Argentinian Federal Prosecutor Fabián Canda has officially filed a request to the Federal Administrative Court of Buenos Aires to prohibit the sale of GMO seeds that are designed to be grown with glyphosate herbicides (Roundup Ready), due to the probable harm to human and environmental health being caused by the weedkiller.
Canda’s request, which is based on the precautionary principle, also calls for a ban on the aerial spraying of glyphosate herbicides and a 5 km no-spray zone surrounding population centers, schools, villages, farm houses, rivers, lakes and groundwater wells.
The snowstorm that hit the plateau of Chubut brings devastating consequences for small goat producers, especially those who were surprised by the snow and unable to collect their animals.
That is evident as residents of the area Talagapa, an area located 100 km (60 miles) north of Gan Gan, where the snow was piling up and winds generated white walls that buried the animals.
On the plateau after the storm, producers riding through the fields found a significant number of dead animals, especially goats.
Monsanto have announced that they will dismantle their half-built multi-million dollar GMO seed plant in Malvinas, Argentina, following protests from local citizens over the past 3 years.
Local Malvinas citizens and GMO Free campaigners from across Argentina forced Monsanto to stop the construction of their GMO seed plant in 2014, through well-coordinated protests at the construction site.
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, former First Lady and President of Argentina (2003-2015), confessed in an interview that “instead of having the courts chase us, they should be giving us a Nobel prize for economics… We inherited a country in default and we left it without any debt. ” Brilliant.
Amongst her accomplishments, Cristina boasts one sovereign debt default after failing to negotiate with creditors (2014), cooking the national economic figures for 8 years, an IMF censure for faking such data, devaluing her currency from 4:1 to 15:1 USD, and leaving her successful with 50% inflation. Perhaps the BoJ could use her advice?

You might mistakenly assume the collapse came about because of global warming. That’s because articles about the collapse fail to mention that the glacier is growing. Yes, GROWING.
So how did ABC News handle it? They spun it this way:
“Experts said the collapse has nothing to do with climate change and was instead all to do with physics.”
Funny, isn’t it? The glacier is receding? Oh my God, it’s global warming! The glacier is advancing? Oh, that’s just “physics.”
