Decker and they came out like this.

I can tell the short story of my life now because part of me is now a part of RE.  It was a great life and I am the first Baby Lamb Blogger now!

Discuss this article at the Diner Pantry inside the Diner

Back when I was a boy shortly after we returned from Brasil and Mom & Me started doing the cooking instead of the hired help from the Favelas we had to do these tasks there, I settled on a couple of cuts of meat which were my favorites. Steaks in those days, it was T-Bones.  A nice thick cut, preferably cooked on the outdoor Hibachi BBQ I used for all my grilling in those days, but I was OK with it cooked in the Broiler of the oven too. Hibachi was a little Cast Iron charcoal job which I used for probably a decade of time, and I liked it better than the typical round charcoal grills of the era because it had a little window/slot which let you control to an extent how much air the charcoal got for burning, plus it had 4 levels you could set the grilling grates on, controlling the amount of heat sizzling your meat.  It looked pretty much precisely like the one at right.

On that little Hibachi I BBQed regularly, besides the steaks I often cooked up chicken wings, which I usually left marinating in BBQ sauce overnight in the fridge.  Wings are of course just loaded with fat so they are real juicy and tasty coming off the BBQ.  My mom loved those wings.

For indoor cooking in the Broiler though, my absolute favorite was what mom called “Baby Lamb Chops”.  This is kind of redundant, because  Lamb is by definition a juvenile, its a Baby Sheep.  What the Baby Lamb Chops I liked really were was Rib Chops, and when mom periodically would screw up while shopping she would buy Shoulder Chops, which were OK but just not as tasty and fat laden as the Rib Chops.  Came in cheaper also, so on bargain eating days, the shoulder chops showed up.  Interestingly in those days on the supermarket shelves you never saw Lamb Loin Chops, which seem to be the most often dropped in the meat freezers in the last few years in most Amerikan communities I have lived in. you do find the Ribs, it usually comes as a Rack of Lamb, not as individually pre-cut Chops.  I occassionally will buy a Rack Of Lamb, and I experiment with some of the multitude of recipes you find on the net for cooking them also, but probably because of the nostalgia aspect, I still like the individual chops cut up and then just dropped under the broiler.  No spices, no BBQ sauce, no charcoal flavoring from the grill, just the baby lamb chop.

So anyhow, shopping at 3 Bears meat department back in the last days of 2014, there was a package of Baby Lamb Chops straight from Australia on the shelf, the package you see at the top of the page.  Not cheap at $12.99/lb, but not horrifically expensive by today’s meat price standards, where a Prime Beef T-Bone goes for $23.99/lb sometimes.  I still often find my current favorite beef cut of Ribeyes coming in at $7.99/lb, so the lamb chop price falls in as an intermediate, and I get two meals out of it because again by tradition, one meal always had 3 Baby Lamb Chops on my plate.  Since they appear so rarely in the meat fridge these days, I probably only cook them up maybe 4 times a year the most, so it even can fit inside the SNAP Card food budget, though I finished that experiment a month ago or so.  I’m back to buying whatever food looks good at whatever price now, while I can get it.

 Anyhow, one thing I never really did as a boy was consider where a Baby Lamb Chop came from, thus the reason for the cute little lamb pic at the top of the page.  Being brought up as a city boy far from the farms and ranches where these animals are raised, I didn’t give much thought to the fact such cute little animals were being butchered so I could drop them easily under the broiler. realization did finally come to me one day in ordering a Tongue Sandwich at the Deli, and for the first time I saw the WHOLE TONGUE, as opposed to just the slices that were in the package from the Deli, or in the Deli Sandwich I ate at one of NY Shity’s fine Jewish Delicatessens of the era.  The Stage Delicatessen, Ratner’s, Carnegie Deli and many more smaller less well known ones that were as good or better out in Brooklyn and Queens. realization finally hit me, somebody actually CUT THE TONGUE out of a cow, and I WAS EATING IT!  I was thoroughly grossed out, and stopped eating tongue.  For about two months maybe.

It dawned on me at this point that all the rest of the meat I was eating came from various parts of butchered animals, and I really LIKED Tongue sandwiches, on nice Fresh Rye Bread with the Jewish Mustard on it.  So I got over the shock of seeing that whole tongue sitting there in the Deli counter display, and actually evaluated what part of the tongue was best, which is the thick part at the back.  So I would only buy tongue if it was being sliced from that part.

Since leaving NY Shity, I haven’t found a single Deli in any of the numerous places I lived since then that has a Tongue in the display case or makes Tongue Sandwiches.  This generally was not a Successful Meat far as the Amerikan Palate was concerned nationally.  The only place I have seen Tongue is in the Freezer area of some of the larger Food Emporiums, where you can also find the other internal organs of the slaughtered cows, like Brains, Livers, Hearts, Pancreas etc.  Typical Amerikans don’t buy these parts much, generally only Immigrants from other countries who grew up with these parts as part of a monthly meal choice after slaughtering an animal buy them.

I have toyed with the idea of buying one of these Frozen Tongues, Boiling it up to then slice up and make my own Tongue Sandwich,  but that is a lot of tongue and not entirely sure of the preparation to make it taste like the Tongue I remember from the Jewish Delis of NY Shity.  So I have never done that to date.

