Default Monsanto win "Nobel Prize of Agriculture"

http://action.sumofus.org/a/world-fo...ngenta/?sub=fb (I apologise in advance for the stupid bolding of random sentences as if that adds something to the article)

Looks like Monsanto have won the coveted World Food Prize for their work in poisoning the masses. Just as I thought people were starting to come around and then this!

Well. Let the 'illuminated' have some more fun before they're going down. First Obummer now this.

It oddly comforts me to see that their humor doesn't advance. They are stuck in their mode of existence. Good for us.

Don't you have to be nominated for a Nobel Prize ??

Never heard of a Nobel Prize for Agriculture, did they make it up and nominate each other. ? Nothing would surprise me .

Thinking the same, chicos. So, looked it up; Nobel Prize website has scanty info; wiki was more flushed out.

"Nobel wrote several wills during his lifetime. He composed the last over a year before he died, signing it at the Swedish–Norwegian Club in Paris on 27 November 1895. To widespread astonishment, Nobel's last will specified that his fortune be used to create a series of prizes for those who confer the "greatest benefit on mankind" in physics, chemistry, peace, physiology or medicine, and literature. Nobel bequeathed 94% of his total assets, 31 million SEK (c. US$186 million, €150 million in 2008), to establish the five Nobel Prizes.

In 1968, Sveriges Riksbank celebrated its 300th anniversary by donating a large sum of money to the Nobel Foundation to be used to set up a prize in honor of Nobel. The following year, the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences was awarded for the first time. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences became responsible for selecting laureates. The first laureates for the Economics Prize were Jan Tinbergen and Ragnar Frisch "for having developed and applied dynamic models for the analysis of economic processes." Although not a Nobel Prize, it is intimately identified with the other awards; the laureates are announced with the Nobel Prize recipients, and the Prize in Economic Sciences is presented at the Swedish Nobel Prize Award Ceremony. The Board of the Nobel Foundation decided that after this addition, it would allow no further new prizes."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Prize

But wait.

The World Food Prize is not a Nobel Prize. Imo, more like a faux Nobel Prize.


The World Food Prize
The World Food Prize Foundation

ABOUT The World Food Prize was conceived by Dr. Norman E. Borlaug, recipient of the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize. Since 1986, The World Food Prize has honored outstanding individuals who have made vital contributions to improving the quality, quantity or availability of food throughout the world. Laureates have been recognized from Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Cuba, Denmark, Ethiopia, India, Mexico, Sierra Leone, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United Nations and the United States. In 1990, Des Moines businessman and philanthropist John Ruan assumed sponsorship of The Prize and established The World Food Prize Foundation, located in Des Moines, Iowa.


But it gets deeper and dirtier. As they say, follow the money.
In another search, I found this:

Thom Hartmann has an article about this.
And in it he references wiki as saying:

"In 2008, the World Food Prize Foundation accepted a $5 million contribution from Monsanto Company"."

He also says:
"If that wasn't baffling enough, the founder of Syngenta, the same biotech giant joining Bayer in suing Europe to keep selling bee-killing pesticides, will also win the prize -- and with it, a share of the $250,000 prize money. We cannot allow this prize to legitimize frankenfoods and bee killers. The ceremony is in less than two weeks, so we need to act now."

http://www.thomhartmann.com/forum/20...lture-monsanto



Apparently, there's a petition to The World Food Prize Organization to
"not sully the World Food Prize by giving it to Monsanto's Robert Fraley and Syngenta's Mary-Dell Chilton on World Food Day."

http://action.sumofus.org/a/world-fo...ngenta/?sub=tw

But that's not exactly the same thing as protesting a financial and meritorious prize to a company that is hell bent on polluting and damaging the world's food supply, imo.

Yes by "Nobel prize of agriculture", they're using it as a metaphor for highest award in agriculture. Just as the nobel prize is the highest award in science.

Done a bit more reading myself syxx, no intention of repeating what you have but this prize is for individuals as I understand. This group are scientists turned chemical company executives.

The World Food Prize as set up seemed based on extremely good principles, what a pity it has degenerated to this. Money talking as usual, does every man have his price ? (Of course using the word 'Nobel' to give an added sense of prestige in the article !)

The World Food Prize

The World Food Prize is the foremost international award recognizing the accomplishments of individuals who have advanced human development by improving the quality, quantity, or availability of food in the world.

The World Food Prize is a $250,000 award formally presented at the Laureate Award Ceremony in mid-October, on or around World Food Day, in conjunction with the Borlaug Dialogue international symposium.

Nominations are sought of an individual or individuals having demonstrated exceptional achievement in any field involved in enhancing food production and distribution and increasing food availability and accessibility to those most in need. Any academic or research institution, private or public organization, corporate entity, or governmental unit may submit a nomination for The World Food Prize.

GMO Battle Marks Choice of 2013 World Food Prize Winners


WASHINGTON, DC, July 2, 2013 (ENS) – The 2013 World Food Prize has gone to three scientists turned chemical company executives who pioneered the development of genetically modified organisms, GMOs. For the first time, the jury's selection has been met with "shock and outrage" from sustainable food and environmental advocates across the world.

World Food Prize Foundation president Kenneth Quinn responds that because “climate volatility is a game changer for farmers from Iowa to India” the biotech pioneers were selected to receive the prize to stimulate debate about “whether it would be possible to feed all of the people on our planet without biotechnology and genetically modified crops, especially given the dramatic challenges farmers may face from climate volatility.”

This year marks the 27th anniversary of the $250,000 World Food Prize, which recognizes individuals who have advanced human development by improving the quality, quantity or availability of food in the world.

Great addition, chicos.
Scientists turned company executives? How disappointing.

Not nearly as disappointing a 'shock and outrage', which should be a many times magnified response, in truth.

Because in 50 years the legacy of this madness of GM organisms and GM food will then be seen clearly.
It's all going to end in tears.
