‘SMART OCEANS’: KILLING OUR SEAS TO SAVE THEM

Ever wondered why agriculture is slammed by governments while private jets, mega-yachts and space rockets are never mentioned?

Or why no-one demonises big emitters like the pharmaceutical industry, or the US military, whose emissions dwarf those of entire nations like Denmark and Portugal?

It’s called ‘Double Standards’ and the Green agenda is littered with them.

Take, for example, ‘Smart Oceans’ and the ‘Internet of Underwater Things” (IoUT).

For two decades, governments, NGOs, researchers, big tech, climate scientists and the military have been building a vast underwater ‘smart grid’, made up of subsea sensor networks, sonar wi-fi, GPS, Li-Fi, lasers, acoustic modems, remotely charged underwater drones and magnetic induction – aimed at strip-mining data from the world’s oceans.

Huge grid installations, resembling HAARP arrays, are positioned on the ocean floor transmitting horizontally and vertically to satellites which communicate with computer monitoring systems all over the world.

These new underwater modems are producing frequencies as powerful as 202 decibels, equivalent to 139 decibels on land. For comparison, noise levels above 85 decibels are regarded as harmful to humans while heavy rock concerts are around 120 decibels.

All done in the name of climate change, sea-level monitoring, pollution control, water treatment, species tracking, weather surveillance, wave science, coral reef harvesting, tectonic plate monitoring, navigation, rare earth mining and military communications.

This year’s Oceanology International Conference featured hundreds of thousands of tiny autonomous underwater drones working together like a Hive to carry out underwater surveillance activity.

The goal is to flood every corner of the world’s oceans with multiple configurations of sonar-delivered data and 5G enabled devices engaged in non-stop surveillance activities.

According to Dr Hyun-Cheol Song of Korea’s Electronic Materials Research Centre, who spoke at last year’s COP26:

“There is no-one counting the devastating impacts that will take place once the smart ocean is fully installed and operating.”

“Marine organisms are highly electrosensitive” she said.

“They use naturally occurring magnetic fields to navigate, orientate and sense prey, mates and predators”.  Magnetising their environment with 5G, wi-fi and sonar is clearly going to have an enormously destructive impact on them.

Then there are the studies showing how extremely low frequency and low intensity magnetic fields have adverse impacts on the water itself.

In particular low intensity magnetic fields were found to significantly reduce the oxygen and co2 levels in the water to “below the limit required to satisfy the needs of successful fish production as per ANZECC 2000”.

Could this be what’s really behind the problem of ‘oxygen depletion’ in our oceans?

Who knows?

UNESCO, WEF, WWF, Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd are all silent on the issue.

Like I said, double standards…

RARE EARTHS ARE THE “NEW OIL”

Russia and Ukraine combined are a treasure trove for all the raw materials the West desperately needs to power its planned digital and green revolution.

The breakaway territories of the Donbass contain abundant reserves of ‘new economy’ materials including lithium and titanium.

Everything from smart cities, the digital economy, Internet of Things, AI, renewables and the surveillance state relies on the West gaining unrestricted access to, and control over, the worldwide supply of rare earths.

Russia in particular is home to one of the biggest and richest rare-earth deposits in the world.

It could well be the biggest, given the full extent of Russia’s reserves has never been properly mapped or exploited.

The Ural mountains alone contain some of the most diverse polymetallic resources on the planet, including manganese, copper, zinc, high-grade nickel and neodymium.

Another of its vast repository of ‘new economy’ minerals is Siberia, which also contains one of the three biggest reserves of Niobium globally.

Niobium is used in everything from jet engines, rockets, beams/girders for buildings and oil/gas pipelines, to particle accelerators, MRI scanners and NMR equipment.

Russia also supplies most of the elements needed for making the world’s semiconductor chips, particularly C4F6, Neon and Palladium.

Neon is almost 100 percent sourced from Russia’s steel plants, while the country also supplies 45 percent of palladium globally.

According to TECHCET, “Russia is a crucial source of C4F6 which are indispensable for advanced node logic device etching and advanced lithography processes for chip production”.

C4F6 and Palladium are used to make permanent magnets, a key component of modern weapon systems and other military technology.

They are also key components in the production of EVs.

80 per cent of the world’s sapphire substrates are supplied by Russia.