Eventually I grasped here that Baby Lamb Chops really did come from Baby Lambs, and found out also that Veal which I really liked as Veal Parmigiana, another one of the regular Meat dishes mom served up, and that Veal was actually from Baby Cows, and the reason the meat was light pink to white was because the baby cows were starved of milk, which is a rather rough way to be born into and then quickly be dispatched from the world of the living.  Did I stop eating Veal because of this?  No again. the years since I have learned about the absolutely horrific conditions that industrial raised animals from Chicken to Pigs to Cows live in, how they get injected with hormones to make them grow faster and antibiotics to keep them all from passing diseases to one another in the crowded feed lots.  Once again though, despite the knowledge of this, I don’t stop eating meat.  Why not?

Basically for the same reason I don’t stop driving a car, which is what would it really accomplish if I did that besides making my life a lot more difficult to manage in industrial society, and in the case of food eliminate from my diet foods I ENJOY EATING?  My stopping driving or becoming a Vegan would not do a damn thing really, in fact even millions of Vegans don’t make any real difference here, the system goes on until it won’t anymore, at which point just about everyone is going to find meat to be a pretty tough thing to put on the plate every day.

Now, generally speaking I find game meat which we can still hunt down here in Alaska to be a little bit tastier, and on a psychological level it’s nice to know that at least until it got shot, a Moose was able to live and roam free in the Wilderness.  However, with the exception of some really god-awful GMO raised chickens I have tasted over the last couple of years, overall the difference between game meat and the industrial ag ranch raised version wasn’t that great overall, and for the most part for most of my life that was all that was available in the way of meat to eat anyhow. as the animals here are concerned, they live in horrific conditions, but then again so do many people these days.  in some respects, these animals are treated even BETTER than people, they at least get some medical care to keep from getting sick and they get fed every day. They get dispatched to the Great Beyond fairly rapidly, they don’t linger on in Nursing Homes with Bed Sores all over their decaying corporeal shell.   You can’t say the same thing for millions of people living in 3rd World poverty right now.

When Homo Sap got started on domesticating Crops and Animals for food 10,000 years ago or more, it’s doubtful that anyone considered the long term consequences of this, it simply seemed like a more efficient way of getting food on the table.  Nor do I think for the most part Homo Sap has ever been bothered by moral qualms with killing animals for food, we evolved as omnivores and eat whatever we can get our hands on.  That is one survival trait that made the species as successful as it was in terms of multiplying up.

Now, in 20-20 Hindsight Vision you can see all the problems that resulted from this, desertification, topsoil depletion and food products that get increasingly more unhealthy by the day, even if you do still have money to buy them.

Over time to come here, this methodology will of necessity disappear, and if Homo Sap is to survive, we will have to grow our food in a way that does not so destroy the environment we grow it in.  That is the next great challenge ahead, and it remains unclear as to whether we will be able to pull that off.

Discuss this article at the Environment Table inside the Diner I have been involved in Doom Prognostication and Analysis since 2008, floating around various websites from to Market Ticker to The Automatic Earth to The Burning Platform, as well as my own Yahoo Group of Reverse Engineering and now the Doomstead Diner, I have of course been exposed to probably every possible Doom Scenario that you could conjure up as plausible.

Besides that, since I am a confirmed Full Doomer, I also periodically review the latest in Graphs and Charts that Financial Bloggers post up, or that Climate Bloggers post up.  Overall, just about all this graphology is uniformly depressing newz.  You have to be a believer in Fairy Dust and Skittle Shitting Unicorns to accept any of the MSM Charts which show “Economic Recovery” anywhere, as my friend Jim Quinn from TBP demonstrated once again recently tracking the Collapse of Retail Sales here in the FSoA.

Hard to imagine how folks will be doing too much Shopping as they drop out of the Labor Force by the Millions:

While both Economic and Geopolitical Doom are both present in Copious Quantities, the current scariest long term possibilities come from progressive deterioration of ecosystems and climate change, which by Guy McPherson of Nature Bats Last’s analysis are not too far off and lead to the Uber Doom scenario of Near Term Human Extinction.

Trying to make sense of the ongoing Collapse and where it might lead requires more than just Graphs & Charts, it requires a narrative which makes sense, is plausible based on current known parameters and trends, and it has to be “accessible” to most people in language and imagery they can understand and relate to their own lives.  Most folks are not Economists, Climatologists, CPAs, Petroleum Engineers or Nuclear Physicists, and any of those are virtually never expert in any other field than their own.  So even experts need a cross-disciplinary narrative to get a good global picture of what is going on here.

Ugo Bardi recently brought up in a few of his blogs on Resource Limits how Science Fiction informed the late 19th, 20th and 21st Century narrative that most people accept as true, that Technological Progress will continue in perpetuity and that the Industrial Culture we have lived under for the last 200 years will not just continue, but become ever more complex and pervasive across the globe.  This type of Sci-Fi permeated its way right down to the Cartoons many of us Science Buffs watched as children.

There are numerous other ancillary narratives that go along with this, for instance that Modern Medicine and Science can cure any disease, that Standards of Living will continue to improve for everyone as they join the Industrial Culture, and that Human beings are too small to affect the earth and its ecosystems. about all those narratives are demonstrably false now.  Country after country falls off the Economic Cliff, basically on a daily basis, and the smaller ones with little access to central credit creation find it ever more difficult to access the energy necessary to keep running an Industrial society.  Standards of Living aren’t improving anywhere, even here at the center of Credit Creation of the World Reserve Currency of the Dollar they are falling as more people each year fall out of the tabulated “workforce”, fewer well paying jobs are available, more McMansions go into Foreclosure and fewer miles are driven in the Happy Motoring lifestyle.  Ecosystems are collapsing everywhere, phytoplankton are down 50% over the last 30 years in world Oceans and species are going Extinct at a rate unprecedented in the Geological Record, even faster than the mass extinction even of the PETM, or Pleiocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, which took out the Dinosaurs.

