@VivaLaChang @LizBorkowski @thatshaycrayy It's way past time for @UCSUSA & @kenkimmell to get their act together.

Some years back, @cgseife & I identified serious program problems w/ them attacking #FOIA

Why it’s OK for taxpayers to ‘snoop’ on scientists… /1
@VivaLaChang @LizBorkowski @thatshaycrayy @UCSUSA @kenkimmell @cgseife The response by @UCSUSA & @halpsci was to start lying about us and transparency activists. I was then invited to write about this for the NY Times

Scientists, Give Up Your Emails… /2
@VivaLaChang @LizBorkowski @thatshaycrayy @UCSUSA @kenkimmell @cgseife @halpsci Instead of learning from this, @halpsci doubled down, and launched some ridiculous anti-#FOIA bill in California, which @cgseife wrote about.

Scientists have #MeToo issues too. Don't exempt them… /3

India's Business Standard newspaper (@bsindia) has caused outrage by publishing a misleading attack (paid for by the pesticide industry!) on both civil society activists and public sector research bodies & their scientists who've raised questions about the safety of its products.
@bsindia The pesticide industry in its advertorial published a picture of @kkuruganti under a heading that falsely implies she's a "foreign-funded" activist "paid to malign Indian agriculture", in a clear—and dangerous!—attempt to stir up nationalist feeling against the industry's critics
@bsindia @kkuruganti The pesticide industry smears @kkuruganti, who represents a volunteer-driven network which has no foreign funding, as someone in the pay of malign foreign powers, while saying nothing about Mahyco which has a joint venture with #Monsanto to promote its GMOs & pesticides in India!

I was writing a rebuttal to Dr Grum’s article “The Case for GMOs” @Ethiobserver . But I have to break my silence as some people, out of their utter ignorance, are relentlessly making ad hominem attacks on #GMO opponents. #Ethiopia
You can search “@kebyes GMO” so that you will learn how enthusiastic I am about the issue. Unlike others who are bashing every opinion/evidence, I like to ask questions first. That is how you learn. So please ask before resorting to attacks, PEOPLE. #Ethiopia

March 17 2020: "#Gates has proved there is a far easier path to political power, one that allows unelected billionaires to shape public policy in ways that almost always generate favorable headlines: #charity."
"Describing his approach by turns as "creative capitalism" and “catalytic philanthropy," Gates oversaw a shift at his foundation to leverage "all the tools of #capitalism" to "connect the promise of #philanthropy with the power of private enterprise."

#Microsoft #Pharma
The #Gates Foundation has made over the last two decades, ...close to $2 billion in tax-deductible charitable donations to private companies—including some of the largest businesses in the world, such as #GlaxoSmithKline, #Unilever, #IBM, & #NBC Universal #Media."

Es gibt nur eine Erde, eine Menschheit, und es gibt viele mögliche Wege für die Gegenwart und in die Zukunft.
Gerade in Zeiten der großen Umbrüche öffnen sich viele Türen, klammert sich das herrschende System mit allen Mitteln der Repression &der Propaganda an die Macht.
Wer die Klimakrise ernst nimmt, fordert, dass sich die Menschheit proaktiv auf mögliche auch nicht menschengemachte Klimaveränderungen einstellt statt Ultrareiche&deren Kriege zu finanzieren, so dass alle Menschen in Zukunft menschenwürdig überleben&leben können #FridaysForFuture
Wer die Coronakrise ernst nimmt, fordert, dass sich die Menschheit vom Kapitalismus befreit und ihren gesamten geliehenen Reichtum mit allem Leben teilt und eine herrschaftsfreie Gesellschaft der größtmöglichen Teilhabe, Freiheit und Vielfalt für alles Leben anstrebt.

Petit thread sur un sujet à la mode : le riz doré. Cet OGM qui va sauver, parait-il, des millions de vies.
1/13 Tout d'abord, les carences en vitamines A sont un problème artificiel. Car les caroténoïdes (leurs précurseurs) sont omniprésents dans la nature. Ce sont des pigments de la photosynthèse qui améliorent l'efficacité de la chlorophylle.
2/13 Les sources naturelles de vitamines A ne se limitent donc pas aux carottes, potirons, abricots, mangues, etc. Tous les légumes verts, contiennent des caroténoïdes en quantités suffisantes. Mais aussi certaines huiles sont tres riches en caroténoïdes (l'huile de palme, etc).

Haitao Xiang, a #China National who worked as an Imaging Scientist for #Monsanto and its subsidiary, The Climate Corporation, was indicted for economic espionage.
He was also charged with trade secret theft and conspiracy to steal trade secrets, so there were more people involved. Probably the CCP/China.
Monsanto and the Climate Corporation created software used by farmers to help them with agricultural data & improve productivity. They used a porporitary algorithm called “Nutrient Optimizer” which was part of their IP and a very valuable trade secret.

#Monsanto pleaded guilty to illegally spraying banned pesticide Penncap-M on research crops and corn seed at one of its facilities in Maui, Hawaii.

They used the pesticide after they knew it was banned and made their employees enter the sprayed fields after 7 days, even though they knew workers should have been prohibited from the area for at least 31 days after spraying.
They entered into a deferred prosecution agreement for two years and must pay $10 million in fines.

