Rock Phosphate KEY To Our Destruction

Phosphorus, P, exists in 3 allotropic forms, red, white and black. Red and white are more common.(Nuggets of Information) Both red and white P are poly-atomic and are 4 P atoms that form a tetrahedron. (Fig.3) White phosphorus reacts vigorously with oxygen and the reaction results in a popping sound that is similar to a dog barking. Phosphorus pentoxide is formed during the oxidation process (Ref.4):

P4 + 5O2 → 2P2O5

The chemical behavior of phosphorus is interesting because as a non-metal it exhibits ionic and covalent bonding depending on where it is present. It is an important element in complex organic compounds like ATP, (adenosine tri-phophate) as well as in simpler molecules like phosphoric acid ,H3PO4, oxides of phosphorus, or as a phosphate, PO43- in an inorganic compound. ATP is an energy-bearing molecule present in all living organisms. (Ref.5)(Fig.3)(Nuggets of Information)

The most common use of phosphorus is in the manufacture of fertilizers. It is also used in the production of steel and was used extensively in the manufacture of detergents, though lately phosphate-free detergents are more prevalent. This is because the phosphates that leached into water bodies affected it adversely.

There is much talk about peak phosphorus today. This means that our demand is exceeding the supply of phosphorus. In 2008, the world was shocked by an 800% increase in the price of phosphorus. Several factors including world reserves, agricultural practices using excessive amounts of manufactured phosphates have played a role in this shortage. As a society, we need to be cognizant of these problems and figure out ways to counteract the decrease in phosphorus. (Nuggets of Information)(Ref. 6)

Science makes Sense, Week 17: Phosphorus, fertilizers, ATP , LEDs , phossy jaw and wars.

"Phossy Jaw"...I had this by sleeping in a room attached to a green house...I went  to 2 doctors to get help, and neither would believe or listen ...to what caused my intense pain, and disability...
Not being able to use my mouth, eat, terrible pain, could barely even talk tongue all swollen, and ulcers in my mouth...
"in the case of my jaw a centipede poison pellet system was put in a badly ventilated green house, under the open floor boards of the hall, on the other side of the wall and hall outside my unventilated bedroom. Within 1 week of moving to another home...My jaw and mouth were perfectly fine."

I really could have lost my jaw, and parts of my mouth by this attitude of...
"Pesticides do not harm people."
They are hiding pesticide injury on purpose...WHY!!!
To make money...

The commodity phosphorus is being used up...Will that be the end of pesticides, and chemical fertilizers...are they done taking their profits in the Commodity Exchanges, and Stock Markets?
 Aquifers across the US are being found to have radioactivity in them...

The study reports that 78 percent of the uranium-contaminated sites were linked to the presence of nitrate, a common groundwater contaminant that originates mainly from chemical fertilizers and animal waste. Nitrate mobilizes naturally occurring uranium through a series of bacterial and chemical reactions that oxidize the radioactive mineral, making it soluble in groundwater.
The High Plains aquifer -- the largest in the United States -- provides drinking water and irrigation for an eight-state swath that stretches from South Dakota through Nebraska and into northern Texas. As California's largest reservoir, the Central Valley aquifer sits beneath some of the state's most fertile agricultural land. According to a 2012 census from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the two aquifers irrigate cropland that accounts for one-sixth of the annual revenue generated by U.S. agriculture....
UNL researchers Karrie Weber and Jason Nolan found that the High Plains aquifer contains uranium concentrations up to 89 times the EPA standard and nitrate concentrations up to 189 times greater. The uranium and nitrate levels of the California-based Central Valley aquifer measured up to 180 and 34 times their respective EPA thresholds.

Dealing w/Pesticides w/Effects w/Science from 1993

Pesticide Poisoning is Cholinesterase Inhibition...100%

"Any pesticide that can bind, or inhibit, cholinesterase, making it unable to breakdown acetylcholine, is called a "cholinesterase inhibitor," or "anticholinesterase agent." ..Every person has his/her own individual 'normal' range of baseline cholinesterase values; cholinesterase levels vary greatly within an individual, between individuals, between test laboratories, and between test methods.