EBOLA GOES EXPONENTIAL to advanced Medical care isn’t improving, Obama-care is a joke, anti-biotics are failing as drug resistant “Super-bugs” evolve, higher percentages of people are born with Autism and other neurological and physiological problems and food becomes ever less nutritious and ever more dangerous as GMO foods are introduced into the food supply.  Besides that, you have the specter of the Ebola Virus spreading Exponentially in Africa, a disease for which there is no cure and a 40% mortality rate at least these days that is what the WHO is reporting.

Denial is rampant through the society of Homo Industrialis, in large part because there isn’t a good narrative to compete with the Sci-Fi Narrative of never-ending Progress and a better life in the future. this Podcast, Ugo Bardi, Jim Laughter (author of Polar City Red) and I chat up ideas around one type of New Narrative, “Cli-Fi” or Climate Fiction.  Through Fiction, you can explore ideas and make comprehensible what is not generally comprehensible just by reading charts and tables, which in fact most folks never look at at all, they just take the word of “experts”, and every possible side in every scenario has some expert they can enlist to justify their POV, so the hoi polloi tends to believe the side with the viewpoint and outcome they WANT to believe is true.

Cli-Fi is only one of the possible Fictional Variants that can be explored here, Econ-Fi is another one since it still looks like Economic Collapse will lead Climate Collapse by some margin.  Energy-Fi is another one, since how we might adapt to a lower per capita energy world of the future has many possible narratives attached.

This podcast looks mainly at Cli-Fi scenarios, both Medium and Long Term. Hopefully at a future date we will explore some of the other ones as well.

In any event, break out the Microwave Popcorn, sit back and contemplate TEOTWAWKI with me, Ugo Bardi and Jim Laughter.

Discuss this Rant at the Podcast Table inside the Diner


…For today, I figured I should get off the topic of Monetary Madness and Geopolitical Jousting percolating through the daily Newz Reports in the MSM and Blogosphere Punditry to look at another facinating topic of collapse, FOOD. What you eat, how much you eat, where it comes from, how much it costs, who produces it, how far it travels to get to your dinner plate…Food is a fucking Cornucopia of topics to cover for the Doomer!

If you live in the FsoA, or in fact most countries in Europe these days, the first topic that comes to mind when you think of Food is…FAT PEOPLE! Fat People everywhere! Sitting next to you on the bus, train or plane with their flab spilling over into the seat YOU paid for is a real pet peeve of mine. Man, if you can’t fit your bulk into one seat, you should have to buy two! Somebody who weighs 300 lbs takes twice as much fuel to jack up into the air as I do, why is this person paying the same price as me? If Airline tickets were sold like Air Freight, you would pay by the pound, or kilo for you Euro listeners out there. This would encourage regular airline passengers to STAY SKINNY! It might have a downside of encouraging Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia in the flyers as well, but I think the downside risk there is pretty small…

For the rest, LISTEN TO THE RANT!!!!

After a solid week of Blogging on the CANCER that is Monsanto, hopefully at least a few Diners are ticked off enough now to get out of the EZ Chair in front of the laptop and go out and OCCUPY MONSANTO somewhere on September 17th.  Where to DO that though?  Well, Occupy Monsanto has gathered together a list of addresses of various Monsanto offices and affiliates you could converge on, and they are pretty well distributed around the FSoA, from the East Coast of the FSoA to Hawaii.  There are affiliates and offices overseas also,so I have included the list of these also for Diners outside the FSoA.

While the Locations to hit on are pretty welldetailed, it is a bit harder to find folks to get together with on this and pick one in your neighborhood to give the full Demo Treatment to.  The Occupy Monsanto Facebook Page seems to be the best networking place on the web for this at the moment, but at least so far I cannot find a list of organizations to contact or a list of Planned Actions at any given location.

The Occupy Monsanto thread inside the Diner will update with any additional contacts and locations through September 17th.  Diners and Guests are invited to post up any Actions occuring, or contact information for these actions and their Planning Groups.

Few institutions typify the urge to dominate, the urge to control, more than the corporation known as Monsanto. Incorporated early in the age of chemical optimism, 1901, the chemical incarnation Monsanto-of-old, is best known for it’s production of DDT, PCB’s and Agent Orange. If that sounds like a list of weapons of mass destruction to you, like a list of crimes against humanity, then you will not be surprised necessarily, to find that Monsanto is now a “bio-tech” company more or less in charge of the global food supply, more responsible than any other entity, for the introduction of genetically modified organisms (GMO). That Monsanto is located pert’ near the geographical center of the contiguous 48 American States (St Louis), at the center of America’s “breadbasket”, should not be surprising, if you understand modern America as a fascist construction. But then, if you think of Monsanto and America generally as a fascist construction, you probably are growing at least some of your own food, and tend to avoid GMO’s to the extent you can, and probably are in favor of labelling. In which case, if GMO’s make you uncomfortable, Monsanto thinks you are an elitist condemner of the poor, and more or less an Enemy of the State/eco-terrorist/luddite scrum. LOL. (Notice the above corporate emblem has nothing to do with health, food or people. Though Monsanto otherwise bills itself as a “Sustainable Agriculture Company”.)


