What does sustainability mean? The dictionary defines this word as:
A contradiction in definitions when applied in real life. From the environment activists’ point of view, the definition is in the eye of the beholder. In most cases, the eye of the misinformed and corrupt.
How to balance the “living” environment, while creating a living environment for humans, is a sustainable living goal. From the prospect of human record, there always has been a living symbiosis between humans and their environment.
It is a fact that humans have damaged their living environment, but so has Mother Nature.
Love Canal is probably one of the worst human made stories in US history, here’s a link to a Time Movizine story. However, Mother Nature every year burns, floods and blows destruction across the land also. But you can’t control Mother Nature, regardless if people want to blame humans for changing the climate. As I said, it is a symbiosis relationship with a difference. Humans are supposed to reason.
It’s one of those words using in phrases that are overused and have lost its meaning. It’s a largely a misused word, as a statement to mean something that it really isn’t! When used, it evokes some emotional comfort that it’s a continuation … of something. Just what is it? Too often the word is conflated into some feel good statement that has no tangential meaning!
Planetary Husbandry! It’s not just because we have been formed in the image of our creator, but we’ve been given the gifts of: free thought, independence and liberty. We’ve reached out to the stars and touched them, but we cannot accept technology without progressivism. That is destructive!
The left is actually against science. They are not interested in what “sustainability” means. The left has successfully made science a crime. It’s like the Darwin controversy all over again. A colossal lie, for the greater cause, the truth is now illegal. Science is now judged by the religious zealots of environmentalism. Galileo once felt the sting of such religious bigotry, and we are seeing this today on Hawai’i Island with the passing of Bill 113.
All products; living and artificial, use fuel and food, as a means to survive. It makes you wonder if the possibility of humans living on another planets, other than Earth, and being able to do interplanetary travel, if possible.
But what If humans are bonded to the planet like other creatures that live here? Then, can they survive long term away from the planet? How would they survive without the basics of life?
So why wouldn’t anyone not want to take care of that relationship and improve upon it?
With Humans, comes the ability to reason. However; like the weather, reason can have good days and bad days. Today is one of those bad days. When reason and common sense are cast aside for a Progressive ideology. The political philosophy of big government knows best; and therefore shall dictate what, how, where and who, shall either reap the benefits, or receive their disdain in the form of punitive laws.
After Mayor Kenoi signed Bill 113 into law, it abruptly changed the farming landscape of the Big Island. The Bill’s author, Margaret Willie, tries to explain it as a victory against “seemingly all-powerful multinational corporations”.
As Farmer/Business owner Richard Ha of Hamakua Springs Farms explains;
I ask; “Once you ruin the system, how do you put it back together?” I’ve likened this obviously terrible law to Obamacare. A terrible law that Americans are starting to feel the reality of its consequences. Because it brings reality to what happens when electing politicians with an agenda to hurt people for their definition of the “common good!” Those flowery words used to describe sustainability, like social justice and organic, these things, are not like the other.
“What about the rubbah slippah folks?” Richard Ha asked? Indeed, what about low income folks? Especially, the ones employed by farmers? What about the farmers that lease lands to farm? Will they continue their leases or decide to leave?
Big Island Video News reports: Richard Ha, of Hamakua Spring Farms responds. Go to time mark 3:05.
Margaret Willie’s Bill 113 does address those concerns, and she doesn’t care in the least for these people that will be affected by her horrific law. Neither do her supporters of Bill 113, they are of little consequence to the “common good”. Thus breaking the symbiosis bond between Human and the Planet. Bill 113 doesn’t hurt any of Margaret Willie’s evil corporations that she worries about, but the Bill will have an impact on Big Island Farmers. It will tear families, generations of island families, from their livelihood. But it’s all for the “common good”, you must remember that. Read her reasons for the law:
Thank you Mayor Billy Kenoi for signing Bill 113. Together we can, and today together we did, take an important step towards preserving and protecting our precious island — malama aina.
And as we share a common destiny, thanks to all who participated in this important island-wide conversation — regardless of the position taken.
These past six months, by way of the Bill 113 council legislation, we together took a big step towards sculpting our island’s future.
We are clearly moving in the direction of environmentally sensitive community-based farming with respect for the health of our soil and with respect for our watersheds and coastal waters, in a way that is pono and respectful of each other.
