No doubt money was the first reason this was looked at with an interest from those worried about growing crops in areas where they can't grow well
now due to miserable soil, often strip and burned as in rain forest areas (dumb) or no use of crop rotation that destroyed the ability of any soil to
be reduced to chalk. You had constant drought in the US Midwest in the early 1930's and they plowed over the land and planted again and the dust bowl
created "black blizzards". One of my cousins driving from Indiana to California in 1932 (along with a lot of people at the time) died in just one of
those unbelievable dust storms in Nebraska. He was buried and found months later, almost mummified.
They sent him back home to be buried and was advised that despite being Catholic and having a wake (visiting hours of the departed, and usually done
with an open casket unless it would gross people out. His Dad, my great uncle took look at him and the family had always done what they could (like
Don Corleone' with Santino in the God Father) to try to clean up the person, but was so shocked by what he saw, and it was him though his Dad
couldn't tell, had to be hospitalized and no open coffin for that poor dude... Thats what weather f*** ups can do and now more then ever thanks to
the environment saying "treat me like this, allow me to show what happens if you piss off Mama Nature"
The agricultural PTB saw this kind of "largess" as an public relations bonus to making money if they could help us and people overseas from this
persistent horror. Some, quite a few who were in various occupations in companies that designed GMO foods, and suppliers I have to say the ones I met,
who actually been in places like sub-Saharan Africa and huge ares of former rain forest the fragile (and thinnest soil on Earth from Asia to Africa to
South America) were in my opinion totally shocked after seeing this first hand. And sincere.
As for pissing off Mama, we have to be careful not do so in any area including GMO, or any organism or environmental screw ups. Nature has
unbelievable robust and adaptive capacity while I try to incorporate natural; as in biological and other organic-synthetic, or "tweaked" systems
with our technology. But we just poisoned ourselves so much by the early to mid 20th century industrial infrastructure such as coal burning that in
the early 1950's caused a lethal tempeture inversion and stagnant weather that caused one very respiratory-toxic brew to cover London and other UK
industrial cities, the the death toll was horrendous. Cancers no doubt later sky rocketed.
I don't off-hand recall how many died, someone in the UK can get the figures if even the ability to tie cancers to that event was even possible. But
they had fairly good emergency medical care being a hold over from war time response methods and the NHS, the socialized medical system. As the US
Public Health Service did a lot of the same until the bureaucratic "cancer" complicated things so much for your American friends, or not thats a
friendship that I think has done good for all of us. I don't agree with socialized medical systems, despite the fact the US has LONG HAD IT in that
SOMEONE had to pay the bills of those who showed up in hospitals dyeing,
Were simple care could have prevented that insane approach by paying for basic care before you keel over. No one was EVER turned away, or ever should
be, LONG BEFORE Obama. but it, the UK or Canadian or Australian you know every other modern democratic country like the military can quickly
organizing a response to a calamity. The Public Health Service did just that until it got a zillion personalities and government workers to do
paperwork, not the medical work but form fillers. Idiotic. Sorry to drone on but it all boils down to doing the right, thats moral thing. I will cover
my view how we treat, when emergencies require it, and bill those countries were illegal aliens come from, ET's? Hey my treat.
But what does concern me in anything we do with screwing with nature when it is perceived we are not just killing our species. But I have a very
strong feeling the Ghia entity as Earths total connected environment will if that environment and not its silly stupid species F*** ourselves the
possible response is the same as any living thing that deals with a threat. Be it an attacking organism, infection, other entity/person/animal, the
fact is all living things have the right at an instinctive level to defend themselves and when a threat is however perceived as major, the response is
aggressive often fatal and immediate. Ghia is an entity-organism in my the sense of self is the awareness of all living things, but no less going to
do any and everything to survive. That could be our downfall if we fail to see anything but the human race as divine. Divine? Acknowledge it. More
