  * GreenPlanetFM 104.6 *

  Every Thursday morning 8-9am 
     - with Tim Lynch in -      'Mobilising Consciousness'

 Assisted By: Lisa Er of The Awareness Party

  & John Coombs of Global Health Clinics


Auckland's one-hour environmental / health and consciousness programme, dedicated to interviewing leading edge experts, practitioners in their field, and people who are living examples of sustainability. 

GreenPlanetFM covers global to local subject matter that is basically ignored & not readily discussed in depth in NZ mainstream media.

It also encourages you to look beyond the news as well as organise at the grassroots level across the community so as to get back on the front foot and reclaim our localised sovereignty.

A resolute advocate for today's and tomorrow's children. 

 At present the TPPA, the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement is being touted as the way foward for New Zealand. This could not be further from the truth. It is 'a wolf in sheeps clothing' and sets us all up for Globalised Corporate Control. This SECRET agreement is based on 29 chapters of which only 4 are to do with trade. The other 25 are to do with Law and other 'legal agreements' to be able to lock countries down and have them eventually cede their sovereignty. The biggest challenge for NZ is having an unconcious media that bows to the corporate agenda, hence many NZer's a totally unaware of what is bearing down on them. If NZ goes, we lose the moral high ground as our planets barometer of goodwill, fair play and the role of nuclear free NZ being the emerging microcosm for the planetary macrocosm. Kia Kaha and Aroha. Stand Strong and Love.                                                                                                                                          HEADS UP for overseas readers of this web site. Mother Earth and the Sacred Feminine is under continuous assault at present and New Zealand too is on the battle lines, with coal mining, fraking, deep water oil drilling and sucking up of iron sands from the ocean floor. Note we have a 'business as usual government' that has cast a spell over the country implying that multi national corporations are going to save us - when the opposite is true. The TPPA being a very concerning component.                        

Note: That 11 humans are equal to one cow in their capacity to ingest and excrete.  A conservative estimate in the number of dairy cows in NZ at present are equal to 66 million people inhabiting NZ, the same population as the UK.

Salmon, huge problems with salmon farms, each one's 'waste' is the equivalent to a town of 40,000 people and wikipedia states there are 29 farms in NZ. Equivalent to 1,116,000 people.

Cows                           66  million

Salmon                        1.1 million 

NZ human population    4.5 million

Equivalent                   71.6 million human beings in NZ

This does not include the 3.9 million beef cattle or sheep at 31.2 million.

There is no discussion or debate in NZ about this!

ps, Just as well cows don't drive cars, or want their own home and love electronic equipment!  Surprised

article linkKevin Hester speaks to Lisa Er on Abrupt Climate Change and Surrounding Issues (Ultimo)
posted Fri November 27th 2015 @ 7:53 AM

Should we be more concerned about terrorists or climate change?

What a question!

Climate change can kill with efficacy as huge storms hit with frightening intensity and after the winds go, leave a legacy of flooding and landslides.

More slowly, rising seas will gradually erase whole nations, and droughts will kill many thousands, and even cause wars over resources.

Western governments, however, are making it clear which they think is the issue to worry about. Climate change is taking a back seat, even when there has been a cyclone (cyclone Haiyan) that killed 6300 people in 2013.

However in early December 2015 the largest UN summit of the decade is to take place in Paris. The big question is will the delegates get the message to keep fossil fuel in the ground and to finance a transition to renewable energy by 2050? This is the aim of Even that seems too little too late. Read More »

Also known as the backbone of LegaSea, Scott's passion is to make certain that the vision of 'more fish in the water for future generations' is not something that we just talk about – he wants it to become our reality. He is an active environmentalist, a good fisherman, a talented networker, a successful businessman, a green-fingered gardener & a loving family man.

“We have to claim our oceans and fisheries back before it is too late.”

There are multiple challenges to our fisheries here in NZ.  We all know that due to industrial netting, fish numbers are falling, some spectacularly and this is happening both globally and locally. This also includes dwindling stocks of crustaceans as well as shellfish. At the same time we are having to deal with poorer water quality such as increasing acidic levels as well as an increase in the overall NZ population especially in Auckland who are keen consumers of fish.

This is intensifying pressure on the local commons, which translates to the area of sea that all fish-life inhabit and that for the last so many thousands of years there has been a customary right, for anyone to go down to the beach or get into a boat and catch a fish or three, to feed their family and friends.

This interview is in many ways is an exposé of the Fishing Industry in NZ, which is the fourth largest fisheries in area on our planet! Read More »

article linkDita De Boni on Journalists Creed: Very Independent, Always Questioning, Always Probing, Asking Why (Ultimo)

Since 1995 Dita worked for the NZ Herald the largest newspaper in NZ, she is currently a TV Producer for TV One.

"Journalists need to be very independent, always questioning, always probing always saying, why? That’s the journalist's creed.”

Whereas people like Nicky Hager (author of Dirty Politics & many other books) who stands up and asks questions then states the facts, and is painted very effectively as a troublemaker and stirrer - a left wing radical by the government when in reality he is just doing good journalism - that is all he is doing even if the facts are 100% true, he is dismissed as a radical, out to bring down the government.  

