Why start with: what permaculture means? Because many people don’t know what it means, A lot of people think that it’s the normal agriculture with nothing different and that you are crazy because in this time of crisis, catastrophes and war you think only about nature and having some lush vegetables in your garden…but permaculture or synergistic agriculture, as you prefer, is not only a method to work the soil and have lush and sane vegetables but it’s above all “taking care of people”.

Getting to the root of the problem in Madagascar
February 26th, 2013 by Daniel Reeds
When Daniel Reeds visited Madagascar he was struck by the beauty of its ecosystems and people, but also by the appalling poverty. However, he found inspiration from a pioneering charity that works with humans and wildlife, to ensure a sustainable future for both.

Madagascar is one of the world’s top biodiversity hotspots, with approximately 4% of the Earth’s plant and animal species living there – within just 0.4% of the planet’s surface. Many species have yet to be named or even discovered. However, it is also one of the most impoverished and least developed countries in the world, ranking 151st out of 187 in the UNDP 2011 Human Development Index.
Additionally, it’s one of the top three countries most vulnerable to the effects of climate change through factors including unsustainable agricultural practices. View full article »
Final Update 25 dec 2012 Over 1000 dead. Despair Sweeps bopha Survivors http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2012/12/201212237565413785.html
Super Typhoon BOPHA with 275kph winds to hit Philippines.. update the massacre toll has risen to at least 500 with more than 400 others reported missing and about quarter of a million people made homeless. At least three cities on Mindanao’s east coast remain cut off after bridges collapsed and roads were swept away by floodwater.
As they become more common, climate related disasters may allow prosecution of the big Oil Companies, which they could be sued for billions for willfully dumping CO2 in the air for profit, with clean alternatives available.
You cannot say that one climate massacre is caused only by climate change, but statistically we know that they are. Just as a child with thyroid cancer living next to Fukushima may have contracted it by chance, but if the cancer rate has increased 1000%, then nine out of ten victims are caused by the Nuclear meltdown.
To take that analogy further, if ten possible victims of Climate Chaos sued Exxon, nine of them would be real victims, only we can’t say which nine…. View full article »
Cheap tests on leaf traces can now show exact local pollution levels, and can prove the the exact source and composition of the invisible toxic chemical cocktail of NOx and SOx we live in.
Soon victims and their families will be able to take Court cases against polluting industries and the oil and vehicle industries.
In the UK about 40,000 people p.a. die as ‘extra deaths’ caused by air pollution, and the WHO gives a figure of 2,400,000 deaths a year world wide.
All these and the countless ill and disabled are due compensation from the greedy capitalists who use this technology KNOWING FULL WELL THAT POLLUTION FREE ALTERNATIVES EXIST (See below).
A team led by Dr Barbara Maher at Lancaster University have developed and proven a technique which measures pollution levels precisely by View full article »