The extent of potential pesticide poisoning can be better understood if cholinesterase tests taken after exposure to the cholinesterase inhibiting pesticides can be compared to the individual's baseline, pre-exposure measurement...
(IMO Everyone who moves to an area known to be toxic should have a baseline reading beforehand. I've NEVER had this reading as doctors refuse to acknowledge my pesticide poisoning...Even though I repeat it over, and over at every office visit. And... I've been through 50 doctors in my 4 major poisonings already, since 1995.)

The two main classes of cholinesterase inhibiting pesticides are the organophosphates (OPs) and the carbamates (CMs). Some newer chemicals, such as the chlorinated derivatives of nicotine can also affect the cholinesterase enzyme.

Organophosphate insecticides include some of the most toxic pesticides. They can enter the human body through skin absorption, inhalation and ingestion. They can affect cholinesterase activity in both red blood cells and in blood plasma, and can act directly, or in combination with other enzymes, on cholinesterase in the body."

Howz this? "OVEREXPOSURE"...WT? 
Who do think they are kidding here? 
Similar to " pesticide does not harm people" lie.
This study is over 22 years old...
USDA has recently raised the allowable levels...3000%...
Exactly what was the point of doing that? 
For our health??

"Overexposure to organophosphate and carbamate insecticides can result in cholinesterase inhibition. These pesticides combine with acetylcholinesterase at nerve endings in the brain and nervous system, and with other types of cholinesterase found in the blood. This allows acetylcholine to build up, while protective levels of the cholinesterase enzyme decrease. The more cholinesterase levels decrease, the more likely symptoms of poisoning from cholinesterase inhibiting pesticides are to show."

"symptoms can be confused with influenza (flu), heat prostration, alcohol intoxication, exhaustion, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), asthma, gastroenteritis, pneumonia, and brain hemorrhage. This can cause problems if the symptoms of lowered cholinesterase levels are either ignored or misdiagnosed as something more or less harmful than they really are.
The types and severity of cholinesterase inhibition symptoms depend on:

  1. the toxicity of the pesticide.
  2. the amount of pesticide involved in the exposure.
  3. the route of exposure.
  4. the duration of exposure."
"When symptoms of decreased cholinesterase levels first appear, it is impossible to tell whether a poisoning will be mild or severe. In many instances, when the skin is contaminated, symptoms can quickly go from mild to severe even though the area is washed. Certain chemicals can continue to be absorbed through the skin in spite of cleaning efforts."

"Ideally, a pre-exposure baseline cholinesterase value should be established for any individual before they come in regular contact with organophosphates and carbamates. Fortunately, the breakdown of cholinesterase can be reversed and cholinesterase levels will return to normal if pesticide exposure is stopped.


Humans have three types of cholinesterase: red blood cell (RBC) cholinesterase, called "true cholinesterase;" plasma cholinesterase, called "pseudocholinesterase;" and brain cholinesterase. Red blood cell cholinesterase is the same enzyme that is found in the nervous system, while plasma cholinesterase is made in the liver.When a cholinesterase blood test is taken, two types of cholinesterase can be detected. Physicians find plasma cholinesterase readings helpful for detecting the early, acute effects of organophosphate poisoning, while red blood cell readings are useful in evaluating long-term, or chronic, exposure (8).
The cholinesterase test is a blood test used to measure the effect of exposure to certain or cholinesterase-affected insecticides. Both plasma (or serum) and red blood cell (RBC) cholinesterase should be tested. These two tests have different meanings and the combined report is needed by the physician for a complete understanding of the individual's particular cholinesterase situation.
Laboratory methods for cholinesterase testing differ greatly, and results obtained by one method cannot be easily compared with results obtained by another. Sometimes there is also considerable variation in test results between laboratories using the same testing method. Whenever possible, cholinesterase monitoring for an individual should be performed in the same laboratory, using a consistent testing method."

I can hardly believe this was put into the article!RIGHT HERE IS GROUNDS TO PUT THEM ALL OUT OF BUSINESS!

"...factors should be considered in deciding how often someone should have his/her cholinesterase levels tested:...
D. The past safety record of a company and the work history and experience of an individual."