Our federal and state government officials have been lax. In 1992 our federal government established the absurd agricultural policy that GMO foods and crops are “substantially equivalent” to the corresponding non-GMO crops.
The result was no requirement of any pre-market health studies for GMO crops and foods.
Likewise there has been no requirement to assess the adverse impacts of the cultivation of GMOs on the health of neighboring property owners and on the health of our people especially those most vulnerable — the keiki now and those of future generations.
And to date our state legislators have followed the lead of their federal counterparts, and have not regulated these ag-chemical GMO corporations.
And instead our state government has catered to these seemingly all-powerful multinational corporations.
For this reason the last defense here and around the country, has been that of municipalities and counties taking a stand, based on the precautionary principle, to protect their people and their lands from becoming just one more GMO industry dominated location.
For these reasons our state legislators should take heed of the Kauai and Hawaii county legislation addressing the cultivation of GMO crops and related toxic pesticides.
Rather than seeking to undermine these neighbor island efforts, our state should set an example by embracing the wisdom and farsightedness of these efforts.
About the author: Margaret Wille is a Hawaii County Councilwoman for Council District 9, which consists of North and South Kohala.
Notice the veiled threat towards the State at the end…. that is the Progressive way, govern through threats and intimidation.
Bill 113 is an intended consequence. Yes, Intended! Much like Obamacare is an intended law to hurt people. Like Obamacare, the rich; those individuals and corporations, the law is supposed to target, will not be affected by the law. The rich can afford it. However, the consequences of the law has a “trickle down” effect. The middle class and low income people get hurt the hardest with higher prices and loss of income. Trickle Down economics works both ways. It can either benefit the people, or harm people. That’s why you do and economic impact studies to understand the economic consequences of such laws like Bill 113.
The callousness of these politicians will eventually catchup with their base that voted for them into power in the first place, but not before the damage is done. What to do till then?
Do not make the mistake in believing that these type of laws are anything less than democracy by mob rules. The first part of any propaganda campaign is to tell a lie: ’A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.’ Quoting Winston Churchill
Weaving this law, Bill 113, as stated by the laws author; is not to promote organic farming, not to promote economic growth, and not to prevent GMO products from entering the island. The bill does none of that, instead the bill makes farmers into criminals. The Bill picks winners and punishes others with fines and jail time. The bill specifically targets against Farmers using technology to produce a safe food product, and the bill favors farmers using organic techniques. Those technologies have a price delta at the grocery store. Organics are much more expensive, 2 to 3 times, more expensive than non-organic produce. Guess who that impacts the most?
Effectively, a politician has used the laws to manipulate the free markets markets to favor a more expensive minority of the farming community. The Organics! And they criminalized other farmers using tried and true, safe and effective, inexpensive and high yielding technology. It was all done on a lie. A lie that says, tried and true farming is dangerous because it uses GMO and pesticide technology. Questionable reasoning? Or a deliberate effort to destroy a local industry? Sustainable?
It was never about GMO’s, which is a distraction away from the real subject of this law, corporate hatred. It’s in author’s own remarks which she accuses the Federal government of conspiring with mega-food corporations to poison people. I still don’t understand this logic by these people. I’ve lived around the world and seen how other countries food production and quality control works. Nothing compares to how rigorously the regulations on food production, exportation and importation works on these islands. It is fanatical!
That doesn’t matter anymore, because of faux environ-champions of the world, will see to it that your rights to a free planet are restricted, and regulated, to the point of economic oblivion. How does this this meet the standard definition of sustainability? How does this help sustain a fragile economy?
I had always thought the idea of sustainability was to maintain the environment and grow the economy! The land takes care of the people, and the people take care of the land. That has never changed until now. Bill 113 does change the economics of the Big Island’s Farming economy. It seems neither the Mayor, the Council, nor the Bill’s supporters, cared to examine the economic impact of Bill 113.
The Progressive philosophy of the common good, selectively discriminates against anything that does not conform to its vision of a global utopia. I call it the “Walt Disney” view of the world where people’s understanding of where vegetables come from is a grocery store!