How inverted has the totalitarianism of the West become, that this guy is able to make an argument about caring for the poor, and get away with it? This guy eats children for breakfast, with a side of puppy dogs and a garnish of baby rabbit balls (oops, jackass, that was not a child, that was a young woman lol.)  This guy never met a fascist he wouldn’t plot the rape of the planet with, over $500 martinis. And yet America defers to clowns like this as if they are the pinnacle of evolution/imperialism, as if the requisite evil of uber-success is no barrier to gross admiration, genuflect before the gods of rapacious greed and crass materialism, all. In a just society a guy like this doesn’t exist. In this society, where corporations like Monsanto rule the roost, he gets to be a host of one of the most highly rated television shows on the mob-neutering boob-tube, (where he glories in raising the bar of cynicism in the most cynical mean-spirited nation there ever was.) Seriously, how does this Monsanto/GMO shill even get to go on television to call this principled young woman a shill, and not be widely denounced, unless this is something very like the fascist North America I claim it to be? This guy would put DDT/PCB/AGENT ORANGE in your breakfast cereal, if he thought he could make a buck and get away with it.


The interviewer here should probably be delivering these questions on his knees. Listening to Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant, one might be reminded of Hannah Arendts’ statement that the most common characteristic of fascism is it’s general banality.


One might better know the character of the thing, by the actions of it’s principle henchmen (less it’s public face.) For instance, the Supremacist Court (aka Supreme supporter of corporate/gov/banking rights) says if you plant non-GMO soybeans in a field next to Monsanto GMO soybeans, you cannot plant your non-GMO second-generation seeds, because of genetic drift. See, beans cross-pollinate quite easily, over long distances. So it is fairly well guaranteed, the regular soybean in one field is going to be contaminated by the GMO next door, genetically. That should be cause to say that GMO is a kind of monopolistic tyranny. But when Monsanto has more rights than people, plants or the land, the Supreme Court is just an elevated version of pit viper Monsanto lawyers glorying in the dressing-down interrogation of gentle old farmer/seed savers. This is an older piece worth reviewing. specifically 16:30-18:10



Which of course if there were any real farmers left, pit vipers like these might get a pitchfork through the heart. But most of what is left of farmers are Archer-Daniels-Midland/Cargill/Monsanto tenant agri-businessmen, who for the most part care about the health and welfare of land and people about as much as Monsanto cares about labelling GMO. Such an amoral people cloaking themselves in the morality of “feeding the world” should be repulsive; but then, in a nation ever at war, upon invasion, ordering it’s soldiers to shoot on sight every male between the ages of 16-65, spraying depleted uranium bullets all over the countryside, lecturing other nations about war crimes, the stench of hypocrisy is so thick as to choke a devil.


Clarence Thomas recently ruled in Bowman vs Monsanto , a case that basically put the final nail in the coffin of seed saving of soybeans, or even the growing of non-MonsantoGMO soybeans. He might have recused himself, being a former Monsanto lawyer, if he were a good man and not a fascist, but it hardly mattered as the decision was 9-0 in favor of Monsanto. Michael Taylor (pit viper extraordinaire), who was instrumental in assuring that GMO’s would not be labelled, and in allowing bovine growth hormones into the food supply, is Obama’s Deputy Commissioner for Foods @ the FDA (a goddamn lawyer!). Perhaps if you voted for Obama and are disappointed with his drift toward all things totalitarian, he will treat you like a spy and charge you under the espionage act for uttering in jest, the word Hope; such is the nature of governance in this age of imperial rot. As far as these people are concerned, you might as well be an Indian subsistence farmer.

So the situation as it stands, is that we in America have handed over the production of food to the enemy’s of all that is good, amoral socio-paths, psychopaths and war-criminal makers of weapons of mass destruction. America, where 200 years ago nearly everyone was engaged in the growing of food, presently a mono-cultural food desert, 2013, in thrall to warmongers. Next time someone says to you that we are feeding the world, ask them how many more desperately poor people living in abject poverty there are, than there were in 1800? The answer is, about 2-3 billion. Combined with a near complete dependence on fossil fuels in food production, and increasing Geo-political instability, that is a holocaust in the waiting, enough to make Adolf Hitler look like a pissant school yard bully.


Where do you suppose the executives of Monsanto are going to be, as that plays itself out? What about the leadership of the FDA and USDA, who have sanctified this hideous arrangement? A Congress that has allowed Monsanto GMO to proceed into the food supply without ANY human trials (the same Monsanto that was responsible for DDT, PCB’s and Agent Orange,) and minimal testing generally?


One does begin to wonder, if GMO’s are a not-so-subtle, not-so-unconscious plot to rid the world of it’s “useless eaters” ie regular people. There is an easy solution to overshoot, don’t you know? At the very least, what is the food equivalent to Goldman Sachs shorting (betting against) the toxic mortgage securities they sell to “muppet” clients? Or “defense” contractors paying politicians to talk about “humanitarian” war? Government fraternizing with al Qaeda in Syria/Libya, which “terrorists” were otherwise the impetus for eviscerating the Constitution, setting up of the total surveillance state?


Monsanto executives investing in the Health Care industry. Which you can bet they do, every single one of them, seeing as Health Care is about the only industry (other than war making) that is growing, in an economy that is otherwise stagnant. Make ’em sick and profit bookoo, off both sides of the proverbial coin.

