Sean: Joseph, one of the first things that I usually ask my guests is the startup journey because that is one of the things that I find people super interested in, I am super interested in and I find that my guests are super delighted to tell us the story. So we'll start with that. How did you get the idea of Humble? Josef: The story of Humble is an interesting one because. It's not like there was one clear moment and then suddenly humble was here. Right. It was really kind of a series of events I would say. And it really started when I met my co-founder, which was three and a half years ago, Nina and we were both working for a different company and we met and we really realized that our values are extremely aligned. And we really want to create something that was meaningful with genuine impact, but we just didn't know where to start. And we felt that our impact was almost insignificant because we were just a couple of people. So that sort of stalled the practicality of coming up with an idea, even though we knew we had to create something. Even sustainability back then really wasn't necessarily at the very front of our minds. It was just creating impact in general. So then the years kind of went by a little bit and we got to the end of 2019. And Nina and I went on a trip to the UK to visit my family actually, went to see my family. I tried to go back once every year. See it has been more difficult recently, but I still have family back in the UK. My mother happens to be a very active environmentalist. She's actually a member of this group called extinction rebellion. Non-violent protest groups really encourage governments to take action on our climate emergency. And I think she was probably the first real catalyst to show us, okay, sustainability is really, not just a problem, but it's an opportunity. And we saw that so many wonderful organizations out there trying to address this problem, you know. Greenpeace, extinction - so many, but not many of them were actually coming at it from a kind of solutions-driven, tech startup, positive points of view for consumers. And it's essentially a numbers game. The more people who take small steps towards living sustainably, the greater impact we have and the greater chance that we have of actually achieving sustainability. So all of this sort of spiraled into one and, you know, we were thinking of what kind of idea can we come up with? How can we do something towards sustainability startup? and Nina and she first came up with the idea of clothing, and kids' clothing. And I'm sure you can probably identify with this, but kids' clothes are very short in lifespan, right? And very quickly you buy and you spend on something new, and then you realize - okay, if I have a younger brother or a younger sister to hang this down too fantastic, then you get one use. If you have 2, 3, 4 children and fantastic, even more use. But at some stage, that stuff is just going to go to waste. So she came up with this concept of really circular kids' clothing and making sure that you know, how can we give one child's clothes to another, once they're finished using it and create this kind of circular ecosystem. I heard this idea and just thought, why don't we think a bit bigger, right? It's not just children's clothing that we're not using properly and actually enjoying the rest of our lifetime, but it's everything. We looked around. All of the clutter in our place looked at the plastic in the corner, the furniture that was kind of over here, but a bit dated, the clothes, the electronics, and realized what if we actually gave this service, which makes it extremely easy for someone to be able to declutter their home or office even, and give it a meaningful outcome, free of charge and will turn up when they want us to?

Decaying oil tanker could trigger an environmental and humanitarian disaster. The FSO Safer is marooned off the coast of Yemen in the Red Sea, close to one of the world's biggest shipping lanes. A massive oil spill or explosion from it could disrupt global trade for months and lead to an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe. It's loaded with hundreds of tons of crude oil, its hull is rusting and it hasn't moved in years. So why isn't anybody doing anything about it? Nominally the Safer is the property of the Saudi-backed Yemeni government. Right now though, both it and its multi-million dollar cargo are controlled by the Houthi rebels in Yemen. UN officials say the Houthis have broken an agreement to allow an inspection of the vessel. The Saudis accuse them of holding the world to ransom over the potential disaster. The Houthis disagree. Ed Butler speaks to Ghiwa Naket, the executive director of Greenpeace for the Middle East and North Africa, to Ben Huynh a researcher at Stanford University, to Hussain Albukhaiti a Yemeni journalist with close links to the Houthi leadership and to Peter Salisbury, senior analyst for Yemen at the International Crisis Group.

Die rund 2,5 Meter langen Solarmodule der rund sechs Meter hohen Installation bestehen aus organischen Solarfolien.Diese Solarfolien sind extrem flexibel. Mit der herkömmlichen Technik wären diese individuellen Formen nicht möglich gewesen, so ein Sprecher der Firma ASCA. Die Nutzung des Solarstroms ist nicht auf das Beladen von E-Bikes beschränkt – wenn gerade kein Rad beladen wird, wird der Strom für den Allgemeinstrom der Tiefgarage der Häuser benutzt.Auftraggeber für dieses innovative Projekt war das Bauunternehmen STRENGER Bauen und Wohnen.https://de.asca.com/projekte/asca-structures-de/solarbaum-von-asca-versorgt-e-bike-stationen-mit-umweltfreundlicher-energie/Hemmersbach für aktive CO2-BindungDen Klimawandel bekämpfen will auch die Firma Hemmersbach – das globale IT-Dienstleistungsunternehmen kündigte eine Initiative zum Klimaschutz an, die komplett aus Eigenmitteln finanziert wird.

