February 3, 2014 – An incredible 80% of the world’s fish stocks are now over-exploited or fished right up to their limit.

May 10, 2017 – Record quarter for Marine Harvest Scotland

17,772 tonnes gutted weight were harvested, up from 12,620 in the same quarter last year. (up 40% -ed). The higher harvest volumes were due to higher average weight and hence more biomass in sea at the start of the year, combined with strong production and improved fish health.

It’s May, 2017, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Since that statement directly refutes our State Religion, which holds that “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind”, I’ve included multiple recent examples below to support it.

The clam quote up at the top of this post is a classic example of the negative hedge included to blunt positive news, but it’s done so here in a way that’s bizarre and illogical. If you run a business, you want sales and profits to increase, and they’ve done so at the seafood company because of a record clam harvest. But the reporter had to shrill “hit with high clam inventories” because they’re following a formula.

Way back in this thread somewhere, I’ve got a post with dozens of such headlines, and I may go grab it and revive it after this. There’s another one right here in this post: “Corn Futures Dropas U.S. Farmers Start Harvesting Record Crop”.

Remember, the Orthodoxy states the reporters wrote both of those headlines that way “because bad news sells.” But don’t you think it’s time to grow up and admit that the paper with the headline “Record 2016 Clam Harvest Drives Sales, Profit Increase for Clearwater” would sell just as well or better than the one with the fake, bizarre, illogical negativity thrown in?
A common rebuttal I’m met with when I tell people things like “South Africa’s 2017 maize crop seen almost doubling to record harvest”, below, is that it’s being driven by improved yields from GMO crops. In the story below, the doubled South African corn harvest, whether GMO or no, is clearly attributed to plentiful rainfall.

It’s my hope that seeing things like the record clam and turkey harvests in among the agriculture records below will shake the mind free from the GMO canard. With the record Marine harvest in Scotland underscoring my point even further. Yes, there are examples of incrementally-larger harvests driven by more-productive GMO crops – but that doesn’t explain the larger phenomenon I’m discussing and documenting here on an ongoing basis.
Following the strict rules of the controlled press, the article from Scotland prints the numbers, but won’t give you the percentage of the year-over-year increase. So I had to do the math. It’s 40% higher than the same quarter last year. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins, and that’s obviously an epochal increase, a transformation.

To forestall the subconscious mind’s immediate response of “yeah, but that’s because they’re strip-mining the sea!”, I’ll note the the record harvest was driven by “higher average weight” and “improved fish health”. And even that explanation is a hedge, as, obviously, it’s not that it’s the exact same number of fish, only 40% fatter. But, rather, there are a lot more fish, and those fish are also larger, and healthier. It’s just that the reporter is forbidden by the Orthodoxy from saying “huge increases in fish population”, because that would go seriously off-message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all.

Be assured, the NPR-addicted would and will respond to such an example with “yeah, but that’s just one of the boom-bust cycles that are being driven by climate change!” Which is why I don’t even talk to many people about these things, but rather document it here for the record. They’ve been given that plausible-deniability excuse, and have accepted it, and it becomes truth to them. It’s not science, it’s a religion.

But whatever is causing clams to boom in Canada, and marine life to thrive in in Scotland, and Turkeys to flourish in Indiana, and all these record crop harvests, has been going on for about three or four years, now, and isn’t stopping.
And the fact that no one talks about it except a guy on an Obscure Internet Forum does not change that fact.

Do you think no one will ever talk about it, ever? That doesn’t ring true to me. Programming, conditioning are strong things, but not eternal things. We’ve all awakened and grown in significant ways over our lives, grown beyond things. We’ve done it as a species, with slavery, with women not being allowed to vote, with three-Martini-lunches, to name only three of many.

And that’s what’s going to happen here, and I think it’s going to be sooner than later.
In the meantime, be glad you are ahead of the curve, and revel in the great, epochal positive changes that are underway at every level of our reality:

April 23, 2017 – Morocco predicts near-record cereal harvest in 2017

May 3, 2017 – Bunge adjusts growth outlook following record harvest

The company reported segment volumes of 35mn metric tons during the first quarter of 2017, a 7pc rise from the previous year following a record soybean and corn harvest in South America.

May 10, 2017 – Record quarter for Marine Harvest Scotland

The company’s Q1 report, which was published today, reveals that 17,772 tonnes gutted weight were harvested, up from 12,620 (up 40% -ed) in the same quarter last year, while the EBIT/kg was €3.12, up from €0.68

The higher harvest volumes were due to higher average weight and hence more biomass in sea at the start of the year, combined with strong production and improved fish health.