All this focus on Monsanto, though. Don’t forget about Syngenta, or Dupont, or Dow.




I was in my local grocery store recently, and I thought to myself, is there anything in here that isn’t genetically modified, including the people?


The primary feed animals – pigs, chickens and cattle – are almost all being fed some GMO corn and soybeans. The list of additives in non-animal food products, derived from GMO corn and soybeans is extensive; effective as sweeteners, emulsifiers, preservers, etc, and so cheap (because of industrial scaling and government bias), that nearly every food product on the shelf, is likely to contain one or more on this list (I would list them all here but the list would be longer than the article.)


Which is why “they” won’t label GMO food-products as such, why they resist so intensely, the fight to inform people about what we are eating. Because if they had to label products that contain GMO, people would realize the extent to which we have been duped, treated as guinea pig science experiments. Many would be horrified, to realize virtually everything on the shelf is GMO. There would be an exodus away from GMO product, and even perhaps a kind of legal retribution, cutting severely into the profits and even freedom of those who create and use GMO to feed animals and people.


Maybe there would be an exodus. Maybe not. It is also a truism, the degree to which the mob has been neutered. While Continental Europe on the whole has refused GMO, there is nary a movement in America to require labelling, let alone cut GMO from the food supply. Whatever people like to say about corrupt corporations/gov, our faith in Authority and Expertise is overshadowed only by our Techno-narcissism. This being so strong as to be unimpeachable, no matter how fat and sickly the average American becomes, no matter to what extent our industrial/corporate “Health Care” system is bankrupting us. We are the least healthy, most doctored people on earth.


Seriously, it is impossible to imagine a more effective system of tyranny than to compromise food (and water), while providing unsustainable over-abundance, while offering up an endless banquet of entertainments. All the better to harness the power of the mob, for the purpose of the ruling of the world, and the ruling of the world is what the corporations and banks and government of America do. That is the “they”, who operate most effectively in the dark, the elite players, who resist at every turn the free flow of information about what is really going on.




At the Doomstead Diner, we have been working on something we call the Sun Project (Sustaining Universal Needs), a land acquisition non-profit. We are hoping to acquire approximately 100 acres, on which to build a self-sustaining, eco-technic permaculture farm, to sustain approximately 150 people. Long term, we hope to set up a network of such farms.

Rotational grazing of cows/cattle, pigs and chickens, value added meat and dairy products; market gardening; beer, wine and mead production; off-the-grid building/training; campgrounds; festivals. A self-sustaining and to a degree self-organizing model of neo-tribal living, combining the best and most responsible of the culture we inhabit, and the best of those cultures that were here when Europeans landed.


Permaculture is a design concept, melding the wild and the domesticated, first outlined by Bill Mollison of Australia, expanded here in America by many, including Toby Hemenway: “[Permaculture] gardens…a riotously abundant landscape in which all the pieces work together to yield food, flowers, medicinal and edible herbs, even craft supplies and income for the human inhabitants, while providing diverse habitat for helpful insects, birds and other wildlife…where nature does most of the work, but where people are as welcome as the other inhabitants of the earth.”




There is a surpassing genius inherent in nature, that Humanity has been attempting to subdue and destroy for most of the last 5000 years, accelerated especially since the “enlightenment” following the work of Bacon, Newton, Descartes et al and the birth of Science. That has come to a kind of terminus. We are 7+ billion now, at the precipice of one last desperate attempt to exploit and mine the resources of the earth to sustain a growth pattern and a way of life that is unsustainable, potentially destroying the capacity of the earth to sustain anything like our current numbers, or humans at all, or even life above the single-celled.


There is no more clinging to the status quo that is not doomed. Adapt, as nature so eloquently teaches. Seek harmony with the earth. Heal the body, heal the biosphere. Become like the waterbearers… in the coming of a new Aeon.























Occupy Monsanto: Roundup

Off the keyboard of JD Wheeler

Published on the Doomstead Diner on September 3, 2013


Discuss this article at the Environment Table inside the Diner

An eager young man strides in to the movie producer’s office.  He offers the man behind the desk a stack of pages stapled together.  The executive waves it off and says, “I’m a busy man. You have two minutes.  What’s your story?”

“An evil genius invents this spray that weakens the immune system, allowing germs to flourish, while helpful bacteria die.  Even after the victim’s death, the killing agent is released and can be retransmitted.  The spray can last in the soil for months, even years.  Genetic modification is developed to resist the effects of this spray.”

“So, it basically sounds like you want to make another zombie horror film…”

“No, it’s a documentary.”


The above exchange is fictional — but it doesn’t need to be.  Such a spray already exists, except its primary (intended) victims are plants.  The generic name is glyphosate, but it is much more commonly known under Monsanto’s brand name, Roundup.

Roundup is a very broad spectrum herbicide.  It kills all kinds of plants.  The Scotts company, who sells Roundup to consumers, specifically warns people not to use it in their lawns unless they want to kill the grass.  Part of the reason for that warning is there are a number of narrower spectrum herbicides which don’t affect grasses but kill other “broad-leaved” weeds.

