But folks go nuts with it and spray enough to cause the fields to glow in the dark.
... patented seed that they sue people for having in their fields when the bugs, bird and wind put the seeds there...
However, the big corporate farmers don't care; they delegate the spraying to a manager that tell the employee to go spray. The employee doesn't care either, he just takes off and sprays.
Greenpeace makes the world a better place .... I'm not sure.It's an organisation that would have a major negative effect on the world as we know it if they had the power to complete their politics.1) They promote organic grown food and work against the use of pesticids.If we dropped pesticids and industrial produced fergilizers we would see a crop yield decrease of minimum 1/3. People will hunger.2) They work against use of GMO foods.Minimum 80% of all soya is GMO at the moment - along with other crops. Major parts of Asia will see massive hunger if GMO was dropped. Prices on meat from live stock would also sky rocket.
The central valley has no outlet to the sea and ALL rainwater is channeled and used in farming.
about 3kg of natural uranium can power the entire USA with surplus energy. I like those numbers.
That is factually incorrect. The Central Valley has huge river systems (Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers being the two largest) that drains naturally through the San Francisco Bay to the sea. Some of the water is pumped into canal systems and reused for irrigation and also export to the L.A. basin, but most rain fall and snow pack drains to sea.http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://aquadoc.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341bf80a53ef01156fc693be970b-800wi&imgrefurl=http://aquadoc.typepad.com/waterwired/2009/04/the-baydelta-imbroglio.html&h=873&w=720&sz=228&tbnid=XRGjVgnLFfjjdM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=74&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dcalifornia%2Bwater%2Bsystem%2Bmap%26tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=california+water+system+map&docid=iOI6B_hWJn5tzM&sa=X&ei=xPS9TsnECsSOiAKZ-cnzAg&ved=0CDIQ9QEwAw&dur=4953Lefty