Those that are like the celebrity 1%’er’s, the Hollywood types, that lend their socialist rich loud mouth voice into places where they don’t belong. They are not from here and they are not farmers. Oh sure, they might have a plot of land with some vegetables growing, but are they running a business to sell their vegetables? No, they are not farmers, and they never will be.
It’s like when government entities make decisions about your healthcare, putting themselves between you and your doctor. So why would anyone want to allow the government to get between you and your grocer or farmer? The government assumes that you, the consumer, are at risk by the farmers products.
That’s why we have a FDA, a USDA, an EPA and a host of other Federal government protections regarding the food production and safety. Now add more layers of regulations by the State and County and you have a tightly coupled set of protections for food safety. This, despite the huge cost of maintaining these regulations, food safety has been sustainable up until now. Just busted up a bit by government over-regulations.
The Bill’s author states in her reason that the government has an “absurd agricultural policy that GMO foods and crops are “substantially equivalent” to the corresponding non-GMO crops.”
Then she goes on to make more absurd claims about the health consequences by lack of any regulations. Which simply is not true! It’s a lie! And like Obama lied about Obamacare, this is also a law of consequences which will impact every island resident. I suspect the author, and like her followers of this misguided law, do still consider Obamacare the promise of free healthcare, as it was always touted to be. But we now know that was also a lie. It goes back to the sustainability model, it neither benefits the planet, nor its human inhabitants.
As I posted before, the Progressive does not consider humans as a part of the Sustainability equation. Therefore, the value placed on the human’s life and wellbeing is not in consideration. The whole question of a sustainable lifestyle does, and should, include a comfortable standard of living. However, that quality of life will be in jeopardy because of Bill 113. It’s punishing the people of these islands because some people don’t like corporations, so everyone must suffer because of it.
Equality and Social Justice is the Progressive platform. So if it must be, then its equal suffering for all, it shall be! It’s social engineering madness which uses fear and loathing as the churn to rancid butter. The poison butter used to spread onto baked breads using GMO grains and flour imported into the islands. The same GMO grown vegetables which will imported into the islands and lining the shelves of the big box stores. Volume will bring lower prices than the local organic grower can compete with. That’s just simple economics. So change the laws to punish the farmer that uses the evil corporate products to make a living for themselves. That’s the answer! That will show those evil corporations whose boss!
Exasperating prices at the grocery stores will have negative impact upon consumers and farmers alike. This hardly creates a sustainable economy. When the tools that other farmers use elsewhere, are prohibited for use here on this island, then that is an economic disadvantage to the local farmer. The reasons given against the use GMO products have never been proven. Safety in both the end product and the production has always been paramount within the farming community. By taking choices away from the farmer trying to produce a product that is proven to be safe, is counter intuitive.
It seems ever since the Progressive left has gained power, in almost all levels of government; Federal, State and county, the end result has been a struggling economy and more nanny state regulations. That’s what accompanies the Progressive model of government. I call it mob justice because it doesn’t employ common sense logic. It does, however, use fear, uncertainty and doubt, to craft legislation that soothes the anger of a deliberately misinformed electorate.
“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction” - Newton Law of Motion also applies to how fairly the government works for its people. As we wait to see what the eventual outcome of Bill 113 actions will be, we can be certain of the reaction. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to predict what the outcome will be.
Farsightedness, is not a term I would use to describe Bill 113. Because if it was, it would have never passed. Common sense would have prevailed, but it seems that crop is also low on cultivation these days.
Big Mahalo’s to Chair J Yoshimoto, Dennis “Fresh”Onishi, and Greggor Ilagan for voting “NO” against this travesty of justice. We farmers appreciate your support and representation. Mahalo!
The fourth annual Hawai’i honey festival took place in Hilo at the Nani Mau Gardens resort area. Honey makers and bee keepers demonstrated their products. It was a resounding success! The following is a pictorial blog post of the event, here’s a link to the flyer here!
With over 100 different honey varieties to sample, it was hard to pick a sweet winner!
Every honey variety had a label. There were dark honeys and light honeys. Subtle flavors with bold sweetness.
Vendors booths were set up selling honey and bee keeping knowledge.
The rules are simple.
Besides all the delicious honey was plenty of food and drink made with honey based recipes.