Roundup is actually a mixture of chemicals, glyphosate is only the active ingredient.  The way glyphosate works is it disables an enzyme found only in plants.  That enzyme is essentially part of the plant’s immune system.  Without it, the plant is unable to fight off disease organisms.  So it’s almost like giving the plants AIDS.  Not quite, because at least the glyphosate doesn’t reproduce, but neither is it necessarily used up when it kills the plant.  As the plant tissue breaks down, the glyphosate can be released again to kill again, continuing the cycle until the something does eventually break it down, or more likely, it gets bound to something that doesn’t break down.  Under ideal conditions, that can be in as little as a few days, which is what Monsanto likes to quote, but in heavy clay soils with little organic matter, it can persist for months.

This picture is a good demonstration of the action of Roundup.  The two plants on the left have been treated with Roundup.  The middle one was grown in normal soil, the leftmost one was grown in sterile soil.  The one on the right is the control, it is there to show you what the plants would look like without Roundup, or, if certain fungicides are applied, Roundup also has no effect.

This is where things really start to get scary.  One kind of disease organism that flourishes when you apply Roundup is Fusarium fungi.  Monsanto advertises that glyphosate is safe for animals and humans, because only plants have the enzyme that glyphosate targets.  I’m sure that last part is true.  One of many things Monsanto hasn’t taken into account are the toxins that the various Fusarium species produce.  Those definitely can be toxic to plants and animals.

Much of the GMO crops being produced are so-called “Roundup-Ready”.  These are meant to withstand the effects of the glyphosate.  While the plants do not die, that does not mean they are not being infected by things like Fusarium, however.

Of course, Monsanto isn’t the only one who can develop resistance to Roundup.  Weeds are doing it on their own, not only to the glyphosate, but to the disease organisms.  In the end we are breeding weeds that are healthier and more resilient than the crop plants.

Let’s say that you decide you’re going to grow things naturally.  No way you are going to use Roundup on your veggies.  You’re not even going to use chemical fertilizers, just chicken manure and compost.  Not so fast.  What did those chickens eat?  GMO corn?  Then there’s a really good chance there is Roundup in their manure.  Where did that compost come from?  Was it from Roundup-ready crop residue?  You could be killing your plants instead of fertilizing them.

Luckily there is a fairly simple test.  Watercress is extremely sensitive to any kind of herbicide.  If you mix some of the compost or chicken manure in some water and use it on some watercress, if it does not kill off the watercress then it is probably safe.

Another problem with glyphosate is that is binds itself to other minerals.  This can cause deficiency diseases in plants, animals, and people, and it also means that the supposedly deactivated glyphosate in the soil can be reactivated by application of a high phosphate fertilizer.  Talk about zombie plant killers!

And as I said in the beginning, glyphosate is merely the active ingredient in Roundup.  Inactive ingredients, such as POEA, are sufficiently toxic that drinking as little as half a cup of Roundup could lead to coma or death.

Back to plants, something that has been showing up in fields treated in previous years with Roundup is Sudden Death Syndrome.
The same kind of plants would be fine in one row and dying in the next, because the soil beneath the latter was treated with Roundup.

Monsanto has a lot to answer for, but much of the damage it has done has been because of their best-selling herbicide Roundup.  In the end it has the potential to kill a lot more than just weeds.

When RE, head admin and creator of the Doomstead Diner, asked me to write an article about the evils of Monsanto I was a bit confused by the request at first. “Aren’t we just preachin’ to the choir” I wanted to know. What am I going to write about that most people don’t already know? Most of what I know is from documentary films such as Food Inc., a Michael Pollan book or two (as well as many other books), the occasional internet article, as well as the annual report generated straight from Hell. Haven’t heard of that report? It’s called the Earth Rape Newspeak Players Ball Report and it’s discussed at the annual Newspeak Players Ball. This is the real purpose of the Bilderberger meeting every year. It’s where the awards are handed out by Satan himself. Monsanto has won four out of the last 10 awards with Satan praising their use of the word sustainability. He took the time to point out (at last years Earth Rape) how wonderfully crafted and full of diverse and pure Newspeak Monsanto’s “AboutUs” section of their website is:

At the heart of Monsanto is a very clear and principled code of conduct – one we expect all employees, contractors and management to live by every day. We operate under a genuine value system—our pledge—that demonstrates integrity, respect, ethical behavior, perspective and honesty as a foundation for everything we do.
A key part of fulfilling the promise of our value system is by engaging our communities in a significant and positive manner. Not only do we work hard to support the family farmer in a variety of ways, but we also:
  • provide extensive educational programs – particularly in science and agriculture – for students around the world
  • fund numerous research grants for graduate students
  • work in partnership with government bodies, non-profit agencies and advocacy groups to make agriculture more sustainable”
While I’m at it, here’s a video from Monsanto’s website that might make you throw up a few times.

