Alexander Hamilton
10States, your info sounds right except with regard to Hamilton. The Federalists were taken over by Anglophile Tories, it seems, but Hamilton was not a Torie. The national bank and economic policies he promoted were meant to prevent Britain from regaining control of the U.S. economy by dumping etc. Private banks can be taken over by enemies, so a national bank was meant to prevent that. The U.S. could not afford to let its enemy, Britain, control its economy. The U.S. used to oppose monopolies, which harm the economy, but globalists have largely suppressed such opposition since the 1960s.

Where’s the Evidence Proving TSA’s Backscatter Scanners are Safe? Nowhere
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2012/08/29.aspx
    Two years ago, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) filed a lawsuit to suspend the deployment of body scanners at US airports, pending an independent review. On July 15, 2011, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the TSA had violated the Administrative Procedures Act by implementing body scanners as a primary screening method without first undertaking public notice and comment rulemaking. The Court ordered the agency to "promptly" undertake the proper rulemaking procedures
    The TSA has so far defied the court’s order. On July 17, 2012, EPIC again asked the D.C. Circuit court of appeals to compel the agency to comply with the law, and the court has now demanded the TSA respond by August 30
    Both houses of Congress filed bills this year demanding that the TSA and DHS produce proof of their safety claims with an independent laboratory study
    At the end of last year, the EU banned all scanning that expose the public to ionizing radiation, even if the exposure is miniscule
    No verifiable, independent scientific testing of the safety of the backscatter scanners has been made, and some scientists believe the high quality images produced cannot possibly be obtained with the low levels of radiation described, and that the actual level may be 45 times higher than what the manufacturer is claiming

    Triclosan, a high production volume ingredient used as a bactericide in personal care products such as toothpaste and deodorant, has been linked to heart disease and heart failure in a new study
    Researchers also exposed individual human muscle cells (from heart and skeletal muscles) to a triclosan dose similar to everyday-life exposure, and this, too, disrupted muscle function and caused both heart and skeletal muscles to fail
    Triclosan has also been linked to disruption of hormone function
    Triclosan is listed on product ingredient labels, so you can easily check to see if it is there before deciding on a purchase
- This site http://www.beyondpesticides.org/antibacterial/products.htm has a list of products containing Triclosan.
- Here is the list of Soaps to avoid: Dial® Liquid handsoap and bodywash; Tea Tree Therapy™ Liquid Soap; Clearasil® Daily Face Wash; Dermalogica® Skin Purifying Wipes; Clean & Clear Foaming Facial Cleanser; DermaKleen™ Antibacterial Lotion Soap; CVS Antibacterial Soap, Ultra Concentrated Dawn Antibacterial Dishsoap, Kimcare Antibacterial Clear Soap, Bath and Body Works Antibacterial Hand Soaps, Gels and Foaming Sanitizers.
- Many other personal care products, toys etc also contain it. See the list.