Ohia Sacrifice to Eradicate Monsanto

A new fungus they haven't ever seen?..Travels through the soil you idiots...
They brought the GMO Papaya here, and set up farms for all the workers from the closed sugar plants with 10 acres farms all using huge amounts of pesticide too...Giving them the very seeds of our forests destruction....Destroying the soil, life in it, and, natural barriers and protections....THANKS MONSANTO, USDA, and Cornell University for destroying our O'hi'a forests!
From the GMO papaya...Garuns ball baruns...
Suzanne Case- director of, and the DLNR work for Monsanto..They are partners...Having the USDA, or U of H study the catastrophe is useless...They all work for Monsanto!!
Only will reap more lies, cover-ups, and total degradation
They say they have no idea how the fungus- Black Spot travels. Are they stupid, or something? YES! SOMETHING ALRIGHT...
And just because it has attacked a different tree doesn't make it any different then what it is! Something created in a lab through DNA, or maybe even RNAi....THESE PEOPLE LIE!
O'hi'a roots are not that deep...We need to support the world within the soil to end this.
Gyphosate (RoundUp) causes FUNGUS to grow faster, and stronger...It breeds better in the toxic dead soup! Demonstrated on this blog with Aflaxtoxin.

Rapid Ohia Death Video Brochure from Hawaii DLNR on Vimeo.

IF a carrot can get the O'hi'a fungus in the lab. Is it a new fungus to name?
And growing it with a root plant too!

What ever "They" suggest as a fix is under suspicion...

No idea where it came from? New? Never heard of it?
Ohia's naturally die, so no problem? Close to your heart?

We could have avoided all this by paying attention, and NOT BEING GREEDY!
They saw with another fungus how Papaya would affect the plant, and their own areas...We were warned about clearing forests and growing in the Ohia's virgin soils.!
"The disease was first noticed in the Puna district of Hawaii island in 1970. This disease has been primarily observed on papaya seedlings planted in fields newly cleared of native ohia (Metrosideros collina) forests. The disease usually occurs during or following prolonged heavy rains in areas where drainage is poor.
The fungus produces abundant conidia, ascospores and microsclerotia. Conidia and ascospores are responsible for long distance spread and microsclerotia for long term survival. The fungus is capable of surviving for more than three years in the absence of host plants. Microsclerotia are more effective in killing seedlings than conidia or ascospores. Despite these attributes this disease has not been a major problem in replant fields.
The clearing of ohia forests for papaya orchards is no longer practiced and the disease incidence, therefore, is erratic. The disease does appear periodically when weather conditions (i.e. frequent and heavy rains) are favorable.
The susceptibility of four commercial lines of papaya in increasing susceptibility are Kapoho Solo, Line 8, Waimanalo and Sunrise Solo."

Pesticides Cause Red Blood to Clot

You are eating it in your food...GMO food.
"Scientists tested levels ranging from 27 mg to 270 mg over a seven day period, it was remarkably evident that the Cry toxins were hemotoxic, even at the lowest doses administered. Hemotoxins destroy red blood cells, disrupt blood clotting and cause organ degeneration and tissue damage.

The number of RBC’s, (red blood cells) as well as their size, were significantly reduced, and so were the levels of hemoglobin for oxygen to attach to. Every factor regarding RBC’s indicated some level of damage for all levels of toxin administered and across all cry proteins. The tests clearly demonstrated that Cry proteins resulting from the Bt toxin were cytotoxic (quality of being toxic to cells) to bone marrow cells. Studies contiually show that these proteins kill blood cells bytargeting the cell membranes of RBC’s."


Old poster but, still happening...When is this going to change?
We have said our peace to the state...Now we demand more action to rid these monsters from our shores!

Native Hawai'ian Bees Forage Only Native Hawai'ian Plants

Mahalo...Jan Roberson,

...she got the County to fund her Native Hawai'ian planting of the entire Ho'okipa Beach  Park...This was the 1st time I ever saw a bee at the beach here.

Native and Adventive Bees of the Hawaiian Islands
The bees of the Hawaiian Islands include the native bees of the genus Hylaeus(Nesoprosopis)
as well as over a dozen other species that arrived after the Islands were colonized by humans. Here we briefly review the bee fauna as an aid to identifying the native species.

Pollen foraging behaviour of solitary Hawaiian bees revealed through molecular pollen analysis 
At high elevations in Haleakala, pollen was available from more than 12 species of flowering plants, but Hawaiian silversword (Argyroxiphium sandwicense subsp. macrocephalum) comprised 86% of all pollen samples removed from bee crops. At lower elevations in both parks, we only detected pukiawe (Leptecophylla (Styphelia) tameiameiae) pollen in Hylaeus crops despite the presence of other plant species in flower during our study.
 Furthermore, 100% of Hylaeus crops from which we successfully identified pollen contained native plant pollen. 

