Whistleblower: MONSANTO Wants To Kill The Bees To Make Way For Its Super Bee.

“Soon to be whistleblower who worked for Monsanto will be releasing documents detailing how Monsanto planned to kill off bee colonies in order to introduce a ‘new and improved’ species of bee that will only pollinate Monsanto crops.”

Huh? What?

What's Max got to do with bees and would the poster please provide a link that actually shows this "super bee" thing?

It's not that I doubt Monsanto wouldn't do such a thing, it's just that there's enough documented stuff to work with, without makin' stuff up.

Wow, I'm currently working on a post for my blog on the decimation of feral bee colonies and what that means for life on earth. Now I'll have to read this info. and do a rewite.

Rather than killing bees off, Monsanto should develop a strain works as well on their chief executives.

Monsanto is taking risks with not only the quality of our food supply, but the diversity of it, and the ability of it to resist disease which could wipe it out.

“The scientists who called for caution now are saying ‘I told you so,’ because there are signs that a new strain of resistant rootworms is emerging…A committee of experts at the EPA is now recommending that biotech companies put into action, for the first time, a ‘remedial action plan’ aimed at stopping the spread of such resistant insects …"

"There is a rapid emergence of super-weeds, resistant to glyphosate in Roundup Ready crops, and now there is an emergence of Bt-resistant insects. Add to that the emergence of a new organism which is capable of producing disease and infertility in both animals and plants, there is a wide variety of evidence pointing to harm to human health."

Ah hell BW - it's no big thing - sure monsteranto likely africanized bees - to start their program to create and release their own - and likely they will be responsible for the death of the natural food sources and diversity - they may even cause the death of their own mutated products.

Not to worry - there are now 3D printers - hell we can probably program em to print up a burger or steak or salad. Just load em up with proper bio-genetic food stock material..............................Hhmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder if all of the bio food stock material is dead ......... hmmmm.... oh well details - Hey?

Yum. We're all so stupid we'll eat anything as long as we know Monsanto is making a huge profit off of us 'cause they're a big corporation and we worship them even if they cause us to starve to death someday.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (28497) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Hell they have already made a good start in third world countries - selling em sterile seed that when it fails also leaves no replacement starter seed from any surviving plants - OH - wait a sec - that is bad............

UM......Never Mind.

Re. 'MONSATAN', some further important information :

Thanx to 'WikilLeaks' we know that - 'US diplomats by day --- Monsanto henchmen by night' !!! & re. 'US Govt's Corporate Capture', US diplomats were shilling for Monsanto. In a cable from late 2007 :

former ambassador to France, Craig Stapleton, advised Washington to launch a military-style trade war against any European Union country that opposed genetically modified (GM) crops.

"Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits. The list should be measured rather than vicious and must be sustainable over the long term, since we should not expect an early victory," he wrote. Stapleton was reacting to efforts by France to ban a Monsanto GM corn variety. He specifically asked Washington to punish the EU countries that did not support the use of GM crops.

"Moving to retaliation will make clear that the current path has real costs to EU interests and could help strengthen European pro-biotech voices." An embassy cable from 2009 written by a diplomat on behalf of the ambassador to Spain directly cites meetings with Monsanto executives, showing that US diplomats were taking orders directly from GM companies :

From which : ''In Spain, agricultural factions against agricultural biotechnology include the environmental side of MARM and organic farmers. Increasingly, consumers are also expressing negative attitudes toward genetically modified crops. On April 18th, the newspaper "El Pas" conducted a survey on whether or not GM food should be prohibited. The following results were obtained after a one month period: 85% voted "Yes, they can be dangerous" and 15% voted "No, they are absolutely safe".

Also : ''Post also requests USG support for a non-USG science fellow to meet with influential Spanish interlocutors on this issue and assistance with developing an agricultural biotechnology action plan for Spain. Post would also welcome any comments from other posts concerning the anti-GMO campaign.''

Monsanto's director for biotechnology for Spain and Portugal briefed embassy officials about the region, complaining that "Spain is increasingly becoming a target of anti-biotechnology forces within Europe. If Spain falls, the rest of Europe will follow."

In a random insult thrown into the cable, the ambassador says : "Within the agriculture sector, only left-wing farmers' unions have negative opinions of GMOs." which reveals the level of prejudice & ignorance !! Monsanto is probably The Biggest non-bank, corporate threat to the Global 99%, so thanx for this OTP.

This information could not reach a wide enough audience - every single living human being should be educated.

Monsatan and like companies bringing horror to the living in inventive ways.

That the primary purpose of GMOs is NOT in fact to safeguard the environment is suggested by - 'inter alia' a 2012 study by Washington State University research professor Dr Charles Benbrook, who found that the proliferation of such crops has caused increases in the use of hazardous pesticides in the US.

As for the claim that GMOs are a proper antidote to the problem of global hunger, it's worth reviewing renowned environmental activist Vandana Shiva's observation that “one billion people are without food because industrial monocultures robbed them of their livelihoods in agriculture and their food entitlements”.

The following sound bite from Dr. Shiva's appearance last year on the BBC's 'HARDtalk' meanwhile obliterates the notion of ANY positive correlation between the GMO industry and human wellbeing :

"We see the consequences of [seed patenting] in India, where, since the big companies came in and took over the seed supply - especially in cotton - we have had 270,000 farmer suicides, most of them driven by debt and the debt caused by high-cost nonrenewable seeds." from :

GMOs are about control. Just like everything else they do.