An Open Letter to Consumer Reports: 10 Misinformation Hazards in Your “10 Surprising Dangers of Vitamins and Supplements” Article
http://healthfreedoms.org
- Submitted by Intelligentactile on August 23, 2012 – 3:37 pm
By James J. Gormley
- It is personally disappointing for me that Consumer Reports, the flagship of the respected marketplace-empowerment organization, Consumers Union, has once again seen fit to arm the American consumer with detrimental misinformation regarding safe, beneficial food supplements.
- In the alarmist piece which appears in the September 2012 issue, the anti-supplement subtitle reads: “Don’t assume they’re safe because they’re all natural.”
- Here are the “10 Surprising Dangers” along with some accurate information and perspective:
- “1. Supplements are not risk free.” [They're nearly so.]
With 3,000 deaths and 128,000 hospitalizations a year from food poisoning, it is clear that nothing in life is risk-free, but we already knew this. It would be of better service to do an expose' on the dangers of properly prescribed pharmaceuticals, which injure over 1 million and kill over 100,00 Americans each year in hospitals alone. The subtitle on a prescription drugs-focused article could read: “Don’t assume they’re safe because they’re FDA-approved.”
- The fact of the matter is that food supplements are inherently benign and pharmaceuticals are inherently dangerous; they are part of a completely different risk paradigm. With the millions of supplements sold and safely used every year, dietary supplements have an enviable consumer safety record.
- Since the 1994 enactment of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), FDA has had the authority to remove any dietary supplement from the market if FDA shows that it presents “a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury” or that it contains “a poisonous or deleterious substance which may render it injurious to health.” In fact, the FDA can act immediately against any product that poses an “imminent hazard to public health or safety.” With the passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in 2011, the FDA’s mandatory recall authority was affirmed and expanded.
- Recently released data from risk-management expert Ron Law confirmed that food supplements are by far the safest substances that people are exposed to daily ( http://tinyurl.com/ron-law-data ).
- “2. Some supplements are really prescription drugs.” [Lie.]
Supplements are a class of food, not drugs, so drugs masquerading as supplements is a drug adulteration problem best handled by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), something which I and Citizens for Health have been calling for since early 2010 ( http://tinyurl.com/dea-should-take-over ), which is now being supported by industry as well ( http://tinyurl.com/dea-and-steroids ).
- “3. You can overdose on vitamins and minerals.” [Exaggeration.]
With only a few exceptions (e.g., iron, selenium, zinc, vitamin A), even with the dosages found in high-potency supplements there is a window of safety on supplements of several hundred percent; in fact, most supplements are so safe that no upper limit can even be determined. What we really have to worry about are the over 13,000 truly dangerous prescription drugs on the market with known side effects.
- “4. You can’t depend on warning labels.”
True, but since dietary supplements are inherently benign with a margin of safety a mile wide, there is virtually nothing to warn consumers about. To be conservative, many products carry cautions relating to consumption by children and pregnant/breastfeeding women, but this is more to protect companies from actions stemming from gross misuse.
- “5. None are proven to cure major diseases.” [Subterfuge.]
The same can be said for prescription drugs. And even if they did, supplement manufacturers would not be allowed to tell consumers about it. Regardless, supplements are complements to the diet not substitutes for healthy food and physical activity.
- “6. Buy with caution from botanicas.”
I would venture to say that apart from cities bordering Mexico, over 99.999% of herbal products are sold through mainstream channels of trade. We could also say “don’t buy prescription pain killers” on the black market or from peddlers in back alleys, but some level of common sense usually prevails.
- “7. Heart and cancer protection: not proven.” [Deception.]
The American Heart Association recommends a diet rich in marine-based omega-3s, and the U.S. government has approved health claims for vitamin D and calcium supplementation. In 2005, Harvard researchers estimated that low intake of omega-3s in the U.S. diet accounted for 72,000 to 96,000 deaths from cardiovascular disease. There have been numerous animal studies showing direct cancer prevention with omega-3s and epidemiological studies associating high levels of dietary omega-3s with reduced rates of cancer.
- “8. Choking.” [Exaggeration again.]
Now Consumer Reports is really reaching. Anybody who tries to dry-swallow any pill can experience a gag reflex, which is not a problem unique to any one class of products.
“9. Some natural products are anything but.” [GMOs Are Unnatural Indeed.]
Most dietary ingredients are analogues of natural extracts; technologists are not standing around with wooden mallets, mortars and pestles. There are only one or two cases where a true synthetic is not as efficacious as a natural source nutrient, and that is with vitamin E.
“10. You may not need supplements at all.” [But probably need some.]
But we need drugs? For decades the USDA has shown that most of us do not get anywhere near a basic level of vitamins and minerals from the standard American diet, so it would be a rare person indeed who would not stand to benefit from a multivitamin/multimineral supplement at the very least.
- Although Consumers Union has a long, and illustrious, track record in advocating for consumers, Consumer Reports appears to have a bug in its bonnet regarding dietary supplements, either that or single-copy newsstand sales soar when “supplements are bad” stories are run.
- This is unfortunate, since scare-mongering re safe, well-regulated and effective dietary supplements will, at best, only serve to unfairly cause consumers to wrongly distrust a beneficial class of products and, at worst, drive even more Americans away from responsible self-care into the welcoming arms of drug-happy conventional medicine.
- That’s not what I call consumer advocacy.

Luck... Hamilton's National Bank was a Private Bank.

