A brilliant assessment, by my hero Vandana Shiva, of the magnitude of what we are up against. I highly recommend watching this video below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGCrbX2vUXc&feature=share
What can we do about it? Create small, sustainable, natural farms with hand tools. If you can't do that yourself, support those who are attempting to do this.
Raise heirloom and heritage vegetables, fruits, and grains; save and share the seed. Raise, and breed out heritage livestock.
Spend as little money as possible, on all the things that support the industries that are destroying the planet. Every dollar you spend, is a vote for what you want more of. "Vote" for the environment every chance you get.
Switch to open software. When Bill Gates chose to team up with Monsanto, I decided to not send anymore money Bill Gates way, and I had scythe friend and open software expert, Andy Graybeal, help me switch my pc over to Ubuntu open software. Andy can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Below is an interview with Dr. Vandana Shiva done in a more positive setting, where something environmentally constructive is actually being accomplished. The inteview took place on March 16, 2011, during the "Grandmonther's University"; a three day course at Navdanya Biodiversity Farm at Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India which Dr. Vandana Shiva founded in 1987 to help save traditional seeds.
