“The Hope Farm Bird Index has more than trebled between 2000 and 2017. Butterfly numbers on the farm have also increased by 213 percent.”

It’s October, 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 appended a current news story below to support it.

Here’s a sentence from the article:

“The Hope Farm Bird Index has more than trebled between 2000 and 2017. Butterfly numbers on the farm have also increased by 213 percent.”

Now let’s read the sentence that comes immediately after that one:

But during the same period the Farmland Bird Index nationally has decreased.”

Can you see how they follow the specific good news with a negative assertion that’s more general, vague?

They repeat the tactic again, almost immediately:

“Wildlife monitoring at the RSPB’s nature friendly demonstration farm in Cambridgeshire has revealed record numbers of breeding farmland birds and butterflies this summer. Numbers of breeding farmland birds have more than trebled in the 17 years since the RSPB started managing Hope Farm in 2000, against a background decline in farmland bird species nationally.”

Repeating the Black Magic spell twice in a row, to set it into your subconscious…give the specific good news, then hedge with general bad news.

It’s instructive, in that it shows not only that great, epochal positive changes are occurring at every level of our reality, but also that the Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments are wholly-controlled-and-coopted, from the top, and are lying to us about basically everything, including bird numbers in Britain.

I think even grade schoolers reading the article below would get the picture, but this is not a matter of intellect, but rather of programming, of a certain subset of the populace being duped by a snake-oil religion that is masquerading as a scientific effort.

The story tries to convince you that the booming, burgeoning birds and butterflies are a local phenomenon, caused by a friendly farm here, and a friendly farm, there. They try, at all costs, to keep you from connecting the dots, of seeing that birds and butterflies are rebounding and burgeoning all over the globe, at the same time.

That’s what this thread is documenting.

But these are Going Out of Business metrics for the bad guys. They’re trying to hold back the truth with a lie, and that’s not a very good long term tactic.

We’ve already turned the corner. Spread the word, won’t you?

And, if you haven’t already done so, please consider distributing simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices where you live and work today, or sponsor a gifter, perhaps even through a vehicle such as this forum.

 

 

 

October 16, 2017 – U.K. – Record numbers of birds and butterflies reap rewards of nature friendly farming

The Hope Farm Bird Index has more than trebled between 2000 and 2017. Butterfly numbers on the farm have also increased by 213 percent.

But during the same period the Farmland Bird Index nationally has decreased.

Wildlife monitoring at the RSPB’s nature friendly demonstration farm in Cambridgeshire has revealed record numbers of breeding farmland birds and butterflies this summer.

Numbers of breeding farmland birds have more than trebled in the 17 years since the RSPB started managing Hope Farm in 2000, against a background decline in farmland bird species nationally.

Threatened ‘Red List’ farmland birds such as linnet and skylark, which nationally have declined by more than 50 percent, have increased more than threefold at Hope Farm, while numbers of yellowhammers have doubled.

Phenomenal increase

Several species that were completely absent in 2000 have started breeding on farm, including grey partridge, lapwing and corn bunting.

Butterflies too are thriving at Hope Farm, with numbers of 24 species of the wider British countryside up 213% in 2017 compared with 2001.

Derek Gruar, a RSPB senior research assistant, has been responsible for monitoring breeding bird and butterfly numbers at Hope Farm since 2009.
He said: “Every summer we survey breeding farmland birds and butterflies on the farm to see how their numbers are changing.

“The increase in numbers in such a relatively short space of time is phenomenal when you consider the trends in these species nationally. The flip side of that of course is that something is clearly amiss in the wider landscape for these species to be declining in the UK.”

Hope Farm is not so different from a lot of other small arable farms in lowland England.

Just 10 percent of the croppable land on the 180 hectare farm is managed for wildlife, with the help of agri-environment schemes that support farmers to manage land to deliver environmental benefits. The other 90 percent grows commercial cereal crops such as wheat, barley and oilseed rape.

Simple measures like having wildflower margins around fields, sowing ‘bird cover’ to provide food for seed-eating birds, and allowing hedgerows to grow thick and dense to create safe nesting habitat all help birds, butterflies and other wildlife on the farm.

Ian Dillon, the RSPB manager at Hope Farm, said: “It’s fantastic getting the results of the wildlife monitoring on the farm, as they show that what we’re doing here is working. We have been able to demonstrate that, with the help of agri-environment schemes, it is possible for farmland wildlife to thrive alongside profitable crop production on an arable farm.

The continuing decline in farmland bird numbers nationally though shows there is still more to do to make British farming sustainable for nature. Fortunately, we’re by no means alone in farming in a way that benefits wildlife, and if more farms keep adopting nature friendly practices, farmland wildlife will reap the rewards.”
