Lisa Er and Tim Lynch, summing up some of the 10 years of GreenplanetFM program (Ultimo)
posted Thu December 12th 2013 @ 10:11 AM
Though environment health and consciousness runs through the program, we discuss the basic life needs of air, water and earth - soil & food.
Starting with air and the particulates of matter in cities such as Auckland and that due to the smallness of both the NZ population and the country, the wind is our default air conditioner in this country. That we are indeed very fortunate in this situation (some would say lazy).
However, we cannot avoid, deny or run away from what is perculating (some would say belching) out of Fukushima in Japan, and that is air born and water carried radiation from the defunct nuclear reactors that main stream media have been told to keep out of the headlines and out of the news.
The fact that Japan and the nuclear industry are joined at the nucleated hip and that the countries that surround the Pacific ocean are complicit in not taking the Japanese to the World Court is a travesty.
We move on to cover MSM (main stream media) and how it spins information and that our drinking water is being sanitised by chlorine (which also has a downside effect on our health) as well as we being mass medicated by fluoride. That Hamilton city ratepayers and citizens recently elected to come back into the 'fold of unknowningness' and continue to add fluoride once again to their water supply is yet another farce. So much so as to curtail their children from becoming more intellectually savvy than their parents, due to them not wanting to do any research on this subject what so ever. See Prof Paul Connett's startling fluoride research.
Aspartame and its dangers in Zero Coke and sugarless drinks, the NZ All Blacks rugby team involved in its promotion.
We move on to GE and GMO’s and that NZ still remains a GE Free Nation, but that Govt and Big Business are lock stepped in wanting NZ to become a GE contaminated nation as well as sabotaging our leadership role in being steadfast in the face of ethically bankrupt biotech corporations. Read More »

Theresa Grantham and Business with a Clear Conscience - Interviewed by Lisa Er (Ultimo)
posted Thu November 28th 2013 @ 11:36 AM
In today's globalized economy, most of the everyday products we buy, wear, and eat are produced with labour from the developing world.
But do we ever think of the story behind the products that we buy? Who planted the seed for our cotton clothing and sheets? Where did the seed come from? Was it a genetically engineered seed? What fertilisers, herbicides, and pesticides were used on the cotton? How did those affect the health of the farmer workers. How old were the workers? Who removed the seeds from the cotton boll and who processed them, wove them and made them into garments? Were they paid adequately for their labours? This is the story of the cotton trail.
Theresa Grantham a haute-couture, or high fashion consultant and business woman in New Zealand, knew at a certain level there was a better way to service the fashion industry with a clear conscience. After a profound visit to India, she set out to change the karma of clothing and ended up launching a fashion brand that acts as a laboratory for social innovation and transformation.
The result is Atma Vichara. Atma Vichara was born of an idea that simultaneously developed in the minds of a group of people dispersed across four corners of the globe. This diverse group of individuals was inspired by a notion of another way to do business; of a way to value the people who are working to make products that each and every one of us are surrounded by.
Atma means consciousness or awareness or the unfathomable intelligence. Vichara means inquiry into. So Atma Vichara means inquiry into consciousness itself. Read More »
Glen Atkinson ~ Biodynamic Specialist in Agriculture, Astrologer, Gardener, Homeopath & Philosopher (Ultimo)