Der Erfolg der #emobility steht und fällt mit der Lade-Infrastruktur. Angesichts der immer stärkeren Zulassungszahlen von Elektroautos, sind gerade hier die Versorger gefragt und bauen ihre Netze in einer noch nie da gewesenen Geschwindigkeit aus. Aber selbst bestehende Anlagen und Plattformen können optimiert werden!Das junge Smart-Grid-Unternehmen gridX zeigt genau das! In Kooperation mit E.ON entwickelte gridX eine innovative Technologie, die es ermöglicht, historische Ladedaten und Kundengewohnheiten automatisiert in die Ladeprozesse von Elektrofahrzeugen einzubeziehen und diese somit weiter zu optimieren.gridX stattete einen Bürostandort des Essener Konzerns E.ON bereits im vergangenen Jahr mit dynamischem Lastmanagement aus, welches nun mithilfe von künstlicher Intelligenz auf das nächste Level gehoben wird. Erste Testresultate zeigen, dass mit Hilfe des KI-basierten dynamischen Lastmanagements bis zu 30 Prozent mehr Energie für das Laden von Elektrofahrzeugen zur Verfügung gestellt werden kann – dadurch lässt sich die Anzahl der Ladepunkte an einem Standort ohne Netzausbau nahezu verdoppeln.Wir unterhalten uns mit den beiden Gründern, Andreas Booke and David Balensiefen, die uns einen Einblick in ihr Startup, aber auch ihre ganz persoenliche Entwicklung geben!Unsere allgemeinen Datenschutzrichtlinien finden Sie unter https://art19.com/privacy.

Der Schweizer Technologiekonzern bringt jetzt die nach eigenen Angaben schnellste Ladesäule der Welt auf den Markt. Die Ladesäule heißt Terra 360 und verfügt über eine Maximal-Leistung von 360 kW.Diese Leistung reicht theoretisch, um ein normales E-Auto in ca. 15 Minuten aufzuladen. Für 100 Kilometer Reichweite wäre man bereits in drei Minuten vollgeladen. Die Ladesäule ist modular aufgebaut und bieten eine dynamische Energieverteilung. Damit können an der Terra360-Ladesäule bis zu vier Autos geladen werden. Mit dem Produkt übersteigt ABB die bisher erhältlichen Schnelllader um 10 kW. Es soll Ende 2021 Markteinführung haben. https://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/tech-zukunft/abb-terra-360-schnellste-ladesaeule-der-welt/EnBW legt 2022 Kohle-Kraftwerk RDK7 stillRaus aus der Kohle – das wollen Staaten und Unternehmen. Das gilt auch für den Energieversorger EnBW. Das Unternehmen gab nun bekannt, das man den Block 7 des Rheinhafen-Dampfkraftwerks (RDK) bis Mitte 2022 zur Stilllegung anmelden will. Dies sei ein konsequenter Schritt zur Umsetzung der Nachhaltigkeitsziele, heißt es aus dem Unternehmen. Bis 2030 wolle man seine CO2-Emissionen um mindestens 50 Prozent reduzieren. Bis 2035 sollen sie bei Netto-Null liegen. EnBW hat seit 2013 bereits 9 konventionelle Kraftwerks-Blöcke stillgelegt. Das Unternehmen setzt seit Jahren auf den Ausbau erneuerbarer Energien. Aus Wind- und Solarenergie kommen heute insgesamt 4.900 Megawatt Leistung.https://www.enbw.com/unternehmen/presse/kohleausstieg-stilllegung-des-rheinhafen-dampfkraftwerks.htmlKooperation von DHL und DB für mehr PostzügeMehr Post auf die Schiene – Das ist das Ziel einer Kooperation zwischen der Deutschen Bahn und DHL. Gestern gaben die Sparte DB Cargo und die Deutsche Post DHL Group bekannt, dass sie auf sieben neuen Strecken Postzüge einsetzen werden. Bisher laufen nur zwei Prozent der Postsendungen über die Schiene. Durch die nun bekannt gegebene verstärkte Zugnutzung soll dieser Anteil auf sechs Prozent steigen. Dadurch, dass die Bahn vermehrt nachhaltig produzierten Strom nutzt und der Bahn-Transport durch die großen Mengen viel effizienter ist, ist diese Entwicklung ein großer Schritt in Sachen Nachhaltigkeit. Verkehrsexperten schätzen, dass der Transport über die Schiene siebenmal weniger CO2 erzeugt als der Transport im Lkw. Auf lange Sicht plant die Deutsche Post, den Anteil der Sendungen über Schienentransporte auf 20 Prozent zu erhöhen.https://www.tagesschau.de/wirtschaft/unternehmen/bahn-dhl-postzuege-101.htmlE-Kerosin von Atmosfair für LufthansaNun kann man auch klimaneutral in die Luft gehen – Im Emsland ist in dieser Woche eine Produktions-Anlage für CO2-neutralen Flugzeug-Treibstoff eröffnet worden. Es handelt sich um eine so genannte Power-to-Liquid-Kraftstoff- Anlage. Der für die Kerosinherstellung notwenige Wasserstoff stammt aus erneuerbaren Energien. Die Anlage der Betreiberorganisation Atmosfair verwendet außerdem Gas aus einer Biogas-Anlage sowie aus der