10States...
Section. 2.
The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;--to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;--to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;--to Controversies to which the United States hall be a Party;--

So when a State, group of States, or individuals file suit against the United States... SCOTUS has judicial power. They arbitrate.
The People are the final check because the SCOTUS doesn't play a part in amending the Constitution.

And Jefferson wasn't actually a 'delegated powers' type of guy - Louisiana Purchase, wars without congressional declaration, etc.
Which is why strict constructionist is considered Madisonian.

And 'tariffs'/etc have been covered under Article One Section 10... restrictions on the States. So this could have been done without ever delegating authority over interstate commerce to the Congress. As I explained the Founders didn't have as clear a definition of what was written as everyone wishes to project.

According to my lecture, Jefferson always worried about having done something unconstitutional when he authorized the purchase of New Orleans (French officials offered all of the Louisiana Purchase to his agents, one of whom was James Monroe, who had to decide on their own without being able to contact Jefferson whether to accept the larger and more expensive offer). Also, Madison was in favor of that purchase. All of the early presidents violated restrictions on presidential power to some extent, that doesn't invalidate the principle of having limited powers which they espoused.

Jefferson's "wars" involved limited action against the Barbary pirates, as I recall. He also was, at the same time, actively trying to AVOID war with Britain over their impressment of US men into the British navy, which eventually led to the War of 1812 under Madison. Thinking it would help, he called for and signed an embargo against Britain which really only hurt Americans, especially those in the Northeast (incidentally some people in the New England states were talking about secession about this time).

You're right that there was a lot of disagreement about various passages of the constitution. Not sure that means you're right about what it meant for Congress to have the authority to regulate interstate commerce. However, the people of the various ratifying conventions clearly understood they were delegating powers to a federal government, over various aspects of state laws. They were delegating the state's authority to do something to the federal government, they were not creating new government powers to regulate individuals that the states did not already do, in agreeing to the constitution.

Jefferson did not fully follow his principles as president, but very few presidents have. After the civil war, the Liberty Classroom professors can really only identify 3 presidents who didn't abuse their power, or did it very little: Grover Cleveland in 1885-89, 1893-97; and Warren G Harding and Calvin Coolidge in the 1920's.

I will grant that lawsuits AGAINST the federal government fall under Supreme Court review, according the passage you cited, but most SC cases are appeals of cases challenging state laws and do not meet this definition. It was also the Marshall court that assumed the right to overturn state supreme court laws, many of the founders intended this to be a completely separate court system, though the lack of organizational detail in Article 3 left much to be desired. As I see it, this is one of the great faults of the constitution, that the writers spent so much time outlining the powers and restrictions of Congress while saying very little about the executive and judiciary branches.

Madison had a habit of 'supporting' things that he also declared to be unconstitutional.
For instance; he supported the use of federal revenues to build infrastructure, but felt an amendment to the Constitution would be required for such.

Its clear that the person(s) entering that empowerment to the Congress, were not simply looking to do what Section 10 would do to limit regulations and tariffs. Though those ratifying the Constitution may have never envisioned that usage.

I never envisioned the ability to tax as a means to constitutionality of the PPAHCA, well, not until B.D. (at least I think it was B.D.) laid it out for me.

You mean challenging a State law by a citizen of that State, that does not involve the US Constitution, federal law, or treaties?

   Don,t mean to change subject but this is under health dept. Has anyone here used or checked out Collodial Silver? Its distilled silver charged water that kills foreign virus and bacteria, all virus and bad bacteria including many diseases,  not all. If you can,t get some medication in a need, just drink some silver water. Great for sick animals, I give it to my chickens all the time. Also Great Body detoxers are Activated Charcoal, and Bentonite Clay. Everyone should have these on hand.

Colloidal Silver
* I think Dr. Mercola has said that colloidal silver is good. But isn't it expensive?
* MMS is good for a lot of infections. It cured my tooth infections and removed a growth on my gum.
* Bitter melon is good for external infections, swelling, rash, sores, bites, stings etc, apparently. I've been using it on a rash. A friend gave me some seeds to grow next spring. She mixes the melon with alcohol to make a tincture, or mixes it with vaseline to make a salve. She gave me some of her salve.

