It’s October 2018, 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 multiple recent news accounts below to support it.

The words “mystery“, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything.

That’s why an article below about the record plum harvest in Switzerland says “The fact that the yield was so very generous has surprised even the industry. We knew that the estimates were too low, but we would not have thought that we were this far off,”

And why the article continues “And there was another thing that was unusual this year: the plums were particularly large. “Never before have we had such large calibers in the first half of the harvest season like we did this year,”

Neither this article, nor any other featured below mention that they’re part of a larger, wider phenomenon. That’s a Propaganda technique called “compartmentalization

In the quotes I’ve pulled out up top, “the heatwave” is used to explain the phenomena, during what was largely a very cool summer in the U.K., and there’s a firm assertion that the weather “played havoc” with crops, when in fact crops of all kinds are booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in Britisher’s lifetimes, just like they are over in Europe, and in the U.S.

As George Orwell wrote in “1984“, “Doublethink lies at the very heart of Ingsoc, since the essential act of the Party is to use conscious deception while retaining the firmness of purpose that goes with complete honesty.”

It’s a technique that has worked throughout history. Right up until now, anyway.

I’ve decided I’m not going to stand for it, and that, further, that I’m going to speak out about it.

A record 13220 deer were harvested in 2017, according to preliminary … The 2017 harvest exceeded the 2016 tally by 971

(Uses the more-general numbers, vs. providing a specific percentage. As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda. So I had to do the math. It’s 7.9% above the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins.

There’s also no mention as to when the last record was set. That’s a pointed omission, and a standard protocol within the worldwide news blackout surrounding the subject. – ed)

September 10, 2018 – Canada – Organic food and beverages reach highest-ever market share and production capacity.

The Canada Organic Trade Association (COTA) is proud to announce during this Organic Week (Sept. 8-16) that the Canadian organic market share has reached 2.6% of grocery market sales for food and beverage (Nielsen data, 2017). This is a tremendous growth from 1.7% in 2012, highlighting a rapidly expanding industry that once was considered small and niche.  Consumer demand for organics is growing at an unprecedented pace, now allowing organic to hold the title of the fastest growing sector in Canadian agriculture.  Canada also has the fifth largest consumer market worldwide.

Canadian farmers are increasingly adopting organic methods of production to keep up with the demand. According to the 2016 Census of Agriculture, organic is steadily seeing increases in the number of producers and acreage while attracting a rising proportion of new and young farmers. This growth is happening at the same time that non-organic farmer numbers and non-organic acreage is declining.

Between 2011 and 2016, the Census of Agriculture recorded the following changes.

While total farmland decreases nationally, organic acreage is the one form of agricultural production that continues to see significant increases.

Total acreage: ↓ 0.9%

Organic acreage: ↑ 45%

While the number of farms is similarly decreasing, there are more and more organic farms each year.

Total number of farms: ↓ 5.9%

Number of certified and transitional organic farms: ↑ 4.1%

Organic farmers are, on average, younger than non-organic farmers.

14.6% of organic farmers are under 35.

9% of non-organic farmers are under 35.

 

October 2, 2018 – Record plum harvest in Switzerland

A small harvest last year was followed by a large harvest this year: Growers picked around 4,800 tons in 2018, and this is more than ever before.

(Carefully obfuscates by not mentioning the previous record, or when it was set. – ed)

There are two main reasons that have led to this record harvest: Firstly, the trees were “well rested” this year, because last year in many regions they bore little or no fruit due to the frost. On the other hand, there were ideal conditions this year: warm and dry weather, lots of sun and a low level of disease and pest pressure. “The plums were of excellent quality this year,” says a delighted fruit grower Hansruedi Wirz, President of the Cherschen/Zwetschgen product center of the Swiss Fruit Association / Swisscofel.

The fact that the yield was so very generous has surprised even the industry. “We knew that the estimates were too low, but we would not have thought that we were this far off,” says Wirz. And there was another thing that was unusual this year: the plums were particularly large. “Never before have we had such large calibers in the first half of the harvest season like we did this year,” says Beat Gisin, Managing Director of Landi Reba.