Umgebungsluft abgesaugtes CO2. Der Regelbetrieb soll ab dem ersten Quartal 2022 mit einer täglichen Produktion von acht Fässern Roh-Kerosin beginnen. Mit der Lufthansa hat man bereits einen Abnehmer. Die Fluggesellschaft wird für mindestens 5 Jahre eine Menge von mindestens 25.000 Liter E-Kerosin jährlich aus dieser Anlage abnehmen.https://www.manager-magazin.de/unternehmen/lufthansa-atmosfair-eroeffnet-anlage-fuer-klimaneutrales-e-kerosin-im-emsland-a-0c84661b-b239-4e9b-9d20-df2fb9a78482Teppichfliesen-Hersteller Interface bis 2040 klima-negativAuch bei der Produktion von Teppichfliesen kann man Emissionen einsparen – das plant jedenfalls das Hersteller-Unternehmen Interface aus Krefeld. Hier will man seinen CO2-Fußabdruck um ein Drittel reduzieren. Bis 2040 will das Unternehmen sogar CO2-negativ werden. Schaffen will man das durch den verstärkten Einsatz von biobasierten und recycelten Materialien. Interface will sein gesamtes Teppichfliesen-Angebot auf PVC- und bitumenfreie Produkte umstellen. Der Gebäudesektor ist ein großer Umwelt-Faktor: Experten schätzen, dass dieser Bereich für 40 Prozent allen CO2-Emissionen auf der Welt verantwortlich ist. Daher haben bewusster produzierende Bauprodukt-Hersteller einen großen Einfluss auf mehr Nachhaltigkeit.

Patrick Albert Moore is a Canadian industry consultant, former activist, and past president of Greenpeace. Since leaving Greenpeace in 1986, Moore has criticized the environmental movement for what he sees as scare tactics and disinformation, saying that the environmental movement "abandoned science and logic in favor of emotion and sensationalism.” According to Greenpeace, Moore is "a paid spokesman for the nuclear industry, the logging industry, and genetic engineering industry” who "exploits long-gone ties with Greenpeace to sell himself as a speaker and pro-corporate spokesperson" Time stamps: 0:00:00 Opening thoughts 0:09:30 Podcast begins 0:10:45 The story of polar bears and how they tie into the global warming conversation 0:21:35 The first principle of science: skepticism  0:33:30 Climate and doomsday 0:42:30 Milankovitch cycles and climate change 0:54:30 Carbon dioxide isn't the issue 0:58:55 How growing plants in different levels of C02 affects their size 1:11:30 We are a tropical species 1:15:45 It's clear: temperature rises before the increase in carbon dioxide 1:28:15 The three ways heat moves from one place to another 1:32:30 C02 in the ocean   Sponsors: Heart & Soil: www.heartandsoil.co  White Oak Pastures: www.Whiteoakpastures.com, use code: CarnivoreMD for 10% off your first order Belcampo: www.belcampo.com use code: CarnivoreMD for 20% off your order Blazing Bull: $150 off of a 1500 degree grill at BlazingBullGrills.com with code “CARNIVOREMD” at checkout BLUblox: https://blublox.cc/ CARNIVOREMD for 15% off

Learn what one of the world's great campaigning organisations is doing to engage with its audiences more effectively, in a manner that is inclusive and empowering.  Stefan has been with Greenpeace since 1993 and has been driving Mindworks over the past few years. He describes Mindworks as a bit of a garage project within Greenpeace, with freedom to innovate and create new ways of working.  At Mindworks, they dig into the latest cognitive science and social psychology to develop new ways and tools to engage people, to do audience research and to shift mindsets that, in turn, help to transform systems. Their latest project is called ‘The Disrupted Mind', which they started in response to COVID-19 and it aims to find out what opportunities can arise from a crisis; looking at how to change mindsets and explore how a given crisis can be used to drive positive change.  Insight coming out of this research shows that crises are actually a good time to change mindsets. In normal life, most people have quite a fixed world view; people don't like surprises and don't much like to go outside old habits.  When a crisis hits, however, most people are thrown into a state of disorientation and their world view can crumble. It is at this point where one can intervene and say to those who have been impacted: What about changing this or doing that? There is an opportunity to leverage crisis moments for the better.   Visit The Do One Better Podcast website at Lidji.org for information on more than 100 other interviews with remarkable thought leaders.

