• The 3 Trade Lawyers Who Will Decide If Mexicans Can Be Forced to Eat the U.S.’s GMO Corn

    7 MAG 2024 · Mexico has been making bold policy moves against genetically modified crops and the toxic pesticides they were engineered to be grown with, by phasing-out imports of GMO corn and showing its support for food sovereignty, soil regeneration and agroecology. But, how serious could Mexico be, if it is now ceding its national sovereignty to a three-person panel of the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) under which the United States is challenging its 2023 Corn Decree? Supposedly, Mexico wants food sovereignty and self-sufficiency, but apparently, it values trade with the United States and Canada so much that it is willing to let its democratically enacted laws be superseded by this so-called “free-trade” agreement. (What’s so “free” about it, if it can be used to force a country to import stuff it doesn’t want?!) Fight For the Sovereign Right to Reject GMOs!

  • Blocking the Sun Is NOT a Climate Solution!

    18 LUG 2023 · https://advocacy.organicconsumers.org/page/54687/action/1 “[W]hen you start to reflect light away from the planet, you can easily imagine a chain of events that would extinguish life on earth.” That’s what https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Keith_(physicist), one of the world’s top solar engineering scientists, told the https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2012/05/14/the-climate-fixers about his own life’s work. With a warning like that, it’s easy to see why Mexico is https://www.geoengineeringmonitor.org/2023/01/by-prohibiting-solar-geoengineering-experiments-mexico-sets-a-global-example-of-precaution/. That, and the fact that a start-up called “Make Sunsets” was caught trying to block the sun in Baja California Sur—without permission from, or even notifying, the government! Moving in the other direction, the Biden Administration is officially exploring ways to https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/Congressionally-Mandated-Report-on-Solar-Radiation-Modification.pdf, while the European Union has recently floated “https://www.eeas.europa.eu/sites/default/files/documents/2023/JOIN_2023_19_1_EN_ACT_part1_v7.pdf” for going forward with research into this misguided and ineffective attempt to address the global climate crisis. Few policy makers in the U.S. have tried to wrap their heads around this issue, but a group of Rhode Island state legislators have drafted a bill, the http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText23/HouseText23/H5866.pdf that’s a great introduction. https://advocacy.organicconsumers.org/page/54687/action/1