These are thin plates of artificial stone used in opto- and micro-electronics, including every processor in the world – AMD and Intel included.

Another key ingredient for the West’s military-industrial and transportation capabilities is antimony.  It is used in everything from armour-piercing bullets to night vision goggles.

According to traders, much of the world’s supply of the rare earths on which the military-industrial complex depends, come from Russia.

The prices of all these elements are now skyrocketing and we are seeing a growing worldwide shortage of materials like steel, titanium, nickel and aluminium.

These are all materials needed to fill orders of countless downstream industries from aviation to shipbuilding.

Without them, the world’s manufacturing base will grind to a halt.

Rare earths ARE the “new oil”.

That’s why instead of “oil wars”, we will see more and more “rare earth wars”.

Welcome to the Fourth Industrial Revolution!

LET’S START A REVOLUTION ….

A number of countries worldwide, are saying their population could be facing severe food shortages and widespread hunger by the end of 2022.

Others are slapping export bans on fertilisers, fuel and food staples like wheat, potatoes and edible oil – all of which are in critically short supply.

In just the last few hours, there are reports of mass food recalls of peanut butter and hazelnut truffles in the US, along with many other foods containing those products.

Earlier today, the FDA also issued a massive recall of Smithfield’s bacon and around 185,610 pounds of RTE bacon – that’s over 90 tons of bacon products.

These moves follow a mass poultry cull and a rash of fires and explosions that have destroyed food processing plants and storage facilities across the US.

Even mainstream news outlets like Fox have started asking questions about the “odd string of coincidences” that have helped cripple the nation’s food supply.

As Tucker Carlson pointed out, over the past 6 months, there have been 17 incidents of fires and explosions, including two plane crashes – one into a  food processing plant and the other, a food storage facility.

Of course, mainstream news outlets like CNN have trotted out a conga-line of “experts” to explain to the silly ‘deplorables’ how all these were just “random occurrences”.

Whatever.  The fact remains that the world’s food situation is starting to look pretty dire.

I think it’s time the people started creating their own distributed food systems – so that we are not 100% reliant on those holding centralised control over our access to food.

Here in Queensland, we live in one of the most fertile regions in the country.  Absolutely anyone can grow anything.

I’ve already started mine.

Basil, coriander, garlic, parsley, chives, tomato, beans, beetroot, cabbage, cauliflower, potato, celery, cucumber, melons, lettuce, pumpkin and zucchini.

That’s just for starters.

We also need community gardens, aquaponics, rabbits, goats, chickens, ducks, quail, mushrooms, soil husbandry, dry farming and urban coops.

State and local authorities need to remove any restrictive regulations around home or community grown food production, to allow this to happen.

Churchill called them ‘Victory Gardens’.

I’m just saying, ‘Let’s Trust the Plant!

VICTORIA’S NEW AGRICULTURE BILL GIVES THE ANDREWS GOVERNMENT CONTROL OVER FOOD PRODUCTION AND ABOLISHES PROPERTY RIGHTS

Victoria’s farmers and other property owners are targeted under provisions of a dangerous new Bill that was debated in the State Legislature this week.

Called the ‘Agriculture Legislation Amendment Bill 2022, the Bill has bipartisan support from both Labor and Liberal MPs, despite the incredibly dangerous precedent it sets for Victorian farmers’ property rights.

It is all being done under the guise of ‘Biosecurity’.

The mainstream media has been preparing the way with endless ‘scare’ stories around various biosecurity threats in the State – the dangers of which are all very real, but which nobody in the media gave a damn about before.

But what the media, and the government, knows, is that anything that even pretends to address ‘biosecurity’ issues, is going to be a sure-fire vote-winner in the regions.

The Bill exploits this, but is a ‘Trojan horse’ for another agenda altogether.

One that will be far less beneficial for farmers and one, which they may not be fully aware of yet.

When you boil everything down, the State’s new Agriculture Bill basically gives the Government complete power and unfettered control over all forms of food production in Victoria.

Its agents will be invested with enormous powers allowing them to show up and enter any farm without notice or warrant.

They can do so whether you are there or not, and don’t even need to advise you of it afterwards.

Agents also don’t have to provide identification if requested to do so. The Bill specifically removes that right.