February 13, 2013 - Issue 2370
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2013/02/13.aspx
Publication Bias—the Hidden Systematic Flaw in Medicine that Can Threaten Your Life
    Publication bias—the practice of selectively publishing trial results that serve an agenda—represents a systematic flaw of the scientific basis of medicine
    Bias includes publishing positive results but not the negative ones, not publishing retractions of fraudulent studies, and funding bias
    Half of all clinical trials ever completed on the medical treatments currently in use have never been published in the medical literature. Trials with positive results for the test treatment are about twice as likely to be published, and this applies to both academic research and industry studies
    In 2010, researchers identified all the published trials for five major classes of drugs, and then measured two key features: Were they positive, and were they funded by industry? Out of a total of 500 trials, 85 percent of the industry-funded studies were positive, compared to 50 percent of the government-funded trials, and that 50% probably stems from bias too
    Published studies are used by doctors and health agencies as the basis for making recommendations and writing prescriptions. When they’re given a radically skewed picture of the facts, they cannot make sound recommendations, and patients die

Aborted Fetus Cells Insanely Used in Food Industry
    The biotech company Senomyx creates novel flavor enhancing compounds for the processed food industry in order to make foods and beverages that taste good while reducing sugar and salt content. Customers include Pepsi Co., Ajinomoto Co. (the maker of aspartame and meat glue), Nestlé and others
    The genetically engineered flavor enhancers work by triggering taste receptors on your tongue, effectively tricking your taste buds into sensing sweetness, saltiness, or “coolness”
    Senomyx has created a taste testing system that uses human kidney cells originating from an electively aborted human fetus
    These fetal kidney cells (HEK293) have been cloned for decades, as they offer a reliable way to produce new proteins using genetic engineering. Senomyx has engineered HEK293 cells to function like human taste receptor cells
    These flavor enhancers are not listed on food labels, falling instead under the generic category of artificial and/or natural flavors

It’s Time to Change American Disease-Management into a Health-Fostering System
    The US does not have a health care system; we have a disease-management system that is dependent on expensive drugs and invasive surgeries. It’s a system rooted in an ideal of maximized profits, opposed to helping people maintain or regain their health
    The US spends more on health care than the next 10 biggest spenders combined: Japan, Germany, France, China, the U.K., Italy, Canada, Brazil, Spain and Australia, yet the US ranks last in health and mortality analysis of 17 developed nations
    Integrative medicine (IM) is a better alternative to the current system, as it offers a combination of conventional medical therapies and complementary or alternative therapies "for which there is some high-quality scientific evidence of safety and effectiveness"
    The Affordable Health Care Act is likely to make matters far worse rather than better, as the Act does not include any strategies to prevent illness. Nor does it contain any measures to rein in or reduce out-of-control health care costs related to overcharges. Instead it expands an already flawed model of “care” that has been and continues to be one of the leading causes of both death and bankruptcy in the US

Whole Foods Vows to Label GMOs by 2018
    Whole Foods has announced it will make labeling of genetically engineered (GE) ingredients mandatory in its American and Canadian stores by 2018. Many expect other retailers to follow suit
    About 20 major food companies, including Wal-Mart, recently gathered for a meeting in Washington to discuss potential lobbying for a national GMO labeling program
    The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) recently announced the creation of a new nationwide campaign called the Organic Retail and Consumer Alliance (ORCA). The mission of the new alliance includes exposing and eliminating the misleading practice of “natural” labeling and marketing
    Organic food and products, by law and by third-party certification, are produced without the use of synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers, animal drugs, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), irradiation, nanoparticles, or sewage sludge, whereas so-called “natural” products are completely unregulated
    A critical assessment of the consequences of commercial cultivation of GE plants in the US for 20 years advises the EU to NOT follow the path of the US, as it has had profound negative impacts on farmers, seed markets, and consumers. Among the eight final recommendations, the report concludes that “There must be no large-scale, commercial cultivation of GE herbicide-tolerant or insecticide-producing crops,” and that all potential situations must be retrievable