HC&S 2016 Out of Business End of Year

No more sugar from Hawai'i...I commend the financial risks; for the sake of the community, and for Maui's future.
Bio-remediation, and land cover is needed right now to stop the soil from going into the ocean...
I recommend forest planting immediately along all the edges of the fields; near highways, and roads- along with lines of trees going across the slopes.
Trees will absorb 67xs more rain water then grass, or plant cover.

Alexander &Baldwin Announces Transition Of Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company To A Diversified Farm Model


Sugar Company To A Diversified Farm Model

HONOLULU, Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. (NYSE:ALEX) today announced that it is transitioning out of farming sugar and will instead pursue a diversified agricultural model for its 36,000-acre Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company plantation on Maui. Sugar operations will be phased out by the end of 2016, and the transition to a new model will occur over a multi-year period. No immediate layoffs will result from today's announcement and approximately half of the 675 employees will be retained through the end of the sugar harvest, which is expected to be completed late in 2016. Beginning in March, employees will be laid off as their specific functions are completed. Under the new diversified model, the plantation is planned to be divided up into smaller farms with varied agricultural uses, potentially including energy crops, food crops, support for the local cattle industry, and the development of an agriculture park.

"A&B's roots literally began with the planting of sugar cane on 570 acres in Makawao, Maui, 145 years ago," said Stanley M. Kuriyama, A&B executive chairman. "Much of the state's population would not be in Hawaii today, myself included, if our grandparents or great-grandparents had not had the opportunity to work on the sugar plantations. A&B has demonstrated incredible support for HC&S over these many years, keeping our operation running for 16 years after the last sugar company on Maui closed its doors. We have made every effort to avoid having to take this action. However, the roughly $30 million Agribusiness operating loss we expect to incur in 2015, and the forecast for continued significant losses, clearly are not sustainable, and we must now move forward with a new concept for our lands that allows us to keep them in productive agricultural use."

"This is a sad day for A&B, and it is with great regret that we have reached this decision," said Christopher J. Benjamin, A&B president and chief executive officer, who ran HC&S as its general manager from 2009 to 2011. "Having had the privilege of working alongside the employees of HC&S for two years, I know firsthand the professionalism and dedication with which they perform their jobs. The longevity of the plantation is a testament to their resourcefulness and hard work. This transition will certainly impact these employees and we will do everything we can to assist them. The cessation of sugar operations also will have a significant impact on the Maui community and we will do our best to minimize that impact. A&B remains committed to Maui and will continue to be a significant corporate supporter of Maui charities and organizations."

Employee Transition & Support

A&B is committed to supporting its impacted employees. The Company will provide transition coordinators to assist HC&S employees in finding alternate employment opportunities. The coordinators will identify and coordinate available federal, state, county and private job assistance programs (including employment counseling, job training, financial counseling, job placement and education services). A&B will offer all employees enhanced severance and benefit packages. Retirement benefits accrued by eligible employees, retirees, and past employees will not be affected by the transition out of sugar. Additionally, the Company will consider displaced employees for positions in its new operations as they become available.

"We are very focused on helping our employees during this time," Benjamin said. "Many of our employees have dedicated their careers to HC&S and have followed in the footsteps of previous generations of family members that worked on the plantation. We are grateful for their years of service and we will support them through this transition period."

Transition to Diversified Agriculture "A&B is committed to looking for optimal productive agricultural uses for the HC&S lands," said Benjamin. "Community engagement, resource stewardship, food sustainability and renewable energy are all being considered as we define the new business model for the plantation. These are leading us toward a more diversified mix of operations."

The Company is evaluating several categories of potential replacement agricultural activities. These include energy crops, agroforestry, grass-finished livestock operations, diversified food crops, and orchard crops, among others.