Join your host, Tobias Sturesson, and his guest, Bob Langert, for this episode on The Leading Transformational Change podcast. In this fascinating and helpful conversation, you will learn how Bob Langert, former VP of Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability at McDonald's, shifted from fighting the company's critics to a posture of listening and even collaborating with organizations like Greenpeace and the Environmental Defense Fund to bring change to the company and to the food industry at large. A practice that could be vital to building a culture of trust, purpose and integrity, but that Bob believes is seldom utilized. Bob Langert led McDonald's Corporate Social Responsibility & Sustainability efforts for more than twenty-five years before retiring in 2015. Currently, he is a columnist and editor-at-large for the GreenBiz Group and Senior Sustainability Advisor for The Context Network, the premier global and agribusiness consulting firm in advancing agriculture. He has been engaged in social responsibility issues at a global level since the late 1980s, leading environmental affairs, animal welfare, and Ronald McDonald Children's Charities' grants. He was appointed McDonald's first vice president to lead sustainability in 2006. In 2007, Langert was named as one of the 100 Most Influential in Business Ethics by Ethisphere.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Dienstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.USA beenden Truppenabzug aus Afghanistan Mit dem Abzug ihrer letzten Soldaten vom Flughafen Kabul haben die USA den Militäreinsatz in Afghanistan nach fast 20 Jahren beendet. General Kenneth McKenzie sagte, damit ende auch die Militärmission zur Evakuierung von Amerikanern, Verbündeten und schutzsuchenden Afghanen. Das letzte US-Militärflugzeug habe eine Minute vor Mitternacht Ortszeit vom Flughafen abgehoben. US-Präsident Joe Biden hatte diesen Dienstag als Stichtag für den US-Truppenabzug gesetzt. Die Taliban feierten den Abzug der US-Truppen. Ein Sprecher twitterte, sein Land habe die völlige Unabhängigkeit erreicht. UN-Sicherheitsrat appelliert an Taliban in Afghanistan Der UN-Sicherheitsrat erhöht den Druck auf die militant-islamistischen Taliban in Afghanistan, die Menschenrechte zu wahren und Ausreisewillige ungehindert passieren zu lassen. In seltener Einigkeit billigte das mächtigste UN-Gremium eine entsprechende Resolution. Das Gremium fordert auch, die Rechte von Frauen, Kindern und Minderheiten aufrechtzuerhalten. Die Entscheidung fiel mit 13 Ja-Stimmen. Die Veto-Mächte China und Russland enthielten sich. Dagegen konnte sich der Rat nicht auf eine "sichere Zone" in Kabul einigen, wie sie der französische Präsident Emmanuel Macron vorgeschlagen hat. Maas berät mit Pakistan über Rettungswege für Afghanen In der pakistanischen Hauptstadt will Bundesaußenminister Heiko Maas seine Gespräche über die Aufnahme afghanischer Schutzsuchender fortsetzen. Nach der Machtübernahme der Taliban in Afghanistan hat Pakistans Botschafter in Deutschland der Aufnahme weiterer Flüchtlinge aus dem Nachbarland eine Absage erteilt. Mohammad Faisal sagte dem "Tagesspiegel", sein Land unterstütze allerdings mit allen Kräften die Ausreise von Afghanen in andere Länder. In Brüssel kommen die EU-Innenminister zu einem Sondertreffen zusammen über Migration und finanzielle Hilfen für die Nachbarstaaten Afghanistans. EU empfiehlt wieder Beschränkungen für Reisende aus den USA Angesichts der steigenden Corona-Infektionszahlen in den USA hat die EU ihren Mitgliedstaaten die Wiedereinführung von Einreisebeschränkungen für US-Touristen empfohlen. Wie der Rat der Europäischen Union mitteilte, wurden die USA sowie Israel, das Kosovo, der Libanon, Montenegro und Nordmazedonien von der Liste der Länder gestrichen, die von den Corona-Einreisebestimmungen ausgenommen werden sollen. Ob sie die Empfehlung Brüssels annehmen, ist zwar den nationalen Regierungen der EU-Staaten überlassen. In der Corona-Pandemie setzen die meisten Mitgliedsstaaten die Empfehlungen jedoch um. China schränkt Zeit für Online-Spiele von Minderjährigen ein Mit harten Beschränkungen will China die Abhängigkeit Minderjähriger von Videospielen im Internet verringern. Künftig dürfen Kinder und Jugendliche nur noch drei Stunden pro Woche spielen - und zwar freitags, samstags und sonntags jeweils von 20 bis 21 Uhr. Zu allen anderen Zeiten wird es Unternehmen untersagt, Spiele anzubieten. Zuletzt waren pro Tag eineinhalb Stunden erlaubt, an Feiertagen durfte drei Stunden gespielt werden. Mit der Neuregelung reagieren die Behörden auf wachsende Sorgen, dass immer mehr Jugendliche eine Spielesucht entwickeln könnten. Waldbrände in Kalifornien bedrohen Ausflugsgebiet Lake Tahoe In dem Ausflugsgebiet um den kalifornischen Lake Tahoe sind tausende Menschen auf der Flucht vor Waldbränden. Sie wurden von den Behörden aufgefordert, das Gebiet um den riesigen Bergsee in der Sierra Nevada zu verlassen. Das seit mehr als zwei Wochen wütende Feuer hatte sich zuletzt in das Urlaubsgebiet im Norden Kaliforniens vorgefressen. Mehr als 3700 Feuerwehrleute kämpfen gegen das sogenannte Caldor-Feuer an, doch der Brand ist erst zu 15 Prozent