Investors Behind Doomsday Seed Vault May Provide Clues to Its Purpose (Part 2)

(NaturalNews) It's got all the exciting elements of a science fiction novel. A seed bank as strong as a fortress built into the side of a mountain in the remote arctic wilderness built for the purpose of preserving food sources in the event of a disaster. Among the specifications for the bank are dual blast-proof doors with motion sensors, two airlocks, and one-meter thick walls of steel reinforced concrete.

"If you control the oil you control the country; if you control the food you control the population." -- Henry Kissinger

Built on the island of Spitsbergen in the Barents Sea near the Arctic Ocean in the country of Norway, a group of wealthy corporations has invested millions of dollars in their project named the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. The mission statement is: "So that crop diversity can be conserved for the future".

The seed vault will have the capacity to house up to 4.5 million different varieties of seeds from all over the planet. The Doomsday Vault will officially open on February 26, 2008. There will be no full time staff necessary to operate the seed vault. It has been designed to run itself independent of human direction. Svalbard will be managed and overseen by the Rome-based Global Crop Diversity Trust.

The question begs asking - Why the need for this super fortress seed bank when adequate protective measures for the earth's seeds already exist around the world? Delving into the details of this project is an interesting undertaking.

The group of investors includes The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, Monsanto Corporation, Syngenta Foundation, and the Government of Norway. Both Monsanto Corporation (US based) and Syngenta Foundation (Swiss based) are leading agricultural companies active in the development of genetically modified (GMO) plant seeds and related agricultural chemicals.

A little background on some of these groups.

The Rockefeller Foundation has been involved in and influencing agribusiness for almost a century. Back in the 1960s the Rockefeller Foundation and two other groups joined together to create the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in the Philippines. By the 1970s, the IRRI along with other Rockefeller-created research centers combined to form a global Consultive Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).

CGIAR was developed carefully with several key participants. The long term goal being to turn science into the service of eugenics. Eugenics (later called genetics) is the pursuit of selective breeding of the human race. At this point, with CGIAR (The Rockefeller Foundation) now being in the position of sizable influence on global agriculture, the plan unfolds.

With Rockefeller Foundation and Ford Foundation financing, CGIAR began "educating" third world agricultural scientists in the concepts of modern agribusiness. This laid the foundation for the eventual introduction of GMO "Gene Revolution" in developing countries.

The Rockefeller Foundation was also involved in the Green Revolution of the 1940s. The Green Revolution was going to solve world hunger by targeting third world countries to help them develop their agricultural processes.

In the 1950s, we were first introduced to the term "agribusiness" as opposed to "agriculture". The wheels were set firmly in motion to turn the production of food away from the traditional family farmer to corporate multinational control.

An essential ingredient to this plan is none other than the hybrid seed. The key to hybrid seeds is their inability to reproduce. They are designed to not multiply. Seeds were originally designed to give yields similar to the parent seeds year after year. Not so of hybrid seeds. Subsequent yields are significantly lower and of lower quality. Declining yield necessitates farmers buying seed year after year to assure high yields. The big seed companies were now in perfect control as no smaller group could produce the hybrid but them. This was the foundation of the GMO seed revolution.

The four largest plant breeders in the agribusiness world are Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta, and Dow Chemical. Monsanto currently holds a patent (together with the US Government) for a plant "terminator" or Genetic Use Restriction Technology (GURT). The advantages of the Terminator technology are obvious. Seeds yield only one harvest. Period. This forces farmers (the third world nations) to return to the seed companies year after year to replenish their seed supplies so that they can grow food to feed their people. Within 10 years, this could create a complete monopoly for these seed companies.

Through the Green Revolution, modern agriculture technology (the use of chemical fertilizers and hybrid seeds) created a dependence on US agribusiness and chemical companies. As the years went by, problems arose from the use of chemical pesticides. Also, the lack of crop diversity stemming from hybrid seed use decreased soil fertility. The exciting initial high yields began to diminish.

Financing this agribusiness became big business. Soon the business of large loans became a necessity as farmers in the third world countries needed to pay for the massive amounts of chemical fertilizers needed to sustain their agriculture. Large land owners were able to attain loans; smaller peasants were forced to borrow from the private sector at terms that eventually put them out of business.

The Gates Foundation now enters the scene as it joins forces with the Rockefeller Foundation on a new project in Africa called The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA). AGRA is filled with board members from both the Rockefeller and Gates Foundations. Africa, with its fertile soil, is the next logical target for the GMO campaign. However, the African government is leery of the GMO technology. The Rockefeller Foundation has been trying for years, unsuccessfully, to promote GMOs in Africa. Look for Monsanto to possibly have created a solution to this dilemma with a program called "Seeds of Hope", however. They will be providing small farmers with their patented GMO seeds.

Syngenta is currently focusing on Nairobi and is developing a GMO insect-resistant maize product.

Time to put some pieces in place. The Rockefellers' influence in agribusiness goes all the way back. Currently we have both Gates and Rockefeller joining forces in Africa to get the GMO-based agribusiness established there. The Doomsday vault has been created and is being guarded by the GMO Giants.

Previously mentioned CGIAR currently controls most of the private seed banks around the world. This amounts to more than 6.5 million varieties of seeds (about a third of which are "distinct"). Back to our quote of Mr. Kissinger from the beginning: "If you control the oil you control the country; if you control the food you control the population." Can the development of these GMO seeds be the basis of a form of biological warfare? The basics of eugenics are eliminating undesirable bloodlines. The Rockefeller Foundation has had a distinct hand in this activity in recent history. Only time will tell if the Svalbard Global Seed Vault is the latest part of a master plan.