They can take samples from your property, remove plants or seize livestock – even kill them.

Other provisions include Beekeepers being forced to become ‘registered’, while all bees must be implanted with tiny micro-chips so they can be tracked.

Market meat vendors must become ‘accredited’, something that involves huge upfront and ongoing costs as well total loss of autonomy and control.

The Bill is a clear threat to Food Security in Australia, particularly when viewed in the context of global food shortages, which we are told are just around the corner.

Anyone who thinks I’m exaggerating the danger should take a look at yesterday’s news out of Northern Ireland.

Sheep farmers have been told that a million sheep must be culled in order to meet their government’s internationally-set emissions target.

There are also massive concerns around property rights generally.

There is nothing in the Bill’s wording restricting its new powers to farms.

This means government agents – let’s call them the Ag-Stasi – can also enter private homes, seize their pets – even kill them – and destroy homeowners’ vegetables gardens and fruit trees.

Exactly as is happening right now in China.

TWO CAPE YORK CATTLE STATIONS SNAPPED UP BY QUEENSLAND’S ‘GREEN GRABBING’ GOVERNMENT

The Queensland Government’s recent purchase of two existing pastoral leases north of Weipa, amounting to nearly 325,932 hectares of agricultural land, has led to calls for the buying program in Cape York to “stop”.

Many graziers say they are becoming fearful for the future of the cattle industry up North, as more and more large pastoral properties are being bought up by the Government.

Since 2007, the Queensland Government has bought more than a dozen pastoral properties in Cape York, including Kalinga, Crosbie, Strathmay, Killarney, Dixie and Wulpan Stations.

Bertiehaugh Station was bought by the Federal Government and renamed the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve.

All these stations have been permanently removed from Australia’s agricultural lands network and converted into national parks or wildlife reserves.

Now Bramwell and Richardson Stations have joined the list – the northern-most cattle enterprise in Queensland.

The buy-ups are impacting neighbouring stations and communities, as more money is ripped from town economies, along with countless jobs.

Many are suspicious that the government may be buying up land to gain carbon credits.  Bramwell Station, for example, came with a “carbon farming deal” in place.

Grazier Emma Jackson, who runs nearby Wolverton Station in Cape York, said the sale of Bramwell Station was very troubling.

“If the cattle stations continue to close down in Cape York, it will be … another nail in the coffin for the grazing industry” she told the Brisbane Times recently.

“The state government might buy the land, but they don’t invest money into it.  It’s not feasible or possible for them to manage it”.

“When you’re producing on the land, you know where every weed is, you do your fire management, you make a dollar and it goes straight back into the land”.

“There’s this perception that when you’re working the land in cattle or horticulture, you’re not working with the land, that you’re not doing the right thing and that’s simply not correct.”

Local graziers and communities are not being consulted or given a say over the government ‘buy-ups’.

While questions around the vital issue of our ‘food security’ or the impact on Queensland’s agricultural sector overall, go unanswered.

Bear in mind that this is productive farmland we are talking about – land that food producers could make good use of.

Land that is now lost to Queensland agriculture forever.

THIS IS ABOUT “LAND, MONEY AND RESOURCE CONTROL”, NOT ‘SAVING’ THE ENVIRONMENT

Queensland Environment Minister, Meaghan Scanlon, recently announced the government’s purchase of 35,300 hectares west of Townsville, to be added to Queensland’s ‘Protected Area’ estate.

‘Lakes Station’, is “a massive and stunningly beautiful grazing property” in North Queensland that was owned by the same family for generations.

Scanlon said she will be making a lot more purchases in the region this year, as part of the government’s efforts to ‘protect’ more than 17 percent of Queensland by 2030.

In 2020, the Government set aside $28 million to expand the State’s ‘protected areas’ and today, more than 14 million hectares across Queensland are protected in some way.

Last year, around 33,621 hectares of high value ‘conservation’ land was added to Queensland’s protected area network.

Altogether, the network currently ‘protects’ an area more than twice the size of Tasmania.

Most of this land was once fertile farming and agricultural land.

THESE LANDS HAVE NOW BEEN PUT OFF LIMITS TO ANY PRODUCTIVE USE, PERMANENTLY. 