unter Kontrolle. Westlich von Lake Tahoe brennen mehr als 700 Quadratkilometer, fast 500 Gebäude sind in der Bergregion bereits abgebrannt. Greenpeace feiert 50-jähriges Jubiläum mit Kanzlerin Merkel Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel hat bei einem Festakt in Stralsund der Umweltorganisation Greenpeace zum 50. Geburtstag gratuliert. Ohne Greenpeace wäre vieles im Umweltschutz nicht auf den Weg gebracht worden, sagte Merkel bei der Feier im Meeresmuseum Ozeaneum. Als Beispiele nannte sie das Verbot des kommerziellen Walfangs durch die internationale Walfangkommission 1982 und den Schutz der Antarktis vor kommerziellem Rohstoffabbau. Greenpeace hat heute mehr als 55 Ländervertretungen und über drei Millionen Unterstützer weltweit, davon mehr als 630.000 Fördermitglieder in Deutschland.

On August 19, SeaWorld/San Diego attendants placed ten Orcas in a single tank even when it was known that some of the animals had histories of aggression toward each other. The next day, one Orca, Corky was badly injured, and another, Amaya, was dead. Whistleblowerscalled PETA about the incident and PETA has filed a complaint with the USDA and has called for an independent investigation. Amaya was just six years old and born in captivity. Corky is the oldest Orca in captivity and is also twice the size. They are both logged in the new book, "Orcapedia," a register of all the Orcas, living and dead, who have been subjected to what its author Paul Watson calls "an international slave trade." Watson, a founder of Greenpeace, and known for his actions to save whales, talks with Emil Guillermo about Orcas in captivity. In memory of Amaya, we reprise this interview which was originally released in March of 2021. It also serves as a reminder to not visit and patronize Sea World until the Orcas are released.

The elites hypocrisy is easily seen as Obama celebrates his 60th birthday with maskless guests and elbow to elbow social distancing. Climate Czar John Kerry flew in his private airplane (powered by fossil fuels) to get there, his 17th private plane trip this year alone. Fauci wants to protect public safety by taking away all our rights and freedom using fear to control the populace which is antithetical to the human spirit. Facts do not matter for the political elite. Erik is a West Point graduate, has served in Iraq, and was heavily involved in the development of a pipeline in Israel.

Guest Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace and author of the book Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom, joins Kim and Erik in a robust conversation about the extreme environmentalists. Life on the planet is relatively recent. Science has become politicalized with the narrative that humans are the enemy of life. Humans are not the evil species and the cancer on earth but a beautiful part of nature to celebrate. Colorado at one time had mammoths roaming during an Ice Age and at another time, Colorado was a rainforest. It is better for life when the earth is warm than when it is cold. History shows coldness brings human strife, including the inability to grow food. We are still in an ice age. 1700 was the peak of coldness. There is no perfect temperature, and earth today is colder than most of earth's life. Denver has the worst air quality in the world due to mismanagement of the forests. There is a psychological component to this as the government bullies people into thinking they are bad and need to let the government take care of the problem. Fossil fuels are organic. Fossil Fuels are created with sunshine and plants. People are listening to a climate change narrative that cannot be seen nor proven. Patrick's book and the app Inconvenient Facts are good sources of information.

In this podcast, Khafre picks up where he left off in Part 1, with the changes he underwent after taking part in the 2003 protest against the Iraq War in San Francisco. He was rapping with Richie Cunning and later with a group called B-Pos. He was also putting on shows and touring the country. ​Khafre talks about the systemic racism coupled with capitalism that he experienced negatively when trying to do hip hop shows. It manifested in places like higher insurance rates based solely on the genre of music. He went to City College for a handful of years and then to Mendocino Junior College and studied psychology. He also worked at some group homes up north teaching kids how to make hip hop. After spending a few years there, Khafre returned to The City and got a job at Greenpeace, which put him on the streets of San Francisco raising money for the organization. He became the director of grassroots fundraising there. After a few years of that, in 2013, he married his love of education, hip hop, and his new experiences of canvassing and fundraising, and launched Hip Hop for Change. The spot on KPOO started with Khafre going on a program there to advertise a show he was putting on. Hip Hop for Change on the radio evolved from there. The non-profit exists to take back control over the genre from corporations. Its grassroots fundraising and work in the community to counter white supremacy has been going for more than eight years.