@ZeMax__lib Thread intéressant à lire mais qui oublie certains passage je trouve : 1) Concernant les agences de santé qui disent que les pesticides (le glyphosate j'imagine) sont sans danger, il ne faudrait pas oublier le CIRC (organisme de l'OMS) qui a classé le glyphosate en 2A
@ZeMax__lib 2) Concernant l'avis des agences de santé, il est basé sur les études publiées par la communauté scientifique, sauf qu'entre temps les #monsanto papers ont révélés certaines pratiques (ghost writing, publication par des consultant de monsanto...) qui jettent le doute...
@ZeMax__lib 3) Toujours coté santé, on a la problématique de l'effet cocktail : un pesticide en dessous des seuils on sait ce que ça fait à la santé, 20/30/40... mélangés ensemble dans un corps humain on a déjà beaucoup plus de mal à savoir

1/4 Researcher Selim Cetiner of @sabanciu in Turkey sure seems flipped out that @GMWatch ran this clip by @corinnelepage defending Seralini's research finding harm from GMO corn.

Cetiner complains it undermines his discussions w/ reporters.

Email here:…
@sabanciu @GMWatch @corinnelepage 2/4 Selim Cetiner email goes to the AgBioChatter list for help in attack @corinnelepage who defended the Seralini study finding harm from #GMO corn.

See LePage piece posted at @GMWatch in English, here:…

At the time, LePage was MEP repping 450 million
@sabanciu @GMWatch @corinnelepage 3/4 Like magic, Selim Cetiner email to AgBioChatter is forwarded to . . . . #Monsanto


#Monsanto execs then get to work, apparently to hand off #GMO info to Cetiner so he can undermine LePage.

L'@AN_OPECST a publié un rapport 📝 éclairant, pédagogue et précis sur l'évaluation des risques par les agences sanitaires. #glyphosate
🔴 Il montre aussi, selon moi, des éléments souvent ignorés ou causés par la com. MALHONNETE de certaines associations écolo.
💠 Notamment ⤵️
⚠️ La distinction RISQUE vs DANGER doit être rappelée.
➡️ On dit souvent que corrélation n'implique PAS CAUSALITE, la nuance est essentielle.

To me the push back against #BigPharma #Vaccines #GunControl #Police #Prisons #Abortion #GMO #Monsanto et al and the other top level conspiracy debates are about government control! Think about the polarised sides that these debates take and who is on which side!
Do Democrats want overarching control in a socialist state? They support abortion choices which conservatives say ‘kills’ millions each year! Which can be spun as controlling the reproductive capabilities of some sections of society.
They support Gun Control which would leave the people defenceless against a tyrannical government. The support open borders and mass migration which would undoubtedly create a class of uneducated workers that would be taken advantage of.

"It has emerged that an institute co-run by the chairman of the #UN’s joint meeting on pesticide residues (#JMPR) received a six-figure donation from #Monsanto, which uses the substance as a core ingredient in its bestselling #Roundup weedkiller."
2. "Professor Alan #Boobis, who chaired the #UN’s joint FAO/WHO meeting on #glyphosate, also works as the vice-president of the International Life Science Institute (#ILSI) Europe.
In 2012, the ILSI group took a $500,000 (£344,234) donation from Monsanto!"
3 Lawyer, ClientEarth group: "There is a clear conflict of interest here if the review of the safety of #glyphosate is carried out by scientists that directly get money from industry.This study cannot in any way be reliably considered when deciding whether to approve glyphosate."

I lived in England for years and as an investigative reporter I followed the creation of this monstrosity of globalization called the #EuropeanUnion. It's #NAFTA times 50!… #Brexit
My investigation into the EU began when I got the minutes of 14 secret meetings between all the top banking chiefs and international government operatives. They called themselves #TheInvisibles.… #Brexit
The Invisibles were writing the rules of the EU to smash unions and stop regulation of industry. We’ve just seen an example of this; Germany was about to vote to eliminate #RoundUp, but changed its crucial vote weeks after BAYER bought #Monsanto.… #Brexit

📣 Achtung, Achtung: Dies ist eine wichtige Durchsage zur Nähe des Bundesinstituts für Risikobewertung (BfR) zur Industrie [THREAD].

(Hintergrund: Das BfR lässt unsere Partner von @fragdenstaat gerade wg. der Veröffentlichung eines #Glyphosat-Gutachtens abmahnen👇)
1 | Das BfR ist eine staatliche Einrichtung. Im Gegensatz zur Weltgesundheitsorganisation WHO hält sie das Unkrautvernichtungsmittel #Glyphosat für *nicht krebserzeugend*
2 | Über das Bundesinstitut lässt sich vieles sagen. Dass das BfR bislang großen Abstand zur Industrie gehalten hätte, gehört nicht dazu.

Sehen wir uns einmal die Mitglieder der BfR-Kommission für "Pflanzenschutzmittel und ihre Rückstände" an.

Retrouver dans ce fil mon intervention dans la discussion générale pour interdire l'usage du #glyphosate en France. #LoisFi2019 #DirectAN
⬇️ A dérouler ! ⬇️
Le constat est clair et sans appel : une exposition régulière au #glyphosate augmente de 41% les risques de souffrir d’une forme rare de cancer du sang. C’est un chiffre effrayant. #DirectAN #LoisFi2019
D’autres études, comme celle de Gilles-Eric Séralini, ont déjà démontré que le #glyphosate est cancérigène pour les animaux. Et l’OMS reconnaît même ce pesticide comme cancérigène probable pour l’homme.
A minima, le principe de précaution devrait s’imposer. #LoisFi2019 #DirectAN

If you ever worried that science was being warped by corporate interests, this backpedal by AAAS in giving an award to pesticide researcher should lay that to rest.

Answer seems to be "yes."