This type of write up makes me very angry. Newspeak makes me angry in general. But this is particularly pernicious Newspeak. Monsanto making agriculture more sustainable? Is that why 16,196 Indian farmers killed themselves in 2008, with over 15,000 suicides a year from 2002 to 2008 according to Wiki. These deaths are mainly due to Monsanto’s BT cotton, but more to the point it’s due to Monsanto’s “sustainable” agriculture methods. Now, I study and practice permaculture methods, which are actually sustainable agriculture methods. Monsanto practices chemical mediated, genetically modified, monoculture. Sustainability with plants depends mostly on diversity. That’s why in nature you don’t see monocultures. You see thousands of different species of plants growing in a true melting pot of diversity.
Monsanto’s agriculture is the opposite of sustainable. They move into a country and get the farmers (whom practice sustainable agriculture passed on through generations) to plant their GM seeds which will not grow without Monsanto’s application of poisonous chemicals. So now the farmer is beholden to Monsanto to get their crops to grow. To add insult to injury the seeds are what are known as “terminator seeds” because subsequent generations of the plant are sterile and will not produce the next years crop. So the farmer must buy more seeds from Monsanto. By this time Monsanto has complete control of the farmer (and their land) since the farmer cannot afford to continue the charade without a hefty loan from the bank, which they will never be able to repay since they will never see a profit. No worries, cause Monsanto doesn’t give two shits about the farmers and their human needs. They’ve got huge machines that run by satellite programming to do the job of the farmer. This is the real reason why there has been an epidemic of Indian farmers committing suicide over the last ten years. So I guess if farmers killing themselves, genetically modified terminator seeds, and numerous application of deadly poisons is sustainable than Monsanto has nailed it. So this is the “variety of ways” that Monsanto “supports the family farmer”? By making them debt slaves whom find it practical to hang themselves?
There are many evils associated with what Monsanto is doing, but to my estimation, the most evil thing they have attempted to do is to patent life itself. Percy Schmeiser, of Saskatchewan Canada, can tell you all about that. His story is pretty well known, but in 1998 Monsanto sued him for growing their patented GM canola seed. Now, he didn’t grow their seeds, their seeds contaminated his 50 years of work cultivating an heirloom canola variety. That happened because nature has this amazing capacity to pollinate with pollinators. His fields got contaminated with Monsanto’s bull shit and then Monsanto sued Schmeiser for growing their crop without permission (luckily they did not succeed). I guess maybe next Monsanto will try to take the birds and the Bees to court for cross pollinating their patented genetic modifications?  What’s with the birds and bees anyways? Don’t they know there is law to follow?  Damn nature and it’s anarchic form of resilient life.
As far as genetically modifying natures design goes, this is what Monsanto has to say about that completely risk free practice:
 There is no need to test the safety of DNA introduced into GM crops. DNA (and resulting RNA) is present in almost all foods. DNA is non-toxic and the presence of DNA, in and of itself, presents no hazard.
 Indeed, no need to test the effects of splicing non-plant DNA into plants such as the “fish tomato” with it’s winter flounder anitfreeze transgene spliced into it for better frost protection. Granted, this fish tomato was not brought to us by Monsanto, but their logic applies here, and they were the first company to apply genetic modification to food crops. There is no need to test whether or not this is a safe practice because “DNA is present in almost all foods” and DNA is “non-toxic.” Right, so sign me up for a “fish tomato” sandwich with round up ready corn on the cob. While I’m at it, why not some genetically modified soy formula for my 3 month old with a BT Cotton onesie. Might as well get him ready for his diet of mostly poisonous food so that he can get a head start on being sick for the rest of his life. But hey, at least he won’t be hungry while he’s dying from cancer.

The last thing we need is more chemicals on planet Earth. Monsanto is in the business of making humanity even more dependent on chemicals. A quick google search for “pollution in the womb” uncovered this gem:

Umbilical cord blood from 10 babies was tested for 413 industrial chemicals and pollutants. The tests found an average of 200 of these chemicals in each newborn, and a total of 287 chemicals in the group. The umbilical cord blood of the 10 babies harboured pesticides, consumer product ingredients, and wastes from burning coal, gasoline and garbage. Some of the chemicals found in the cord blood are banned or severely restricted in the US.
Among the chemicals found were:
– eight perfluorochemicals used as stain and oil repellants in fast food packaging, clothes and textiles, including the Teflon chemical PFOA. PFOA was recently characterized as a likely human carcinogen.
– 21 organochloride pesticides.
– dozens of widely used brominated flame retardants (PBDEs) and their toxic by products, used in TVs, computers, foam and many other products. They are also found in some foods.
Of the 287 chemicals detected in the study, 180 are known to cause cancer in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests.
I wonder how many of those organochloride pesticides are brought to us by Monsanto and their ilk? So we’re going to Occupy Monsanto on September 17th. Everywhere. Not sure what my part will be short of writing this article. But maybe I’ll put a sign up on the busy roadside in front of my house that says something like “Monsanto pollutes our wombs.” Or “Monsanto causes cancer.” Anything to bring attention to the evil that is being perpetuated in the name of profit by this ridiculous company and the food production philosophy they labor to cultivate. We don’t need genetically modified foods in moncultures. It is not a sustainable practice. It is quite the opposite in fact. It causes more virulent and pesticide resistant pests for our food crops. It causes slaves to be made from simple farmers whom then kill themselves out of desperation. It causes humanity to ultimately be at the mercy of those who would seek to control all of our food for no other reason than profit via patents on plant DNA.
The question you have to ask yourself is do you want your food to be cheap, nutritionally deficient, and destructive to sustainable cultures throughout the world? Or do you want your food to be nutritious and produced using natural methods that mimic natures design while facilitating healthy human societies? We can do that as a species if we decide to. There is a lot stopping us from accomplishing the later goal, and Monsanto is behind a good bit of that reasoning. There is no reason why we can’t produce all of the food we need as a species in a way that is regenerative, healthy, and supportive of all life systems involved in the ecology of food production. It’s not a mystery. We know how to do it, and it does not require the use of man made chemicals that pollute the wombs of our unborn children, cause cancer, and convince simple farmers that killing themselves is a better option than remaining Monsanto slaves. We have the solutions. We can fix this mess. But we won’t if you don’t pull your head out of the sand and start paying attention to the evil’s being perpetuated by corporations whom care about nothing but profit. And at the expense of the health of our planet and all of the species on it. We don’t own the Earth, but we do share it with billions of other life forms, a healthy majority of which we are actively exterminating with the practices of our civilizations Big Agriculture headed up by the likes of Monsanto.