Ranging over a wide variety of topics, that include complimentary and alternative health, the problems with chlorinated and fluoridated water. Biological agriculture as against chemical agriculture. Corporate control of chemicals and drugs, plus the galloping increase of corporate farming.
Our unhealthy common salt intake, lack of iodine is translating to global thyroid problems.
That five US corporations have virtually taken control of the world food chain, and use the WTO and the TPPA as mechanisms to tighten their grip.
He concludes with an overview of the USA and UK's astrological challenges that he says will become very evident over the next 18 months and how the US military appears only to go on the offensive when certain astrological configurations occur.
I asked Glen at the start of this interview to hit a number of balls out of the park and possibly he went one further and hit one, possibly two into near earth orbit ... Read More »
Tom Brown takes us down The Thorny Path of Truth - Interviewed by Lisa Er (Ultimo)
posted Thu November 14th 2013 @ 10:22 AM
Independent researcher in spiritual science and metaphysics Tom Brown questions our world view and looks at how it is sometimes based on historically inaccurate science.
Have we created our society from a faulty model? Have Newton, Darwin, and others, made incorrect assumptions that science is still based on today?
How do our belief systems play into this, and why do we need a paradigm shift to correct this? Is our collective unconscious actually creating the reality that we experience? Is life as the quantum physicists describe to us, or have they got it wrong as well?
Referring often to Rudolf Steiner’s Etheric Sciences, Tom talks about man’s descent into matter, and how people are living in an illusion. Just to challenge us he asserts that not only is the earth going around the sun, the sun is going around the earth.
This interview will not only provoke you, but will stimulate you to question everything you thought you ever knew. Read More »
Pauline Samways on Godwits, their habitat and migration (Ultimo)
posted Thu November 7th 2013 @ 2:47 PM
This extraordinary New Zealand migratory bird flies each autumn just before the cold and dark of winter all the way from NZ in the Southern hemisphere up via China and Korea to the Alaskan warmth and light of spring and the coming summer in the Northern hemisphere.
However, after laying their eggs and bringing up their young, the godwits then fly nonstop back around the curve of our planet - to NZ … a distance of 11,500 kilometers – without stopping, and for the ‘new born’s’ this is an astonishingly long distance voyage … and to an unknown destination too.
Now …. Imagine you are up in Alaska and autumn foreshadows the coming cold and darkness of winter and the godwits along the shorelines prepare for their epic journey south as they sense the prevailing winds and conditions and ready themselves for take off.
Finally lifting off to fly continuously hour after hour, the sun overhead will appear to track from east to west and after 12 or so hours the sun will set and darkness sets in - yet flying all night, up to an altitude of 2 or 3 kilometers above the earths surface, with starlight above them and the planet still turning on its axis, they will witness the sun rising in the east the next morning as they continue there arduous journey.
And with our planet still turning they will persist all day, all night flying without sleep or rest in a southerly direction – across the expansive Pacific ocean - continuously for another 6 days and nights ...
To finally swoop down into Miranda on the Firth of Thames in NZ, and safely land.
Having traversed 11,500 kilometes.
What an enormous ‘flight of passage!’ Read More »
Fluoride - Dr Paul Connett PhD. (Ultimo)
posted Mon November 4th 2013 @ 11:42 AM
Dr. Paul Connett, PhD, Emeritus Professor from St. Lawrence University USA. He is an, executive director of the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and its parent organization, the American Environmental Health Studies Project.
For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain. Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment.
In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children.
Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted.
Yet New Zealand Authorities are challenging Councils that want to keep being fluoride free or remove fluoride from the water supply.
And isn’t it a basic human right NOT to be mass medicated, even if some might think they are doing us a favour?
When the fluoridation of water began, there was little evidence for its long term safety (as for GMOs) and since then little attempt has been made to monitor its health effects systematically.
Because there are so many unanswered health questions, fluoridation of water must be considered an ongoing experimental procedure, and as such it is a violation of the Nuremberg Code, which forbids experimentation on humans without their informed consent. In Europe, nearly all countries have either never fluoridated their water or have ceased doing so.
Yet the incidence of tooth decay has declined just as much as in those countries that practice fluoridation. This fascinating interview with Dr Paul Connett, will raise alarm bells about many aspects of the mass medication of the population by fluoride and he challenges us to do something about it.
NOTE: This may be a repeat, but it has a NEW INTRODUCTION, covering what has happened in Hamilton over the last few months and why Hamiltonians would collectively vote to mass medicate themselves with chemicals that slowly over time actually alter the bodies chemistry and make up.

