For over 20 years, Hawai’i has been the global center for the open-field testing of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s), including pharmaceutical crops. Over 5,000 experimental tests have been conducted by Monsanto, Dow, Dupont/Pioneer, Syngenta and BASF that spray chemicals on an almost daily basis on our most valuable lands. They are supported by tax-breaks, and beneficial relationships with landowners, regulators and politicians. We estimate GMO companies own or lease 40,000 — 60,000 acres that are sprayed with over 70 different chemicals.

A new vision for Hawai’i would promote small farms that grow chemical-free produce, employ our youth and restore the indigenous ahupua’a system. Hawai’i has less than 3,000 acres of certified organic farmland, which is 0.27% of Hawaiian farmland.

Kamehameha Schools is Hawaii’s largest private landowner. Despite Kamehameha’s public statements about sustainability and conservation, they lease substantial amounts of land to multi-national biotech firms, including Monsanto, Dow, Dupont/Pioneer and Syngenta for GMO open field tests and seed corn production.

Kamehameha is the only institution with the land, capital and resources to reduce our food imports, that are now over 90%, and ensure that Hawai’i does not run out of food in case of natural disasters or rising oil prices.

    “As global challenges and scientific information proliferate, nations and people face common threats that transcend national boundaries. Overpopulation, energy shortages, global warming, environmental pollution, water scarcity, economic catastrophe, the spread of uncontrollable disease, and the technological displacement of people by machines threaten each of us. Although many people are dedicated to alleviating those conditions, our social and environmental problems will remain insurmountable as long as a few powerful nations and financial interests maintain control of and consume most of the world’s resources and the monetary system prevails.”

    The mechanical cotton picker qualifies as the worse invention of all time, because ever since it came along crime rates have skyrocketed to unbelievable levels.

  • This is an excellent and informative film, with a broad scope and great research, I learned quite a bit and I’m grateful for that, just a couple of points, would be worth mentioning thorium reactors as a safer alternative to nuclear, also the interest driven market economy that was designed to fail was created with the introduction of the Federal Reserve in 1913 by a group of people that now control the worlds banking and media networks, and have been responsible for the subversion of Western culture as well as all two world wars – they also plan their own World Government based upon Talmudic values, not sure I caught that in the final ads.

    only worth 3.5? more like 5+; ties together present trends and presents an ultimately optimistic future; but watch out for that “temporary” mass poverty phase.

    We have seven billion people on earth now. What happens when we can run the entire place on 200 million jobs? The current paradigm is that welfare is only for bums, so we can’t just give them money so they can continue consuming. They will literally have nothing to do. Do they just try eking out a living growing radishes on our post-industrial waste lots? Or do we then have 6.8 billion units of Soylent green on our hands?
