Unfortunately some disinfo shill was dominating the comment thread on his site so I just went ahead and cleaned it up a bit 😉

Why on earth would anybody need aluminum resistant seeds?

From a testing company

From a testing company website:

Very little Al+++ in the soil solution is required to cause damage to most plants. Few, if any plants grown for commercial purposes in this country will tolerate more than 1.0 ppm of soluble Al+++, and most will have some problems at levels greater than 0.5 ppm.

Aluminum is a common metal in soils.  It is a significant toxin in acid soils (or soils exposed to acid rain) causing stunted roots (no rootlets ergo poor plant health).  Good picture on that site as well.

Here are that site’s general conclusions

— When the soil pH is below 5.0, soluble Al is almost certainly a problem.

— When the soil pH is between 5.0 and 5.5, soluble Al likely a small problem

— When the soil pH is between 5.5 and 6.0, soluble Al is not likely to be a significant problem

— When the soil pH is above 6.0, soluble Al is almost certainly not a problem.

— Lime is the solution to excess soluble Al in the topsoil

— Gypsum may be needed to correct excess soluble Al in the subsoil

Hope that’s helpful – I learned something so… thanks!   The genetic modification to withstand Aluminum is probably done to keep an acid tolerant plant from surviving the low pH but stunting from Al+++ poisoning.

Won’t adding gypsum liberate

Won’t adding gypsum liberate toxic H2S as gas?

Why is aluminum present in off the scale amounts in the Mt. Shasta area?

When a hydro-geologist was shown the tests, he stated, “unless you live near an Alcoa Aluminum plant, there is no way these types of metals (barium has also been detected) should be showing up in your pond or rainwater samples, in any quantity.”  The Pit River sample tested at 4,610,000 ug/L, which is 4,610 times the MCL.

For any coincidence theorists

For any coincidence theorists out there, here is the patent for the aluminum aerial spraying…

All in the name of the global warming, global cooling,climate change ,global climate disruption or whatever they call it now fraud.

I followed this case for two

I followed this case for two years. This is backed up with facts. Bill HR 875  was introduced by Rosa DeLauro whose husband Stanley Greenburg works for Monsanto, the worlds largest herbicide company.  Since 2004 tests were conducted on high levels of aluminum in the soil.  Here is a lab report.

http://www.holmestead.ca/chemtrails/soiltest.html

Many different lab tests resulted in  high levels of unatural aluminum oxide and barium which are direct results from the chemtrails. My conclusion is that the levels are not natural but man made. Some agency is purposely putting this in the air.

Make sure to watch the new

Make sure to watch the new documentary What In The World Are They Spraying?which looks at the aluminum resistant Monsanto seeds, and the dramatically increased levels of aluminum and other toxic materials in such “pristine” ecosystems as the Mt. Shasta area.

However that is just

However that is just bullsh-it, the real reason is that the aluminum gets into the environment and it is weaking the plants and in 2-4 years if we want food we will have to buy GMO seeds that are . . . . (of course) aluminum resistant. The data and evidence is all there, from the plants getting sick/weaker, to the monsanto aluminum resistant biotech seeds. Aluminum Foil

In the end government is probably the only thing between us and Monsanto that prevents them from actually doing something like destroying seed banks of ancient non-gmo plant varieties.

Speaking of seed banks, I find it interesting that Bill Gates is investing tens of his millions along with the Rockefeller Foundation, Monsanto Corporation, Syngenta Foundation and the Government of Norway, among others, in what is called the ‘doomsday seed bank.’ Officially the project is named the Svalbard Global Seed Vaulton the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, part of the Svalbard island group.

More on Mr. Gates:

Amidst revelations in this weekend’s (May 24th) London Times newspaper that a team of scientists and engineers funded by billionaire Bill Gates are planning to carry out a 10,000 square kilometer field trial of controversial “cloud-whitening” technology, over one hundred civil society groups are urging governments meeting on biological diversity in Nairobi to stop risky geoengineering experiments now. Geoengineering refers to large-scale technological schemes to intentionally alter the planet’s systems as a quick fix for climate change.
