Observations From the Back Row

Thought For The Day

Organic pesticides and “organically produced” foods, create thinking that they would not contain any pesticides. Most people are not aware that organic gardeners can legally use a great many pesticides, so long as they are not man-made. They can use nicotine sulfate, rotenone, and pyrethrum (derived from plants), or any poisons that occur naturally, such as lime, sulfur, borax, cyanide, arsenic, and fluorine.

As the weeklong international conference on water concluded Friday, it was left to one of the keynote speakers from the United Nations to focus on a much neglected perspective on water and food security: the role of women.  Lakshmi Puri, deputy executive director of U.N. Women, told delegates that development can be neither sustainable nor inclusive if it does not free women and girls from “carrying heavy buckets of water every day”.  In Sub-Saharan Africa, 71 percent of the burden of collecting water for households falls on women and girls, says the U.N.’s 2012 report on Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).  Currently, women in Africa spend an estimated 200 million hours per day collecting water. Worldwide, it’s a whopping 40 billion hours per year.

My Take – What amazes me is that we know this is what happened all over the world before industrialization; the very thing the Non Governmental Organizations at the U.N. are trying to destroy.  The very thing the IPCC is trying to destroy.  This is what the greenies desire for the entire world.  This next article falls under the "We have lost our minds category!"
