GridFree and Self-Sufficient. The hope of many for the future is to be less dependent on the just-in-time system that keeps every shop and supermarket stocked with out-of-season fruits & veg, processed foods, and tasteless meat from animals that are cruelly battery-farmed. While it would be cleaner and healthier to be able to eat wild meat from animals that are genuinely 'free-range' and running around in the countryside as they are meant to be, it is impossible for most people who live in urban areas. But that does not mean that getting hold of genuinely 'free-range' and 'organic' meat is totally impossible ...

Many good butchers shops are increasingly stocking 'wild' meats. And while keeping a few chickens in the backyard is something that was fairly common only a few decades ago, it is something that is making a definite come-back as we enter the 21st century. The skills necessary to raise animals for your own consumption were passed down over countless generations within every family in almost every country in the world, and they have not been completely forgotten - even in the industrial societies most of us live in today.

That the iPod generation will find it difficult to even conceive of doing such a thing is not surprising because they have generally never seen it done in their lifetimes - so far. However, global situations are changing fast, and as we have now passed what is known as "PEAK OIL", the present generation finds more and more people beginning to look for ways in which to access quality meat from animals which have been treated humanely, and have not been transported dead or alive over hundreds and thousands of miles before they arrive at their tables.

2010 Reality Check

The recent summit meeting in Copenhagen was NOT about so-called anthropogenic (man-made) global warming. It was simply about new ways to tax everyone in the whole world. The 'solutions' that were proposed by the leaders of all the countries that attended were desperate efforts to save their respective centralised energy grids. ONLY with centralised energy generation and distribution can consumers be taxed.

What those goverments don't want to see is a movement towards genuine self-sufficiency, where 'MICRO-GENERATION' replaces the centralised national grids. What they really fear is the fact that they simply cannot tax you if you don't consume the commodities that are centrally controlled - hence the CO2 scam and The Great Global Warming Swindle.

Now that the integrity of many of the IPCC Assessment Reports, and especially their 'Summary for Policymakers' documents are coming under independent scrutiny, the dishonest and unscientific manner in which these publications were compiled is becoming ever clearer. An example of this is the January 2010 revelation that the Himalayan glaciers overall are NOT MELTING, and will NOT BE GONE BY 2035.

Furthermore, the glaciers in the mountains of New Zealand have been expanding for a number of years, even during those years that the global warming disinformation networks were telling us were the warmest since records began - or some similar nonsense.

Some of the books and information sources on this page were compiled and written when the CO2 scam and the great global warming swindle were at their height and their disinformation networks were in full swing. This means that many of the authors were influenced by the climate change disinformation that the whole world has been bombarded with over the past few decades.

Nevertheless, the many and varied brilliantly practical ideas on how to become genuinely self-sufficient are still as valid now as they were before the "ClimateGate" scandal erupted in November 2009. Simply ignore the global warming stuff and get on with the job...

Below are a small selection of books which contain practical, down-to-earth instructions of how to go about raising livestock in both urban and rural areas. Books that have been written by people who have taken the first step to becoming self-sufficient in animal produce, and by people who have spent most of their lives raising livestock in many different circumstances in the industrialsed world and beyond ...

"The Medea Hypothesis:
Is Life on Earth Ultimately Self-Destructive?"

by
Peter Ward

Amazon.co.uk

"In The Medea Hypothesis, renowned paleontologist Peter Ward proposes a revolutionary and provocative vision of life's relationship with the Earth's biosphere--one that has frightening implications for our future, yet also offers hope. Using the latest discoveries from the geological record, he argues that life might be its own worst enemy.

This stands in stark contrast to James Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis--the idea that life sustains habitable conditions on Earth. In answer to Gaia, which draws on the idea of the "good mother" who nurtures life, Ward invokes Medea, the mythical mother who killed her own children. Could life by its very nature threaten its own existence?