Great food and great music. Master Slack Key guitarist Cyril Pahinui dazzled the audience and inspired impromptu Hula dancing.
So many flavors
Entertainment for everyone including the keiki’s (children)
So many different colors of honey. From very light to very dark. Each with floral smells and tastes.
The organizers of this event really have to be congratulated. There was a great turn out of people. It was nice to see the Nani Mau Gardens reopening again after a long absents. The place is a little known jewel in the Pana’ewa Hawaiian homelands section of Hilo.
We would have never been aware of the event if it weren’t for Cyril Pahinui’s Facebook post advertising the event. Let’s hope for more events like this at the Nani Mau Gardens.
If this sounds like some nightmarish Hollywood movie, it’s not! This scene has played out many times before on farms on the Mainland USA! It is exactly what will happen now that Hawai’i Council has gotten its way to criminalized farming on the Big Island of Hawai’i.
BIG ISLAND CHRONICLE – GMO prohibition Bill 113 passed out of the Public Safety and Mass Transit Committee on Oct. 1, with a vote of 6 – 2 and a positive recommendation to the Hawaii County Council.
Centuries of agriculture triumphs are now boiled down into a false claim that farmers are poisoning the food supply we rely on to feed ourselves. GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms) have increasingly come under attack by activists convinced that there’s something wrong with the technology. The fear factor has grown to the point where all logic and reason is abandoned. Evidence that proves the safety of GMO foods is summarily dismissed. Accusations of being a corporate insider stooge working for some Argo corporation gets throw around like the race card does during Presidential elections. A few years ago the oil industry was accused of destroying the planet with oil; now it’s agriculture turn.
Hawai’i council has held a number of hearings on GMO products bringing in subject matter experts, However, it was apparent that some members of Hawai’i council had already made up their minds, irregardless of the experts testimony. Anti-GMO council members allowed testimony of experts with questionable credibility. Local farmers tried to work with the council, but in the end, the farmers lost and so do we the consumers. Farmers petitioned for help from their State Representatives, only to be ignored. Choice, was taken away and replaced with intolerance of farmers. Everyone loses in this fight, there are no winners. In the end, the activists have made the cost of living on Hawai’i Nei more expensive. The future looks uncertain and bleak.
It’s gotten to the point where misinformation is so prevalent in public discourse, that civility has lost all relevancy. Eco-terrorism and threats of violence by these activists are becoming all too commonplace.
Hawai’i councilperson Margret Willie, is the author of the bill 113 that passed and will eventually outlaw farming on the Big Island of Hawai’i. It’s interesting to note the thought processes of Ms. Willie. Reading her blog reveals who she is and what she believes in. It’s quite chilling when you learn that she considers humans are the real pests on this planet. Excerpt:
By overpopulating the earth we are destroying the viability of our habitat, not just for our own species but for most other species as well – save perhaps for cockroaches. Why are we not passing legislation to encourage birth control and provide incentives for birth control initiatives in developing countries in all nations.? Why do we give tax credits to parents with more children rather than expecting those with larger families to pay higher taxes? It is as if no one sees the inherent link between excess population and the climate change crisis.
Get that? People are the problem. We must consider people as cockroaches destroying the planet. This is a glimpse into the black heart of a intolerant activist. She’s got her little slice of paradise, and no one else deserves the same opportunity. This is the same thinking as former Hawai’i councilperson Pete Hoffmann, who is responsible for the plastic bag ban on Hawai’i Island a few years ago. These activists reason they are far superior and enlightened than you are and others; therefore they can dictate what you can eat, what you can drive, where you can live, and how you can build your house.
Why feed the world with the wonders of technology? Developing crops that are drought, disease and insect resistant will now be outlawed by the actions of the ignorant few on Hawai’i Council. It’s like killing the Golden Goose.
Who doesn’t want their food to be safe? The water we drink and the air we breathe; we all want to be safe from toxins and poisons. There’s be a lot of talk about GMO’s and how safe, or dangerous, GMO products are. Anyone that has spent any time overseas living in different countries will know how different the quality of food is. In some countries, you take your life into your hands. There is no quality control to check for the safety of food, GMO or otherwise. Some countries have no refrigeration, clean water or food quality control. See China’s scandals for example.