Steffan Browning ~ An Exposť on GE, Organics, Security Intelligence and Bio Security (Ultimo)
posted Thu October 24th 2013 @ 12:16 PM
Steffan Browning, Green Party Member of Parliament. Spokesperson on:
Organics, GE and GMO's, Fisheries, Agriculture, Bio-security and Forestry. PLUS, The Grand Daddy of them All: Security and Intelligence.
Steffan has been at the forefront of the New Zealand organics movement for more than twenty years. His aim is to have genuinely sustainable organics in New Zealand's food, fibre, forestry and fishing industries - which he states, needs to be integrated from a holistic perspective and 'also makes good business sense'.
Listen as Steffan divulges the challenges that organics face, on the front lines of GE untruths, agribusiness and the unknowingness of government of both holistic systems and sustainability.
Hear the most powerful and potent statement in NZ's Parliament for decades as Steffan covers the descent on Wellington of multiple layers of the global security apparatus that coincided with the 1st Reading of the GCSB Bill, it's knock-on effect and connecting the dots as to how NZ is cavorting with loss of its sovereignty, enabling the matrix to hover over, and hoover our fast losing innocence as a global moral compass - defender of democracy and citizen rights.

Dr Jim Salinger on Global Warming Affects - A revealing interview! (Ultimo)

Dr Jim Salinger: Global Warming, his new book, 'Living in a Warmer World' covering NZ Rainfall, Sea Levels, Glaciers, Fisheries, Soils and Crops etc
Ex head of NIWA NZ's National Institute of Water and Atmosphere as well as a member of, IPCC, and UN Climate Recipient for the Nobel Peace Prize 2007.
This interview also stretches the boundaries of Government action and inaction, Media and denial, having a holistic view point, including questions of geo engineering and chemtrails.
NOTE: Expression of predisposition. I do believe that our planet is warming, and in fever, as per the auditory Gaian introduction to this particular program. (Tim).
This interview is a critical overview of most of the challenges coming to face the 7 billion plus of humanity including the mega trillions of biota in our biosphere.
Our planet Gaia's, fever at present is such that she is shivering and icing up again at the North and South Poles, but towards both the tropic of Cancer and Capricorn our planet is increasingly suffering from heat with both Europe, the USA and Australia breaking record temperatures. And when 'she sweats' with flash flooding - it's also wrecking havoc across her surface.
Just like we breathe in and out and the tides ebb and flow, Jim says that the icing at the Poles are a temporary phase, more so in the Arctic and we will see more melting, in particular other extremes, but not necessarily as fast as originally anticipated.
This was one of the 'significant factors' that I wanted to cover in this interview. Statements that could be classified as alarmist, especially in the short term. Read More »
Phil Stevens on Complimentary Currencies & Alternative Economies in NZ (Ultimo)
posted Thu October 10th 2013 @ 10:23 AM
Why are alternative and complimentary currencies on this GreenplanetFM program being constantly emphasized? The reason is very clear, the global economic system is out of control, with bankers out of New York and London calling the shots (assisted by acquiescing politicians), and are printing money at will, leveraging bonds, hedge funds, derivatives, promissory notes and every sneaky, cunning ploy of chicanery being fostered on the unknowing public.
These snake oil banksters and hucksters are out to CON everyone who is unknowing, implying that everything is REALLY OK, that it is all under control, nothing to worry about - just keep buying. It's called keeping the status quo alive in an unsustainable consumptive and dishonest economy.
And you will never hear a squeak out of the Government, or any Government. Mums the word! (Shakespeare's Henry VI, Part 2, Act 1, Scene 2:' Seal up your lips and give no words but mum.'?
However, if things do slide and quickly and funds become scarce and money is in short supply, we have PLAN B, another method that is grass roots in intent and can be easily put in place. This simple 'Living Economies Educational Trust' could save communities across the country a lot of angst, frustration and even despair, enabling them to communicate with each other and at least put food on the table and also into the soil and assist in pulling the strings of community together towards an outcome of peace.