According to the Medea hypothesis, it does. Ward demonstrates that all but one of the mass extinctions that have struck Earth were caused by life itself. He looks at our planet's history in a new way, revealing an Earth that is witnessing an alarming decline of diversity and biomass--a decline brought on by life's own "biocidal" tendencies. And the Medea hypothesis applies not just to our planet--its dire prognosis extends to all potential life in the universe.

Yet life on Earth doesn't have to be lethal. Ward shows why, but warns that our time is running out.

Breathtaking in scope, The Medea Hypothesis is certain to arouse fierce debate and radically transform our worldview. It serves as an urgent challenge to all of us to think in new ways if we hope to save ourselves from ourselves.

For those comforted by the notion of a benevolent Gaia working to sustain life on the planet, Ward's Medea is a nightmare, one that has recurred many times in Earth's history and is coming again soon, unless we take action to combat the self-annihilating tendency of the biosphere."

Peter Ward's many books include the highly acclaimed "Rare Earth: Why Complex Life Is Uncommon in the Universe" and "Under a Green Sky". He is professor of biology and Earth and space sciences at the University of Washington, and an astrobiologist with NASA.

"Chickens In Your Backyard: A Beginner's Guide"

Amazon.co.uk

"Your backyard can be the source of the best eggs and meat you've ever tasted. The answer is chickens--endearing birds that require but a modest outlay of time, space and food.

As they learned to raise chickens, Gail and Rick Luttmann came to realize the need for a comprehensive but clear and nontechnical guide. Their book covers all the basics in a light and entertaining sytle, from housing and feeding through incubating, bringing up chicks, butchering, and raising chickens for show.

Througout the book, the Luttmanns express their wonder at the personalities of chickens--the role of brash protector played by roosters, and the instinctive motherliness of the hens. Given some freedom and attention, these birds can become much more than the egg-and-meat machines of commercial hatcheries and broiler factories. Chickens provide backyard farmers with enjoyable pastime, as well as a supply of good food."

This is comprehensive and non-technical book covering the following: general goat health, welfare, behaviour and related management issues; principal diseases and abnormalities affecting goats - considers their causes, main diagnostic signs, treatment and prevention; recognizing abnormal behaviour as an early indicator of ill-health; the importance of goat keepers establishing good working relationships with their vets; poisoning and diseases that can be transmitted between goats and man."

"This fascinating book is a valuable guide for farmers and the general public concerned about the overuse of nonnatural medicine, herbicides, and insecticides in farm management and animal husbandry. The author, Juliette de Baïracli Levy, offers detailed directions for treating all farm animals with natural methods, while stating her evidence that "mechanized" farming methods have led to the demise of domesticated animals' overall health.

She asserts that poor and inadequate natural habitat, unnatural feeding practices, and a reliance on medicine to fight individual symptoms of disease without addressing the whole animal have weakened farm animals' innate disease-fighting ability.

Her argument for a return to reliance on the natural and away from the synthetic and artificial rearing and feeding methods of farm animals becomes more urgent and relevant given the outbreaks of "mad cow disease" and other ailments caused by these practices."

"In her engaging though sometimes preachy new book, Kingsolver recounts the year her family attempted to eat only what they could grow on their farm in Virginia or buy from local sources.

The book's bulk, written and read by Kingsolver in a lightly twangy voice filled with wonder and enthusiasm, proceeds through the seasons via delightful stories about the history of their farmhouse, the exhausting bounty of the zucchini harvest, turkey chicks hatching and so on. Her daughter Camille contributes recipes, meal plans and an enjoyable personal essay in a clear voice.

Hopp, Kingsolver's husband and an environmental studies professor, provides dry readings of the sidebars that have him playing Dr. Scientist, as Kingsolver notes in an illuminating interview on the last disc. Though they may skip some of the more moralizing tracks, Kingsolver's fans and foodies alike will find this a charming, sometimes inspiring account of reconnecting with the food chain."