HC&S has several test projects underway to further assess these opportunities, and the Company plans to expand the scope and scale of the trials during the coming year. Initial projects include:
Energy crops: Building upon its extensive experience with crop-to-energy production, HC&S has initiated crop trials to evaluate potential sources of feedstock for anaerobic conversion to biogas. This on-farm testing currently is being expanded from plot to field-scale and HC&S has entered into a confidential memorandum of understanding with local and national partners to explore market opportunities for biogas. HC&S also is assessing the potential of cultivating purpose-grown oilseed crops for biodiesel production and has entered into preliminary, but confidential, discussions with other bioenergy industry players to explore additional crop-to-energy opportunities.
Support for the local cattle industry: The Company is exploring the costs and benefits of irrigated pasture to support the production of grass-finished beef for the local market. HC&S has converted a test site of former sugar land to cultivated pasture and is working with Maui Cattle Company to conduct a grass-finishing pasture trial in 2016. High-quality grazing lands could enable Maui's cattle ranchers to expand their herds and keep more cattle in Hawaii for finishing on grass.
Food crops/Agriculture park: A&B plans to establish an agriculture park on former sugar lands in order to provide opportunities for farmers to access these agricultural lands and support the cultivation of food crops on Maui. HC&S employees will be given preference to lease lots from the company to start their own farming operations.

"Transitioning HC&S to a diversified agribusiness model underscores A&B's commitment to the community and our intention to keep these lands in active agricultural use," said Benjamin. "It will take time but, if successful, these efforts could support the goals of food and energy self-sufficiency for Hawaii, preserve productive agricultural lands, and establish new economic engines for Maui and the state."


Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company is the state's largest farm, with 36,000 acres under cultivation. The Company also generates enough electricity, primarily from renewable sources, to be 100% energy self-sufficient. For more information, please visit www.hcsugar.com.


Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. is a Hawaii-based public company, with interests in real estate development, commercial real estate, agriculture, materials and infrastructure construction. With ownership of over 88,000 acres in Hawaii, A&B is the state's fourth largest private landowner, and one of the state's most active real estate investors. The Company manages a portfolio comprising five million square feet of leasable space in Hawaii and on the U. S. Mainland and is the second largest owner of retail assets in the state. A&B also is Hawaii's largest materials company and paving contractor. Additional information about A&B may be found atwww.alexanderbaldwin.com.

Flood defence, or so we are told almost everywhere, is about how much concrete you can pour. It’s about not building houses in stupid places on the floodplain, and about using clever new engineering techniques to defend those already there(2). None of that is untrue, but it’s a small part of the story. To listen to the dismal debates of the past fortnight you could be forgiven for believing that rivers arise in the plains; that there is no such thing as upstream; that mountains, hills, catchments and watersheds are irrelevant to the question of whether or not homes and infrastructure get drowned.

The story begins with a group of visionary farmers at Pontbren, in the headwaters of Britain’s longest river, the Severn. In the 1990s they realised that the usual hill farming strategy – loading the land with more and bigger sheep, grubbing up the trees and hedges, digging more drains – wasn’t working. It made no economic sense, the animals had nowhere to shelter, the farmers were breaking their backs to wreck their own land.

So they devised something beautiful. They began planting shelter belts of trees along the contours. They stopped draining the wettest ground and built ponds to catch the water instead. They cut and chipped some of the wood they grew to make bedding for their animals, which meant that they no longer spent a fortune buying straw. Then they used the composted bedding, in a perfect closed loop, to cultivate more trees(3).

One day a government consultant was walking over their fields during a rainstorm. He noticed something that fascinated him: the water flashing off the land suddenly disappeared when it reached the belts of trees the farmers had planted. This prompted a major research programme, which produced the following astonishing results: water sinks into the soil under the trees at 67 times the rate at which it sinks into the soil under the grass(4). The roots of the trees provide channels down which the water flows, deep into the ground. The soil there becomes a sponge, a reservoir which sucks up water then releases it slowly. In the pastures, by contrast, the small sharp hooves of the sheep puddle the ground, making it almost impermeable: a hard pan off which the rain gushes.

One of the research papers estimates that, even though only 5% of the Pontbren land has been reforested, if all the farmers in the catchment did the same thing, flooding peaks downstream would be reduced by some 29%(5). Full reforestation would reduce the peaks by around 50%(6). For the residents of Shrewsbury, Gloucester and the other towns ravaged by endless Severn floods, that means, more or less, problem solved.

Did I say the results were astonishing? Well, not to anyone who has studied hydrology elsewhere. For decades the British government has been funding scientists working in the tropics, and using their findings to advise other countries to protect the forests or to replant trees in the hills, to prevent communities downstream from being swept away. But we forgot to bring the lesson home.
