Please show a single instance where Monsanto has gone after a seed cleaner who has not specificlly targeted non-monsanto to be removed; meaning they were cleaning to ensure they got round-up resistant seed.
You really need to educate yourself on this topic, the idiot sites that are you telling you that monsanto is going after "ANY farmer that does not buy their product" or everything is "now the property of Monsanto" or making seed cleaner illegal are just lieing to you.

Nope that is not the case. What happened is the farmer found some plants that were resistanct to Round-up and had knowledge that the other farmers around him were using the round-up resistant seed.
He then went and did some additional testing to verify the plants. He then went out and collect the seed from the resistant and did additional seed cleaning to remove plant seed that were not resistant. Once he had a high percent of seed he was sure were round-up resistant he proceed to use that and also to sell it.
If they had just been seeds he harvested and had not tried to make special use of the round-up resistant nature he would of been ok. That he made special effort to use the round-up resistance nature of the seed he got into trouble.

Because guy/company that is donating some of them have them marked are garbage variations that normally would of never seen the light of day outside of his lab?
I guess they would not like the free publicity that is going to that lab for the variations that are actually of value and that they will continue to sell the same way as Monsanto.

What scared Hitler and the Germans about Switzerland was not the armed citizens. It was that the place is a bunch of valleys connected by bridges and tunnels and Switzerland use to keep those mined.Germany needed to keep the trains/transportation running between them and Italy.
So you attack them and it is a fight from valley and no more trains or truck transportation.
Germany was planning to attack and take over Switzerland they are even propaganda posters about how they will pick up the small ones on the way home and plans for the German ruling of Switzerland.

This report only goes through part of 2012, since then the release emissions of green house gas has been really increasing. The increase is for a couple of reason, first was the global recession which was probably the cause of the greatest green house emissions reduction in recorded history the second is Japan has switch to power generation with a high greenhouse gas generation. With an increase already from power generation switch and with the economy now coming back the minor decrease they made will soon be gone.
However the main method that Japan reduced the Kyoto number was by paying off organizations and groups in the form of carbon credits and by planting trees. Alot of the trees being planted are in places destroyed by natural disasters so a big bonus for them.

There was a recent survey among people who do not vacinate their kids and fear of autism was not high.
Top reasons given were:
Would prefer more organic items in the vaccine; or prefer a more natural method of having the kid catch the disease and natural immunization.
That they were in a good area so the kids would not catch anything.
Feat of what "big pharma" is doing, how they are misleading people, and cannot be trusted.

The US Government came out with an idea to do this for terrorist attacks after 9/11 where people with knowledge in the areas of the middle east, various groups and other specialties would be invited to a program they could make forecasts. Those that were correct would have money donated to their university or another organization of their choice.
Liberals came out and called it the idea of a bunch of crazies.
