Bill Gates has been listed by Forbes as one of the worlds richest men,
so when he makes plans to do something, people take note. Bills
Microsoft money allowed him to build the Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation, with a huge $34.6 billion endowment and the ability to spend
more than $1.5 billion annually on charitable expenditures. This is
partially what allows them to maintain a tax-free, charitable
organization status. Warren Buffet has gifted him shares of Berkshire
Hathaway to the tune of $30 billion. The Gates have more money than
entire nations. Their budget is bigger than the entire yearly budget for
the World Health Organization overseen by the United Nations.
Some of that hard earned money is going into a new project, and it
isnt to build schools in Africa, to reduce poverty in urban cities in
the US, or to build new infrastructure like solar powered city lights.
Bill Gates is spending $30 million in a remote place called Svalbard, a
barren rock near the Barents Sea about 1,100 kilometers from the North
Pole to build a seed bank.
Along with him, pals from the Rockefeller Foundation, the Monsanto
corporation, the Government of Norway, the Syngenta Foundation, and
others are building a doomsday seed bank officially named the Svalbard
Global Seed Vault on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, part of the
Svalbard island group.
This explanation of their modus operandi comes from their website directly:
Ensuring that the genetic diversity of the worlds food crops is
preserved for future generations is an important contribution toward the
reduction of hunger and poverty in developing countries. This is where
the greatest plant diversity originates and where the need for food
security and the further development of agriculture is most urgent.
The Svalbard Global Seed Vault, which is established in the permafrost
in the mountains of Svalbard, is designed to store duplicates of seeds
from seed collections around the globe. Many of these collections are in
developing countries. If seeds are lost, e.g. as a result of natural
disasters, war or simply a lack of resources, the seed collections may
be reestablished using seeds from Svalbard.
The loss of biological diversity is currently one of the greatest
challenges facing the environment and sustainable development. The
diversity of food crops is under constant pressure. The consequence
could be an irreversible loss of the opportunity to grow crops adapted
to climate change, new plant diseases and the needs of an expanding
Apparently, the seed bank is almost ready to conduct business. The
vault will have dual-blast proof doors, motion sensors, two airlocks,
and walls reinforced with meter-thick concrete. Inside will be stored
more than 3 million varieties of seed, and you can bet there wont be a
single GMO seed among them. The Norwegian government states the seeds
are being stored, so that crop diversity can be conserved for the future.
The question is, what global catastrophic occurrence do the investors in
this seed vault anticipate? If you follow the money trail it isnt hard
to figure out. Guess who is participating in this noble project aside
from the Norwegians:
· The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
· US Agirbusiness giant, Dupont/Pioneer (owner of GMO seed patents)
· The Syngenta Foundation Swiss maker of GMO seed and pesticides.
· The Rockefeller Foundation created the gene revolution with over
$100 million invested in GM science since the 1970s
· CGIAR, a global network of Rockefeller Foundation supporters
The only way to stop these imbeciles with extra deep pockets is to start
saving our own seed. If enough of us do this, it wont matter how many
millions of seeds they store in their vault. Plant organic gardens and
share your seed with neighbors. Plant heirloom varieties, and as many of
them as you have space for. Or, better yet, become completely
non-dependant on the food supply. Turn your lawn into a garden. Start
your own aquaponics system, and throw out the politicians who vote to support GMO in any way.
