I don't know how many end of the world days I have gone through but another is coming on the 21st of December. It looks like they have got the dates wrong and it really won't end as the Mayan's reference dates after the 21st. I guess some people like to be alarmists. It is a bit concerning when these alarmists don't check the facts and some people become distort. The same happens with climate change, agriculture, health alarmists.

“By cheating and deceiving his organic farming customers, Mr. Townsley took advantage of their trust and undermined the integrity of an entire industry,” said Haag. It is no different in Australia as there are organic fertiliser companies doing the same thing. Hopefully the organic community can flush out these companies so it isn't ruined for the honest certified organic suppliers. You can find a list of good certified suppliers at http://www.ofa.org.au/ .

Nice short film on the reason we need others to create products. Isolationists can't even make a pencil. Nothing wrong with being a isolationists just don't force others to be via laws/regulations/taxes. We have some huge challenges ahead in agriculture and we need the best people in the world to solve these issues.
