" King of kings' Bible - 2 Esdras ...6:22 (ii) And suddenly shall the sown places appear unsown, the full storehouses shall suddenly be found empty (of food, including the seas from over-fishing)
6:23 (iii) And the trumpet (6th or 7th - Rev. 9-10) shall give a sound, which when every man heareth, they shall be suddenly afraid.
6:24 (iv) At that time shall friends fight one against another like enemies, and the Earth shall stand in fear with those that dwell therein, the springs of the fountains shall stand still, and in three "hours" they shall not run.
6:25 Whosoever remaineth from all these that I have told thee shall escape, and see My Salvation, and the End of your World. -
"If we throw mother nature out the window, she comes back in the door with a pitchfork."

"Gute Gartengeräte sind wie beste Freunde – schwer zu finden, aber wenn dann fürs ganze Leben." so lautet ein Spruch aus England. Und weil mit gutem Werkzeug bekanntlich schon die halbe Arbeit erledigt ist, sollte die Wahl des richtigen Spatens, der richtigen Hacke oder der Grabegabel nicht nur vom Preis bestimmt sein. Wichtig ist auch das Material.
"......Kupfer in seiner reinsten Form sollte in jedem gesunden Boden zu finden sein. Willi Gehlen, der sich selbst "Kupfer Anton" nennt, düngt deshalb sogar ab und zu mit Kupferspänen. Er meint, der Kupferabrieb sei gut für die Erde. Er kann den Wasserhaushalt im Boden günstig beeinflussen und bodenwichtige Mikroorganismen fördern. Schon Victor Schauberger entwickelte deshalb landwirtschaftliche Geräte aus Kupfer. Leider sind die Geräte nicht sehr billig. Dafür kann man aber, am Putzen sparen. Die Geräte sollten nicht gereinigt werden....."
"...Copper in its purest form should have to be found in each healthy soil. Willi Gehlen, which calls itself “copper Anton”, fertilizes therefore even from time to time with copper splinters. He means, the copper abrasion is good for the earth. It can affect the water regime favorably in the soil and promote soil-important micro organisms. Already Victor Schauberger developed therefore agricultural devices from copper. Unfortunately the devices are not very cheap. However one can save, at the flash. The devices should not be cleaned..."
The surging demand for corn, sugar cane and vegetable oils to make Earth-friendlier biofuels is pitting hungry cars against hungry people, and troubleâ€™s brewing, says sustainable development pioneer Lester Brown.
"...In effect what we have are 800 million motorists who want to maintain their mobility and two billion people who want to survive,..."
Rising population, water shortages, climate change, and the growing costs of fossil fuel-based fertilisers point to a calamitous shortfall in the world's grain supplies in the near future, according to Canada's National Farmers Union (NFU).
Thirty years ago, the oceans were teeming with fish, but today more people rely on farmers to produce their food than ever before, says Stewart Wells, NFU's president.
In five of the last six years, global population ate significantly more grains than farmers produced.
China's insatiable demand for proteins as well as oil is turning Brazil into the takeaway for the workforce of the world. In the second part of our series, we reveal how the soya trade is creating a gold rush which is deforesting the Amazon
One in six countries in the world face food shortages this year because of severe droughts that could become semi-permanent under climate change, UN scientists warned yesterday...
"...Today the food system is even more reliant on cheap crude oil. Virtually all of the processes in the modern food system are now dependent upon this finite resource, which is nearing its depletion phase."
"The human race is living beyond its means. A report backed by 1,360 scientists from 95 countries - some of them world leaders in their fields - today warns that the almost two-thirds of the natural machinery that supports life on Earth is being degraded by human pressure...."
"... "An estimated 90% of the total weight of the ocean's large predators - tuna, swordfish and sharks - has disappeared in recent years. An estimated 12% of bird species, 25% of mammals and more than 30% of all amphibians are threatened with extinction within the next century. Some of them are threatened by invaders."..."
"...Fish farming has delivered cheap salmon to the consumer - but at a high environmental price. In this in-depth investigation, Stuart Millar talks to farmers, ecologists and scientists about the growing crisis ..." "...Perhaps the cruellest irony of the exponential growth in fish farming is that it has come close to driving wild fish, the very creature it was designed to save, to the brink of extinction. Over the past 10 years, wild salmon stocks have declined to all-time lows, but in the north-west Highlands, centre of the aquaculture industry, stocks have been devastated. The cause: infestation of sea lice on wild fish caused by the proximity of caged salmon...."