AVENTURA under wayVery entertaining week here on the Diner, as we were joined by The Sea Gypsy Philosopher, Ray Jason.  Ray lives on his Yacht AVENTURA, and currently is hanging out down in the Banana Latitudes sipping the Captain Morgan while occassionally performing the Juggling Act complete with Bowling Balls that made him famous on the Streets of San Francisco.  Ray is currently getting absolutely hammered inside the Diner with questions about living the Sea Gypsy life, which he has been at for some 25 years now.

Onto the topic for today though, another brief episode of I Spy Doom here on the Diner.  Still working on parameters for getting up longer ones, and getting better with the Vid Editing.  For this one, I improved on learning at least how to Trim a Vid to eliminate unwanted stuff at the end, and make it brief.  I am still loathe to shrink down the Quality of the Vids to make for smaller file sizes though.  This one came in at a whopping 80MB for 2 minutes of vid.

For this one, I cruised through the Produce Aisles of the local Konsumer Paradise, checking out the Fruits and Veggies from all over the Globe that make their way up here to the Last Great Frontier.  While the Farms up here are suprisingly Productive (at least to people who don’t live up here), probably 95% of the Fresh Produce available at the Supermarkets comes from the Lower 48, mostly WA State for stuff that grows in Temperate climates, and from CA, Mejico and Cheelay for the more Tropical stuff.

What I note in this video is how IDENTICAL all the various Fruits and Veggies are, and how NICE they LOOK!  Nothing like the F&Vs I remember from the Open Air markets I went to tagging along with our Cook when we lived down in Rio de Janeiro in Brasil in the 60s.  There you had some shrivelled stuff, some stuff with Worm Holes through it, and certainly no two pieces of fruit ever looked IDENTICAL.  Even once we returned to the FSoA in the 70s, the market F&Vs did not have this quality of “perfection”

Thing is, all these various forms of produce nowadays that are sold in the Groceries have been bred specifically for how they LOOK, exactly what Nutritional Value is left in these various forms of Industrial Ag produce is open to question.  Besides that, many if not most Fruits are not bred from SEEDS anymore, they are reproduced artificially through Grafting proceedures.  Obviously, you cannot reproduce SEEDLESS Grapes or SEEDLESS Watermelons using SEEDS!  LOL.  All of these Fruits are basically Genetically Identical, so once a pest develops to take one of them down, they will ALL go down TOGETHER!  This methodology of Ag Reproduction preceeds the current work in GMO by quite some time, probably goes back Centuries, but REALLY took off here in the last 50 years or so.

It is not all bad in theory either far as the Doomer is concerned, with some creative Grafting and a real good Green Thumb, you probably could get a single Citrus Tree to produce Lemons, Limes and Grapefruit all from the same tree.  Or a single Apple Tree to produce Macintosh, Delicious and Green Apple varieties. You would of course need access to the various Live Slips of the varieties to do this.

The OTHER reasons all these F&Vs look so great in the Supermarket is they have been sprayed to beat the band with Pesticides while growing, and then while sitting in the Rack on the Grocery shelf are sprayed regularly with Preservatives that keep them Fresh Looking for days.  Stuff like the Corn for Human Consumption (actually a pretty small part of the total Corn Crop) is wrapped up tight with plastic to keep air from getting to it, but what happens went you cannot get hold of the MILES of Saran Wrap necessary to wrap up this stuff daily in the local Grocery?  Or drop the latest pick of Blueberries into a Refrigerated Display?  Answer, shelf life will decrease by orders of magnitude.

Because so much of the food we now eat is highly dependent on a variety of food preservation methods that are themselves dependent on Oil, even if here in the FSoA where we are in theory “Food Self-Sufficient“, once the transportation and preservation methods available by harnessing the vast energy of Fossil Fuels becomes scarce, it really won’t be possible to move these types of foods in this form even just around the FSoA, much less around the WORLD as is common practice right now.  If you are going to be eating any Fresh Produce in the future, it will have to be grown very nearby, and the Industrial Ag methods of Cloning these crops for the most part will be unavailable. you will need something becoming increasingly difficult to come by, FERTILE SEEDS THAT BREED TRUE.  Generally known as Heirloom Seeds, Monsanto and Conagra seek to make these as unavailable as possible, and even lobby to pass laws that will make their distribution ILLEGAL.  The time is NOW, while you can still get them to lay in a Supply, and also to start active cultures of plants grown from these seeds going in your garden or in your Hydroponics set up.  Nicely vacuum sealed with Nitrogen, they probably last a few years, but the best way to have viable seeds for next year is to save seeds from this year.  Seeds mostly did not evolve to last years or decades, in Nature they only have to last from one growing season to the next.  So even if you do not have a LOT of property, or even can only grow Hydroponically in your Basement or Living Room as Peter does, it is probably a wise idea to start some cultures of these plants growing and collecting the seeds each season of growing.

When TSHTF finally, said Heirloom Seeds will be more Valuable than GOLD.

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