"Learning to Loath GMOs": A Critical Response to the New York Times   Richard Gale and Gary Null PhD Progressive Radio Network, July 27, 2021   In its July 19th issue, the New York Times Magazine published a brilliant piece of twisted pseudo-scientific propaganda. The essay, entitled “Learning to Love GMOs,” is truly stunning. Its author, journalist Jennifer Kahn, takes readers who would have little to no understanding of genetic engineering and genetically modified organisms (GMO) through a fictional labyrinth of out-dated and conflated GMO similitudes to an end point where readers might believe GMOs are really cool and there is nothing to be frantically worried about.    Kahn spins the story of Cathie Martin's research to develop a genetically engineered purple tomato high in the anti-oxidant anthocyacin as the work of a solo humanitarian to improve consumers' health by providing nutrient-rich GMO produce. What is missing from Kahn's equation is that the research was conducted at one of the world's oldest and most prestigious independent centers for plant science, the Johns Innes Centre (JIC) in the UK. The Centre, which is registered as a charity, lists over 500 employees and is funded by some of the largest proponents of genetic-modified plants, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council. JIC's website includes purple tomatoes as one of its projects that combines “transcription factors, biosynthetic genes and iRNA [interference RNA] with the availability of natural tomato mutants.”  iRNA, or Post-Transcriptional Gene Slicing, is a method to silence certain genes the researchers desire to curtail their expression.     The Times article makes an effort to advance the flawed agro-chemical mantra of “substantial equivalence” without citing the term. The early acceptance of GMOs was largely based upon the unproven hypothesis of “substantial equivalence.” The USDA's adoption of this concept during Bill Clinton's first term in the White House gave GM seed companies a free pass to avoid submitting trial evidence to prove the environmental and health safety of genetically modified crops. Since the ruling claims that GMOs are fundamentally identical genetically to their natural counterparts, no compliance of safety regulations should necessarily apply. Therefore Big Ag firms did not have to worry over strict regulatory hurdles, which otherwise apply to other products such as pharmaceutical drugs, processed foods, pesticides, cosmetics and chemical additives.    However, during the past decade a flurry of research has shown that the “substantial equivalence” hypothesis is patently false. Alexandria University in Egypt, the Permaculture Research Institute and the Norwegian Center for Biosafety each found genetically modified crops to be fundamentally different. In addition, studies have confirmed that nutrient levels in traditional, organically raised grown crops are substantially higher than GM varieties. New technological methods to create concise profiles of a food's molecular composition, notably “omics,” were not available in the early 1990s when Clinton wore the mantle as America's first biotech president. Omic technology destroyed the Big Ag's industry's arguments to support the lie about substantial equivalence. For example, Kings College London published a study in Scientific Reports of Nature revealing unquestionable genetic consequences between GMO Roundup and non-GMO corn. The differences include changes in 117 proteins and 91 metabolites.[1]   Despite “substantial equivalence” having been debunked, the erroneous hypothesis continues to linger in pro-GMO propaganda. However, in Kahn's recent essay, she attempts to shift attention away from the early generation of GMOs, which were engineered solely to sell more toxic pesticides, and emphasize GMO's potential for increasing nutritional health and to advance medicine. In order to add a bit of balance, Kahn quotes James Madison University professor Alan Levinovitz who accurately described one fundamental criticism, among many others, against GMOs. “With genetic engineering there's a feeling that we're mucking about with the essential building blocks of reality,” Levinovitz stated. “We may feel OK about rearranging genes, the way nature does, but we're not comfortable mixing them up between creatures.”     But most disturbing is Kahn's failure to make any mention o the trail of environmental disasters and disease risks due to consuming genetically modified foods. She completely whitewashes the matter; she prefers we may forget that Monsanto's soy and corn, which now represent the majority of these crops grown in the US, was developed solely to allow farmers to spray highly toxic pesticides without injuring the crops. These crops contain notable concentrations of the pesticides that then find their way into numerous consumer food products including baby foods. Nor should we forget that Round-Up grown foods may be destroying people's microbiome.  Last year, researchers at the University of Turku in Finland reported a “conservative estimate that approximately 54% of organisms in our microbiome are “potentially sensitive” to glyphosate. Despite her pro-GMO advocacy, if Kahn's conscience had led her to take a moral high road, she could have at least apologized on Monsanto's behalf for the trail of death and disease the company's glyphosate has left in its wake. The company has yet to atone despite losing three trials with $2.4 billion fines, repeated appeal losses, and being ordered to pay $10.5 billion in settlements. To date Monsanto's glyphosate poisoning has been identified with the suppression of essential gut enzymes and amino acid synthesis, gluten intolerance, disruption of manganese pathways, neurological disease, cancer, amyloidosis and autoimmune disease. Her New York Times article would have better served the improvement of public health as a warning rather than an applause to appease companies such as Bayer/Monsanto and Syngenta. And shame on the New York Times' editors for permitting such biased misinformation to find its way into print.    