International Paper Co. and MeadWestvaco (MVC) (ArborGen LLC, the joint venture) are planning to transform plantation forests of the southeastern U.S. by replacing native pine with genetically engineered eucalyptus. From the same genetic engineering that has given us GMO corn and soy, CISERO wheat and widespread farmer debt and suicide, we can now look forward to the demise of the “real ” forest altogether.

Few other companies have dared to try to splice foreign DNA into native trees thus far. But an engineered, fast-growing eucalyptus, which grows widely in Australia, will soon replace the native pine in the U.S. as an attempt to dominate the U.S. timber industry.

Originally Titled: Genetically Engineered Trees!! Watch Documentary A Silent Forest GMO TERROR

I am uploading this video to help bring this information to more people.

FYI – This video is part of a playlist I called “RFID – Sunday Law – Sabbath is Saturday – GMO – Changing DNA”. Click on the link below if interested in checking out more videos on this topic and what I believe are related topics, for the mark of the beast, 666 and why I believe Sabbath still stands and it is on Saturday not Sunday.

Description: Featuring famed geneticist David Suzuki. Bt toxin producing genetically engineered trees would be a nightmare beyond our wildest dreams, destroying the world’s ecology and insect population.

Climate change threatens Ghana’s coast – Features

Climate change threatens Ghana’s coast
Coastal erosion has forced a town of thousands to flee into a swampy, trash-filled area.

Totope, Ghana – Ask anyone in this fishing village along Ghana’s eastern coast where they grew up, and they’ll likely point south, towards the blue waves of the Gulf of Guinea.

The ocean has encroached on areas that were once land, dry enough for the villagers of Totope to grow crops, build homes and raise families.

It’s all gone now, buried by crushing waves and shifting sands that have forced the village of a few thousand to move onto swampy land reclaimed with an unreliable mix of sand and trash.

The people here don’t think it will last.

“The future of Totope looks very, very bleak,” the village’s chief Theophilus Agbakla said.

Grain by grain, West Africa’s coasts are eroding away, the dry land sucked under the water by a destructive mix of natural erosion and human meddling.

Sediment flows in Ghana and elsewhere have been disrupted by the damming of rivers. Climate change has led to harsher storms and higher waters. Meanwhile, resurgent economies in many West African countries are bringing development closer and closer to the shore.

From Senegal to Nigeria, scientists say eroding beaches will soon pose an unavoidable threat to booming coastal populations.

A glimpse of that future can be seen in Totope. Situated with a lagoon to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south, the village of less than three thousand is cursed by its geography.

Salt water seeps through the makeshift landfill that Totope rests on. Villagers walk on soggy ground, dodging creeks that run between houses, and they hang their possessions from ceiling rafters to keep them above their often-wet floors.

“Have you seen how the sea broke the town?” asked Michael Akutu, a fisherman who like most people here grew up on now submerged real estate. “Now, it’s all gone.”

Rapid coastal erosion

As the ocean pushes the shoreline back, the beach has risen up to swallow whatever gets in its way.

There’s an old Pentecostal church, still standing with sand up to its windows.

One resilient soul dug a trench and bought himself a little more time from the wall of sand that’s advancing on his house.

Uncovering the hidden destruction of the oceans

Published on May 7, 2013

Tuna fishing in the Indian Ocean is poorly controlled. Too many boats are taking too many fish, and often these boats that come from wealthier, distant nations use wasteful and destructive fishing techniques. With the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission underway in Mauritius, Greenpeace has been bearing witness to the covert destruction of the high seas and sharing their findings with the IOTC.