Is our government becoming so contemptuous of people? Dita states that if the National Party put people before all other considerations, she would be far more favourable to them, but people across the board are seemingly being factored out of the equation in favour of monetarist considerations. Putting people at the centre of what they do, is the foundation of how Dita wishes to see governments govern - without compromise. Read More »

Yelena’s methods integrate ancient knowledge and contemporary quantum sciences, providing simple, elegant and practical opportunities for wellness, for young and old.

Yelena says that people suffer because they have forgotten their true origins and lost connection with the deepest part of themselves. Unhappiness, loneliness and lack of joy are the effects of this disconnection, not to mention the personal and planetary health issues we are experiencing today.

We each have the power to change and make a difference. It all starts inside our own consciousness. Read More »

Should journalists be part of the solution, and not part of the problem?

Freedom of the press describes the right to gather, publish, and distribute information and ideas without government restriction.  This right encompasses freedom from censorship, but does our media really have complete freedom in New Zealand? We need to ask this question when we see the government’s response to Nicky Hager’s investigative journalism, and Channel 7 is removed from TV in spite of having half a million viewers. A journalist was recently no longer required by the Herald after writing an honest critique of the TPPA, and what happened to Campbell Live and why?

David Robie, Professor of Communication Studies and Pacific Journalism, Director of the Pacific Media Centre, journalist and author asks these questions and more.

After seven years of negotiations on the TPPA, Ministers from twelve countries have reached agreement, but all is not lost as it has not been signed and sealed. Even though Tim Groser and other governments Ministers reached agreement, the TPPA has not been finalised. There are further steps before ratification and many ways that the TPPA could still fail.

Under the US Fast Track law, President Obama has to give 90 days notice to Congress before he can sign the TPPA, and must make the text public 30 days into that period.

Meanwhile, members of the US Congress and the corporate lobbyists who are ‘cleared advisers’ will get to see the deal. They will be seeking to change what they don’t like and making new demands. That will be the first of many opportunities for them to seek to rewrite the ‘final’ deal. So the earliest that the TPPA could actually be signed is next February, and that would assume that all governments agree with the final tweaking. So there is time to mobilize!

James’s aim is to bring community based grassroots organisations into fruition at the same time optimising conscious choices as to how we work and meld together as self actualised team members.He sees an immediacy in doing this.

He brings people together to mesh them into a team, by using practical components including self reflection and meditation so as to have real grounded intentions. Be it through engineering to horticulture, he works to share skills and create products.

However, his message is that to make things happen we have to do them at grassroots level - here and now. His local project up in central North Auckland on the East coast is that in 18 months time he will show people that they can come and start working immediately as a localised opportunity in action.

He maintains that if the community is not on board with their heart it simply does not happen, as he found out when working up in Shanghai, China for a year and that another important quality is that we have to be an active part of our community with no separation. To be inclusive is so important.

article linkRon Hepworth - 20 Years After Sailing to Mururoa Atoll to Protest the Nuclear Bomb Testing (Ultimo)

It is the 20th year anniversary of the yacht flotilla to the Mururoa atoll to halt French Nuclear tests.

New Zealand has always been an outspoken critic of Nuclear testing and nuclear weapons. In total, 175 explosions took place at Moruroa and Fangataufa, in French Polynesia - 41 of which were atmospheric.

In 1973,the New Zealand and Australian governments took France to the International Court of Justice in an attempt to ban the tests. France ignored the court’s ruling that they cease testing.

The third New Zealand Labour government, led by Norman Kirk, responded by sending two navy frigates, HMNZS Canterbury and Otago, into the test area, with a Cabinet Minister on board. Prime Minister Kirk put all his Cabinet ministers’ names into a hat and drew out the name of Fraser Colman, the minister of immigration and mines. He sailed from Auckland on 25 June aboard the Otago, which carried a crew of 242. A month later the ship was at Mururoa, and those on board witnessed the first atmospheric test.

Fraser Colman transferred to the Canterbury when it arrived to relieve the Otago on 25 July, and he and the crew of the Canterbury saw the second French atmospheric test on Mururoa. These protests achieved some success: in 1974 the new French president, Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, ordered that the tests move underground.

So when the ‘underground’ tests began in 1995, numerous New Zealanders decided on a yacht flotilla to sail to the Mururoa testing ground and doth protest. Read More »

A group behind a web presence called You Being You, an online home for sharing wisdom to connect us with our true nature, ourselves and others.

One of the important gifts of ‘You Being You’ is that they have a wide experience and the skills to assist people address the psychological challenges of a world in transition.

That includes understanding your inside nature and focusing on easily understood vocabulary to express your feelings. Because one of the greatest challenges we have today is to be able to vocalise our feelings in such a way as to be clearly understood. There is a gigantic chasm especially among boys and men in finding the vocabulary to express their needs.

So what is it that affects us in a tragedy that directly afterwards people instinctively lean into each other for support and comfort?
