Update On Remineralize the Earth

Become a Member

Undertaking the task of remineralization is urgent to restore ecological balance and stabilize the climate. Sustainable agriculture in today’s world is a major priority, and soil remineralization is playing a crucial and vital role in ensuring the future well-being of all life. Remineralize the Earth, a nonprofit membership based organization, promotes the regeneration of soils and forests worldwide with finely ground gravel dust as an economically and ecologically sustainable alternative to chemical fertilizers and pesticides, creating fertile soils much as the Earth does. Not only do we need to recycle and return the organic matter to the soil, we can also recycle the mineral nutrients to create fertile soils and produce healthier crops.

The vision of soil remineralization is spreading with a clear momentum from gardener and farmer to industry, scientist and policy maker. Remineralize the Earth is the leading resource in coordinating research and application of this growing science, with practitioners and researchers throughout the world.

We at Remineralize the Earth are making rapid progress towards our goal to bring the concept and application of soil remineralization into the mainstream.

John Hamaker and Don Weaver’s inspiring book The Survival of Civilization is now available in its entirety on the website. Don has updated the original text and also created a powerful new companion volume, To Love And Regenerate The Earth: Further Perspectives on The Survival of Civilization. Both books are available from Don for free on the website, a gift to our endangered Earth.

Overall we are increasing the visibility of the organization to attract a greater and more coordinated presence in sustainable agriculture, forestry, and climate issues. To help us with this vital and urgent task, we are asking for your support.

Tax Deductible Donation
You can help us make a major impact in getting remineralization into the mainstream, mounting an educational outreach program throughout the world, and continuing to develop and sustain the website. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation. We greatly appreciate your help at this time in creating and sustaining a viable membership organization!

Remineralize the Earth encourages soil remineralization through as many individuals, organizations, companies, and government bodies as choose to participate in this all-important work. We think it is essential, as a non-profit educational organization, to avoid inappropriate commercial influence or favoritism. The fact that we welcome commercial memberships and sponsorships for our website does not in our view conflict with our concern for open-minded educational integrity and progress.

Rowan needs a secretary

he either
a: can't be bothered with posterity
b: has a low opinion of himself
c: scatters himself thin knowing well his are heady and dense doses

some samples:

Latin America wakes to alternatives (Znet-Pilger-longish)

America is daring the rest of the world to burst their credit bubble. China is trying to find a risk-free way of doing this. Iraq is a mere pawn in the oil game, and to some extent in the zionist game, which America tends to bandwagon upon ideologically speaking. Europe is immune to this zionist bandwagon game, but not to the fear that it is going to be "swamped with immigrants" (this is the universal fear of regions targetted by neo-liberal international labor migration policies, i.e. the wealthy areas, and corresponds to the fear of poorer regions that they will lose their workers, their land, and their resources, and starve to death). Russia : aha ... who can read the depths of the Slavic Soul??
Money is credit (not debit) so its value is a product of mass psychology, hence the games above.
Religion is a degenerate form of yoga.
If America was a democracy it would choose fascism, but it

would pay people to describe it as democracy. Come to think of it ...
Other systems - I think I just covered that in my democracy section.

Between 18 and 20 a woman is like China, half discovered,

half wild, naturally beautiful with fertile deltas.

Between 21 and 30 a woman is like America, well developed

and open to trade especially for someone with cash.

Between 31 and 35 she is like India, very hot, relaxed and

convinced of her own beauty.

Between 36 and 40 a woman is like Europe. Gently aging but

still a warm and desirable place to visit.

Between 41 and 50 she is like Iraq, lost the war - haunted

by past mistakes. Massive reconstruction is now necessary.

Between 51 and 60, she is like Russia, very wide and

borders are unpatrolled. The frigid climate keeps people away.

Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Mongolia, with a

glorious and all conquering past but alas, no future.

After 70, they become Afghanistan. Most everyone knows

where it is, but no one wants to go there.

Rowan Berkeley. A refreshing dare. You strike one as one

whose answer to what came first the chicken or the egg

would say its actually the rooster. A select few would

dare to give that answer. By the bye is the Tony man for real?

Variants of Turkism -- Rowan Berkeley ---
Dear dangerous zionists, say after me: 'look ma, no blood'

halfway october
another check drawn on the power of dark intimation triggered by the holy hollow cause pr manifacturation; 'Gorby' slandering Rowan, after all, I think Rowan would think, like I do, that secession is much like the blessing for necessary mainstay: puttings in places as size reduction is for rock baking in the sun but not slaking in the rain for lack of that perfectly bloodless solution (exactly the sort of ones that cause the zionists to preclude they 'stir up hatred', never fails, as Gorby proves a ways down after the host of the comment by Gorby returns the ball for a point):

It's actually you who is attributing sinister motives to
Israel's detractors. You're just a basic liar and smear
merchant - nothing sinister about that. In fact it's dead
common among zionists.

Regarding your comments on Rowan Berkeley he stopped
posting comments to Lenin's Tomb and to here precisely
because he was earning disapprobation on both sites.
Frankly, I didnt follow that stuff about De-onto-whatsit
and I still dont know what it means. But to use one
persons comments on a blog to smear all anti-zionists -
and don't pretend you didn't do that - is as cheap a shot
as any fired from the zionists' "intellectual" arsenal.

And it's haloscan that notes the IP address.