Kahn is eager to cite findings showing GMO benefits without indicating her sources. She tells us that environmental groups have “quietly walked back their opposition as evidence has mounted that GMOs are both safe to eat and not inherently bad for the environment.” Kahn doesn't mention who these groups might be. She reframes the Philippine story of the destruction of genetically engineered Golden Rice; yet around that time even the pro-industry magazine Forbes published an article questioning Golden Rice's viability and noting that its benefits are only based upon unfounded hypotheses. As for its risks to health, GM Watch in the UK points out the work conducted by David Schubert at the Salk Institute that the rice might potentially generate Vitamin A derivatives that could “damage human fetuses and cause birth defects.”   Kahn, who should be acknowledged as a highly respected science journalist and teaches journalism at the University of California's Berkeley campus, happens to be a contributing author for the Genetic Literacy Project (GLP) at the University of California at Davis, a public relations operation sponsored by the agro-chemical industry.  Monsanto/Bayer, Syngenta and DuPont are among GLP's industry partners.  It is one of the most frequently quoted sources of cherry-picked information by pro-GMO advocates and journalists. In our opinion, it is perhaps one of the most financially compromised and scientifically illiterate organizations, founded and funded to disseminate pro-GMO propaganda in order to prop up public support for GMOs and genetic engineering in general. In effect, some universities now act as private industry's lobbyists. This becomes a greater scandal when the university is a public institution receiving public funding.  GLP and its east coast partner, Cornell University's Alliance for Science, largely funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, serve as the GMO industry's clearing houses for public relations to spin science into advertising, propaganda and character assassination of GM opponents.   The Genetic Literacy Project is a key collaborator with another food industry front organization, the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH). ACSH has nothing to do with actual health science. It has been described by the independent corporate financial watchdog organization Sourcewatch as a thinly veiled corporate front that holds “a generally apologetic stance regarding virtually every other health and environmental hazard produced by modern industry, accepting corporate funding from Coca-Cola, Syngenta, Proctor Gamble, Kellogg, General Mills, Pepsico, and the American Beverage Association, among others.” ACSH also favors toxic pesticides, the use of biphenol A in products, cigarettes and hydrofracking.  It is closely aligned with pseudo-medical front organizations that criticize alternative and natural health modalities, such as Quackwatch and the Science Based Medicine network.    GLP sources a couple thousand corporate-friendly studies favoring GMO safety.  One review of over 1,700 studies, known as the Nicolia Review, for a time was the most cited source making the broadest claims for GMO safety.  However subsequent independent and unbiased reviews of Nicolia's analysis concluded that many of these studies were tangential at best and barely took notice of anything related to crop genetic engineering or GMOs. Many studies are completely irrelevant from a value-added perspective because they have nothing to do with GMO safety. Furthermore, other studies in Nicolia's collection conclude the exact opposite of their intention and give further credibility to GMOs environmental and animal and human health risks. When Nicolia published his review, he intentionally omitted and ignored scientifically sound research that directly investigated GMO safety and found convincing evidence to issue warnings.  For example, one peer-reviewed publication by over 300 independent scientists declared that there is no scientific consensus that GM crops and food are safe.  Not surprisingly, there is no mention of this study in the Nicolia Review.   It is no secret that Monsanto and Big Ag have significant influence over UC-Davis's agricultural department and divisions.  The bogus economic studies trumped up by the Big Ag cartel to defeat California's GMO labeling bill Prop 37 were performed at UC-Davis and then publicized through the GLP. Gary Ruskin, who has been filing Freedom of Information Act requests, has publicly expressed deep concerns that UC Davis is acting as a financial conduit for private corporations and interests to develop and launch PR attacks against academics, professors, activists and other institutions who oppose those same corporate interests.     For GMO opponents, the name Mark Lynas, may send shivers down the spine. As soon as any journalist or researcher mentions Lynas' name approvingly, one can be certain which camp the author represents.  You can be assured you will be reading words on dirty laundry washed in even dirtier water. Therefore when Kahn quotes Lynas as if he were an unbiased authority about GMOs, we know we have boarded the wrong train and will reach a destination of distorted scientific facts and self-righteous corporate praise.    The public watchdog group US Right to Know describes Lynas as “a former journalist turned promotional advocate for genetically engineered foods and pesticides who makes inaccurate claims about those products from his perch at the Gates Foundation-funded Cornell Alliance for Science (CAS).” Lynas has accused those who would inform the public about Round-Up's carcinogenic properties as conducting a “witch hunt” by “anti-Monsanto activists” who “abused science.”  Lynas has denied his role as a shill for Big Ag. However, a decade ago, The Guardian acquired a private memo from the pro-biotechnology organization EuropaBio about its initiative to recruit “ambassadors” to preach the GMO gospel. Mark Lynas was specifically named in the document alongside then UN Secretary General Kofi Annan as a prime candidate to pressure European agencies who were skeptical about GMO claims, promises and health and environmental risks. In short, Lynas has been one of Big Ag's most invaluable foot soldiers for over a dozen years.    