What’s puzzling to me is how easily people believe in anything they are told. Remember Global Warming, or what’s now being called Climate change? It is a perfect example of how a terrible a hoax runs out of control. It doesn’t matter whether the science is either wrong, falsified, or just made up; people are being convinced that their food is toxic!
Hawai’i County Council and Kaua’i council are both proposing laws to ban all GMO testing, growing and GMO production. Additionally, the legislation includes banning pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, that farmers commonly use to protect their crops from damage. Those lawmakers proposing these laws claim that farming can be done using organic methods. Methods that are equally as toxic if not done correctly.
Of course, none of these lawmakers are farmers. They’ve never picked up a shovel, except at a ground breaking ceremony, and gotten their hands dirty working the soil. These people haven’t a clue how farming works. At best they may have planted a potted plant from the Home Depot store, but that’s the extent of their farming knowledge. Yet, they think they know what’s best for the people of these islands. C.S. Lewis called these activists ‘Moral Busybodies’. They really believe they are doing good by taking people’s freedoms away. It’s the tyranny of the socialist progressive mentality.
Public hearings are taking place to review the language of the laws. Civility all but broke down with the GMO activists shouting down the farmers. The hostility demonstrated by the anti-GMO activists grew to the point of violence. When the activists cannot prove their claims, they resort to name calling and violence. Eco-terrorism has the farming communities frightened that they may become the next targets of these vandals, just by suspecting GMO crops are on their farms. Living in terror by trying to make an honest living is not the Aloha spirit.
On the Big Island of Hawai’i, in the lower Puna district where I live, Papaya farmer’s crops were destroyed by eco-terrorists. Not once, but several times, and the criminal vandals have never been caught. Some council members have turned a blind eye towards the eco-terrorists calling their actions, ‘unfortunate‘. Basically, callously ignoring the economic impact to the community and to the farmers.
A lot of people will lose their jobs, their farms and their livelihood. The cost of food will increase because those lost local products will need to be shipped into the island. The very same GMO produce grown elsewhere, but banned here. More people will have to rely on government assistance. The cost of living, as high as it is, will get higher.
I believe it is a deliberate and concerted effort, by some members of Hawai’i council to get rid of certain “elements” from the Island. Those elements are the low income families, farmers and rural land owners that they don’t like. They are in the way of progress and development. Big business opportunities that some council members can economically enrich themselves with at the expense of local people. Look at the people in Congress that have profited from their office! The trickle down theory applies to corruption also.
GMO products are already strictly regulated by government agencies: FDA, USDA, EPA and the CDC, all monitor and routinely test GMO products for safety. The use of chemicals and science is closely scrutinized, more so than organic farming techniques are. Some organic methods can be very toxic, but very little is either known to the public about the risks of organic farming. You are more likely to contract hepatitis and rat lung disease from organic farming, than be poisoned by GMO foods.
It is the definition of the term ‘Genetically Modified Organism’, that is probably the most misunderstood part of the whole argument. Genetic manipulation has been a common practice since the dawn of agriculture. Plants, animals and even humans, have been genetically modified over the centuries. Science has increased food production and safety, but you cannot convince activists with facts, they don’t want to hear it!
In the case of the Hawaiian Papaya, a virus called the ‘Ring Spot Virus’ was threatening to destroy the Papaya industry on the Big Island. The University of Hawai’i at Hilo commissioned scientists to try and save the Papaya industry. They succeeded by identifying the ‘Ring Spot Virus’ and creating a vaccination to halt the spread of the disease. Just like a doctor gives humans a flu shot, penicillin, and vaccinations against deadly diseases. It was that simple.
I’m old enough to remember the scourge of polio, measles, whooping cough and other diseases that either killed or disabled children. However, many people, in particular movie stars and other public figures, have come out against vaccinations. They believe vaccinations are causing other problems like autism and birth defects. These celebrities have encouraged the low information voter to refuse to vaccinate their children from these diseases. A terribly naive and dangerous thing to do to either their children, or to anyone else! Although, these activists have no evidence to prove their claims that vaccinations are harmful, people have decided to believe their false claims anyway. Blindly!