One question (well a cluster of questions) - as a watchdog
against obscure manifestations of racism, do you have time
to combat the more overt forms, like say, zionism? And if
you do, what name do you use? And where do you do it?

http://kurtnimmo.com/?p=20 2 rowan comments and 6 comments on rowan (I swung by this item a few weeks ago)

This rasputin article link is pretty brilliant, though it

seems to be based on Webster Griffin Tarpley’s new book,

“Synthetic Terrorism”, which I suppose I should try to get

hold of. Now Tarpley, like Larouche, holds to a theory of

’synarchism’ which I find frankly absurd, namely, that

Likud Zionism is an equal partner with top-down Nazism in

running the NWO. I have simplified this equation by

leaving out other Zionisms than the Likud one (which after

all did start out as an ally of Mussolini, so that much is

known) and also leaving out non-top-down Nazism (i.e. all

the non-ruling-class white power organisations, which are

basically diversionary, except in so far as they may

provide patsies - just like the corresponding far left

groups). BUT, even having said all that, I still think the

idea that any sort of Jew is in bed with any sort of Nazi

is a priori somewhat absurd - Mussolini’s early

philo-judaic form of fascism is a mere anomaly in the

light of the broader and now incontrovertible antagonism

between Jews and Nazis worldwide.

Better than taking back the word ‘liberal’, would be grasping the fact that the two terms ‘liberal’ and ‘conservative’ have had their meanings switched around over the last hundred years or so. ‘Liberal’ actually means, let capitalism and the market have their way. ‘Conservatism’ means, hold something back from subjection to the market, call it what you will, the commonweal or something.

Name: Rowan Berkeley
City: London State: England
This will sadden Paul, I know, but I am sure it`s the real explanation : the dispute between (ostensibly) christian creationists and (historically) jewish secularists in american education and law is a gigantic red herring intended to distract attention from the actual jewish affiliations of the bush regime.

There is something in Matthew's article that confuses me. He says:
"While the United States became increasingly bogged down in Iraq, the Iranian position was strengthened as anti-American sentiment rose throughout the region and it became increasingly unclear that military action would be taken. The Iranian nuclear program has proceeded apace - or even been accelerated - while the neocons fell from favor and Rice returned to her realist roots. She brought Robert Blackwill, her former boss in the first Bush administration's National Security Council, onto her staff and charged him with wresting control of Iraq policy away from the Pentagon. At this Blackwill, who favors engagement with Iran, has been successful. Paul Bremer was wooed away from the neocons, dropped his support for Ahmed Chalabi, and the American Enterprise Institute and other neocon strongholds are now seething with discontent about the outcome of their venture."
---But surely Chalabi is being accused of feeding intelligence to Iran, of endevouring to act in Iran's interest as that interest is perceived by Iranian intelligence itself, of being in effect an Iranian mole within the neocon cabal. In what way is Bremer cutting him loose supposed to illustrate a more 'realist' (i.e. negotiatory) position vis-a-vis the Iranian power elite, then?

Let me just reiterate my question : if Chalabi was an Iranian agent within the neocon cabal, then how does getting rid of him assist the 'realists'? Surely, if he is Iran's man in the theatre, then keeping him would be the best way to spite the neocons, who were totally fooled by him to their great cost and embarrassment.

To address the question you are all talking about, it might be worth looking at the usually sensible Uzi Benziman in Haaretz, who has fallen rightly or wrongly for the CFR line. I have much graver doubts about it, but people like Ian Lustick support it. It holds that evacuating the west bank, or at least some of it, is still feasible, that Sharon can be made to do it, and that this will defang the entire middle eastern conflict. Pollyanna-ish, but there it is. Perhaps what is really at issue here is a symbolic de-escalation of Israeli aggression in the region, if I can put it that way.

There is a question of practicality here. If Mr Gedanken wants to engage in pre-emptive strikes against the potentially dual-use nuclear facilities of countries hither and yon, he is going to have to factor in the known effect of this which is that all such countries will accelerate their nuclear programs and the said targets will in fact multiply. Now, to target a proliferating set of proliferators he has to trade off accuracy and selectivity of strikes against rapidity and number. In other words, he has to plaster the planet with RNEPs. Not too smart really. He would be better advised to grasp the fact that Israel, unlike your average country, is a partially failed colonial enterprise analogous to apartheid-era South Africa. Israel itself is the 'head of the snake' of proliferation, as should be obvious really if one was not blinded by the fashionable American religion of Holocaustianity, which sees absolutely everything through Spielbergian eyes.

"US analysts estimate that Russian military expenditures have tripled during the Bush-Putin years, in large measure a predicted response to Bush administration bellicosity. On both sides, nuclear warheads remain on hair-trigger alert. The Russian control systems, however, have deteriorated. The dangers ratchet up with the threat and use of force.

As anticipated, US military plans have provoked a Chinese reaction as well. China has announced plans to "transform its military into a technology-driven force capable of projecting power globally by 2010," Boston Globe correspondent Jehangir Pocha reported last month, "replacing its land-based nuclear arsenal of about 20 1970s-era intercontinental ballistic missiles with 60 new multiple-warhead missiles capable of reaching the United States."

China’s actions are likely to touch off a ripple effect through India, Pakistan and beyond. Nuclear developments in Iran and North Korea, also in part at least a response to US threats, are exceedingly ominous. The unthinkable becomes thinkable.

In 2003, at the UN General Assembly, the United States voted alone against implementation of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty and alone with its new ally India against steps toward the elimination of nuclear weapons."

"I got married for all the wrong reasons," she says in
the film documentary. "My husband did not turn out to be
everything I had imagined him to be. I just wanted to end
everything." How did she cope? Madonna came to understand
that her expectations for marriage were not realistic.

"There is no such thing as the perfect soul mate,"
Madonna explains. If you think someone is perfect, she
advises, "You had better run as fast as you can in the
other direction. Your soul mate is the person that pushes
all your buttons. The person who [bleeps] you off on a
regular basis and makes you face your [bleep]. ...I thank
God every day that I married a man who makes me think.
That is my definition of true love." --- thus spake The Madonna