Similar to the Genetic Literacy Project, the Cornell Alliance for Science does not conduct any agricultural research; yet its tentacles to attack GMO opponents are far reaching in the media. CAS was launched in 2014 after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation granted the alliance $5.6 million in start-up monies. The public relations Alliance makes the unfounded claim to represent “balanced” research about genetic engineered products.  One of its missions is to influence the next generation of agricultural scientists to embrace GMO science. For CAS, as for Bill Gates, GMOs are the only food solution for Africa's future. Five years ago, organic New York farmers mobilized to pressure the Trustees of Cornell University to evict CAS from the campus and halt its influence over the school's prestigious College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.   One argument Kahn wants us to buy into is that there were mistakes made during the early roll out of GMOs in the 1990s. But, somehow, mysteriously and without any solid evidence, we are supposed to believe that these same companies now engineering new generations of crops have learned their lessons. All that has really changed has been the genetic technology for altering plant genomes. The same mind-set that only technology and the quest for food dominance remain. After hundreds of thousands of dollars were flushed away during a genetically modified wheat project, a retired professor of plant agriculture at the University of Guelph in Canada remarked:   "We – scientists and the public – are so malleable and gullible (or is it because researchers and research administrators are just desperate for money?), that we swallow and become promoters of the mantra that GM is somehow going to feed the world: by resolving the monumental threat of burnt toast? Or browning in cut apples? Or flower color in carnations? Really? For shame. Let's be honest. The one and only reason these people, corporations, and governments are funding this sorry use of [lab] bench space is because it may yield a proprietary product."   Following Lynas' lead, Kahn wants us to believe that genes exchanged between different plants is common in nature and therefore manipulating genes between species with genetic engineering tools, such as CRISPR, should not worry us. Yes, plants have acquired genes from other organisms in the past – the far distant past – according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. However, it is so exceedingly rare that these should be regarded as anomalies without any correlation whatsoever to the millions of different genes available to bio-engineer new plant organisms. This has been one of Lynas' pet arguments on his bully pulpit since turning traitor on his former Greenpeace activists and joining Monsanto's legions.    It may also be noted that Jennifer Kahn is an active participant in CRISPRcon, a forum dedicated to “the future of CRISPR and gene editing technology applications in agriculture, health, conservation and more.” Among the organization's supporters are Bayer, the Innovative Genomics Institute, Cornell Alliance for Science, Corteva Agriscience and the United Soybean Board.  A mission noted on its website is expressed in one of its mottos, “The public doesn't trust GMOs. Will it trust CRISPR?” This is a public relations pitch that permeates her Times article.    It is important for independent investigators and researchers to identify and publicize the background of cloaked public relations shills posing as unbiased journalists in mainstream news sources. Kahn's New York Times piece is an example of a propaganda effort without credibility; it is an attempt to disingenuously manipulate the narrative so more Americans will love GMOs. In the wake of the agrichemical industry's efforts to bolster favorable images of GMOs and more recently CRISPR editing technologies, the mainstream media willingly rolls out a red carpet. No equal publishing space is awarded to the scientific critics of genetic engineering who uncover the flaws in the industry's public research. Consequently, journalists such as Mark Lynas and Jennifer Kahn are the norm rather than exception. Today the lesson is clear that money, power and influence sustain the lies and deceit of private industry.  Take on any cause critical of GMOs and agro-chemical agriculture, and Big Ag will come after you. Kahn is seemingly just one of many other journalists the GLP and Cornell Alliance can turn towards to advance genetic engineering's mythologies.    Seven years ago, 70 percent of Americans, according to a Consumer Reports National Research Center survey, did not want genetically modified organisms in their food. In 2018, the Pew Research Center reported that only five percent of Americans said GM foods were better for one's health – which about makes up the number of people who are in one way or another invested in the agrichemical industry. Still over half believe they endanger health. Yet too much has been invested into agro-biotechnology to expect GMOS to disappear at any time. As the public increasingly turns away from genetically modified organisms in their produce, we will expect new volleys of industry propaganda like that penned by Jennifer Kahn to dangle new carrots. For Kahn, one of these rotten carrots is to improve nutritional content. Yet, similar to the Golden Rice, this will need to be proven beyond being an infomercial. We can also expect to hear ever wilder and more irrational claims about how GMO-based agriculture might reduce CO2 greenhouse pollution and save humanity. And we expect much of this PR campaign to be backed by the World Economic Forum's full-throttle Great Reset invasion. In other words, out of desperation to reach global food dominance, the agro-chemical industry backed by western governments will be declaring a full food war against the peoples of the world.  It is time for us to unlearn any illusory attachment we might have to Big Agriculture and learn to loath GMOs.