How much the government paid for the property has not been disclosed, although it was revealed that $1.829 million came from the Wyss Foundation, set up by US billionaire Hansjorg Wyss.

Wyss is the former CEO of Synthes, a medical device manufacturer, specialising in medical implants and biomaterials.

In 2009, Synthes was charged with 52 felony for illegally experimenting on patients, three of whom died.

Wyss sold the company to Johnson & Johnson in 2012 for $20.2 billion and now focusses on his chain of billion dollar Foundations and Medical Institutes.

Interestingly, the Wyss Centre in Switzerland is developing a fully implantable brain-computer interface that directly detects brain signals and then wirelessly transmits them to a computer for decoding.

Wyss and fellow billionaires, Bezos and Bloomberg, have committed $5.5 billion to buying up ‘high value’ land worldwide.

Wyss alone has bought up 27 million acres of farming properties in the US and turned them into conservation areas.

In 2018 he bought 200,000 acres of farmland in Australia’s Murray Darling Basin to create a “protected zone”.

Clearly, the biggest threat the environment faces today, comes not from the people who live there, but from all these rich billionaires and their ‘dark money’ Foundations, looking to swoop in and buy up all the rights to it – financialising nature for profit and control.

As the head of Survival International said:

“Let’s not be fooled by the hype from the ‘conservation’ NGOs, UN and public-private funders.  This has nothing to do with climate change or protecting biodiversity – in fact it will only make them worse”.

“THIS IS ABOUT MONEY, LAND AND RESOURCE CONTROL AND AN ALL-OUT ASSAULT ON HUMAN DIVERSITY”.  

“THIS PLANNED DISPOSSESSION OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE RISKS ERADICATING HUMAN DIVERSITY AND SELF-SUFFICIENCY”.

THE PLAN TO SELL OFF AUSTRALIA’S NATURAL ASSETS & RESOURCES, UNDER THE GUISE OF ‘SAVING’ THEM

At COP26 last year, the Federal Environment Minister, Sussan Ley, signed Australia up to the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD).

This, she said, would unlock Australia’s “natural capital” investment potential through an improved measuring and reporting framework.

“Understanding the true value of our natural capital – our soils, water, oceans, biodiversity and spectacular landscapes – presents an enormous economic opportunity and a critical pathway for investment” Ley said.

The Morrison government’s new “Natural Capital: Unlocking Private Sector Investment” was also released at COP26.

The document outlines “key initiatives to support the creation of a new global asset class of environmental investment markets and to increase private investment in Australia’s Natural Capital”.

Of course, the ‘propaganda and spin’ fed to the public is that all these financial instruments have been created purely to “preserve and protect” Nature.

Don’t let them fool you again.

The only goal here is to ‘monetise’ nature, not to ‘save’ it.

The group behind the “Natural Capital Agenda” is the Intrinsic Exchange Group (IEG), which is made up of major investors like the Rockefeller Foundation and the Inter-American Development Bank.

According to IEG’s website:

“We are pioneering a new asset class based on natural assets and the mechanism to convert them to financial capital … they include biological systems that provide clean air, water, foods, medicines, stable climate, human health and societal potential”.

It begins with identifying a natural asset, such as a forest, agricultural field or lake, which is then assessed, quantified and valued using specific ‘measurement’ protocols.

The protocols were developed by the Capitals Coalition, which is partnered with the World Economic Forum, and various other mega multi-national corporations.

The newly created ’National Capital’ asset class allows specialised companies “to hold the rights to the ‘ecosystem services’ produced on a given chunk of land; services like carbon sequestration, sustainable agriculture or clean water”.

The ‘Natural Capital’ company then decides who has the rights to that natural asset’s productivity as well as the rights to decide how that natural asset is managed and governed.

According to IEG, the “capital potential” of “Nature’s Economy”, is worth over $US4 quadrillion.

They pretend that this massive extraction of profit from Nature will help “transition” the world economy to one that is ‘green and sustainable’.

Anyone who believes that, is delusional.

The only beneficiaries of this scam, will be the new owners of Mother Nature.

It will be they who get to dictate to the rest of us, what parts of Nature have value and which don’t.

And that’s the problem…

We are talking about a class of people who, as Oscar Wilde said, “know the price of everything, and the value of nothing”.