Loud mouth haole, washed up television actress, and unfortunate island resident, Rosanne Barr, has come out and advocated for violence against farmers and anyone that supports GMO science in farming. She is an admitted communist and a green party member. She openly advocates for the murder of conservatives, and because she has celebrity status; she has a public bully pulpit to preach hate from. That’s right, a Bully Pulpit! A waste of Aloha!
The GMO Scare – Corporate Hatred and scare tactics. Eco-Terrorism. Anti-Capitalism hatred permeates the rhetoric, but is there any truth to the claims of people being poisoned? Emotionally driven charges with claims of farmers working outside the realm of nature’s rules. Activists claims of corporations like Monsanto are poisoning the food supply haven’t been substantiated. Activists arguments are never about the food, it’s always about the business model.
The argument by some is that we need to know what’s in our food, so we need labeling. That has been a favorite activist demand. Fine, I get that! I need to know what’s in the food I consume for health reasons. The amount of sodium, cholesterol and fat are things my doctor warns me about. It’s funny because just about every packaged food product has some GMO already in it. GMO Corn, soybeans and other plants have been consumed for decades with no ill effects. Why is it only now that GMO is suddenly being demonized? Answer: people are misinformed about what the benefits of what GMO technology brings to farming, and the delivery of safe nutritious food. But there is this seething hatred of corporations by these activists. Environmental activists groups, you all know who they are; have brought nuisance lawsuits against farmers. Corporations have teamed with these activists to shut out small business farmers from competing. That’s part of the problem here in Hawai’i also. It is a deliberate effort to drive the local farmer out of business.
Some Foreign countries sponsor some of the activist hatred because these are US based corporations. Agenda 21, and United Nations countries, that have a profound hatred for the United States and US Corporations, are behind most of these activists. You hear of countries banning Monsanto products, not because there’s anything wrong with the technology, but because it wasn’t invented there. Follow the money behind the science.
There is more GMO in foods we consume today than anyone realizes, and we’ve been eating it for decades without any harmful effects. I grew up eating GMO foods, and drinking fluoridated water, and never had any ill effects. I still have all my teeth!
We live longer. We are healthier. We now eat better and safer than we ever have in history. 100 years ago, in 1913, the industrial age in America was in full gear. Along the way there were mistakes made, and they were corrected. Best practices eventually led to the quality of life we enjoy today. There are more people living today because of food technology. We all live a better quality of life than those that live elsewhere in the world; like Africa, China and parts of the former Soviet Union. Their food quality control isn’t a good as ours; and yet there are those with this romantic notion that being closer to the Earth, the Planet, and the ground; that they are willing to bury themselves in their own grave of ignorance.
But because of an innate fear of what people don’t understand, they have taken out their pitch forks and torches to battle the Frankenfruit monster. They don’t care that they are destroying their future, their environment and our Planet.
If only stupidity had a label.
Good morning in Hilo! Went driving through town today for no particular reason.
The Sun had been up for about an hour. It was already becoming a beautiful day.
Took in a quick dip in the ocean before returning back into town.
Went to the Prince Kuhio Mall to do some shopping where I took this picture of Mauna Kea obscured by the clouds.
Later on in the day as the Sun pasted overhead, I took this picture of the Sun behind a small patch of clouds.
Overall, a pleasant day in paradise!
My polling (pooling) place was located at Kea’au High School.
I really needed to challenge my confidence with this sign.
Hand(y)cap or kneecapped? I can speak Hawaiian pigeon and ‘Ōlelo (Hawaiian Language), but this is a high school. A official polling place where your ballot is read by an electronic reader. I’m sorta thinking, or rather doubting, if I am in the wrong place and this is a joke. I’m thinking Code Pink group-think. But Noooo!
We followed the arrows till we found the polling location, signed the registrar with our signatures, PRODUCED A PHOTO ID, and proceed to cast our ballots. Our Primary system allows us to vote one party only : Republican or Socialist Democrat. Want to learn more, click here.
A visit to the Pana’ewa Zoo. Located just south of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawai’i, a wonderful place to visit.
The entrance to the zoo is lined with Royal Palm trees. The zoo is free and does accept donations.
We always give five or ten dollars to the zoo.
A map of the zoo grounds as you enter shows the exhibit areas.
Exhibit cages hold a variety of animals and birds.
This Namaste, a white Bengal tiger that is a favorite attraction at the zoo.