Are Nightmare Bacteria Coming to a Hospital Near You?
    Nightmare bacteria called CRE are nearly impossible to kill because they are resistant to virtually every antibiotic in existence; CRE bacteria are on the rise in medical facilities across America, now detected in hospitals in 42 states
    The most common form of CRE is a superbug form of Klebsiella, normally a harmless bacteria found in your intestinal tract; children, elderly, sick and immunocompromised individuals have the highest risk of infection; if it makes it into blood your odds of surviving an infection are a dismal 50 percent
    Not only is Klebsiella resistant to nearly all antibiotic drugs, but it can transfer its antibiotic resistance gene to other bacteria, which is why experts are so concerned
    Today’s alarming rates of antibiotic-resistant “super germs” result from overuse of antibiotics in both medicine and agriculture; you can reduce your risk by avoiding antibiotic drugs [and hospitals] and avoiding consumption of meat and poultry products from concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs)
    Suggestions are given for optimizing your immune system, decreasing your risk of exposure to dangerous pathogens, and being proactive about your medical care

The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food
    Poor will power is NOT necessarily what drives you to overeat on junk food. An in-depth investigation into the processed-food industry reveals there’s a conscious effort on behalf of food manufacturers to get you hooked on foods that are convenient and inexpensive to make [but expensive to buy]
    Sugar, salt and fat are the top three substances making processed foods so addictive. Sugar alone has been shown to be more addictive than cocaine, and food manufacturers use sophisticated taste science to determine the “bliss point” that makes you crave more
    Recent research confirms that processed meat consumption [not organic consumption] is strongly associated with premature death. According to the researchers, reducing daily processed meat consumption to less than 20 grams a day could reduce mortality rates across Europe by three percent annually
    According to a new report from the American Diabetes Association, an estimated 22.3 million people were living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes in 2012, up from 17.5 million in 2007
    To protect your health, I advise spending at least 90 percent of your food budget on whole foods

Documentary: "Trashed"
    Trashed, a 20-minute documentary, takes viewers on “an existential road trip through the quixotic American waste stream” to give you an idea of what our throwaway society is truly costing the planet
    The average American throws away 4.5 pounds of garbage every day; this amounted to about 250 million tons of trash in the United States in 2010 alone
    Plastic waste accumulates in landfills for hundreds of years or ends up in our oceans, where it forms enormous swirling “garbage patches” or breaks down into microparticles consumed by marine life
    You can do your part to reduce your plastic consumption and generation of waste to help protect the planet for future generations

Shocking Report Identifies Massive Seafood Fraud Across the US
    According to the nonprofit ocean protection group Oceana, over half of fish labeled "tuna" in the US is not actually tuna. A shocking 84 percent of “white tuna” sold in sushi venues was actually escolar, a fish associated with acute and serious digestive effects if you eat just a couple of ounces
    One-third of all fish samples tested across the US were found to be mislabeled; substituted for cheaper, less desirable and/or more readily available fish varieties
    87 percent of fish sold as snapper was actually some other type of fish
    Grouper, halibut, and red snapper were sometimes substituted with king mackerel and tile fish, two types of fish the FDA advises pregnant women and other sensitive groups to avoid due to high mercury content
    As seafood fraud and widespread contamination grows, along with mounting evidence of the critical importance of omega-3 fats found in fish, finding and using a viable alternative becomes an increasingly pressing issue
    My favorite animal-based omega-3 source is krill oil, which also provides other important immune boosting benefits courtesy of the astaxanthin it contains. Recent research shows fish oil may help protect against skin cancer, and astaxanthin alone is already known to act as an “internal sunscreen”

Hospitals Won’t Tell You, But Transparency Can Revolutionize Healthcare
    One in four patients in a hospital is harmed in some way from a medical mistake
    An estimated 30 percent of all medical procedures, tests and medications may be unnecessary – at a cost of at least $750 billion a year
    For the past two years, the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation, one of the largest physician organizations in the US, has released reports on the most overused tests and treatments that provide limited or no benefit to the patient, or worse, causes more harm than good. The list currently includes a total of 135 different tests, procedures and treatments [like Mammograms]
    Once you’re hospitalized, you’re immediately at risk for medical errors, so one of the best safeguards is to have someone there with you. This is particularly important for pediatric patients, and the elderly. Helpful tips and questions to ask to help prevent avoidable medical errors are discussed. [Better yet, avoid hospitals except for serious emergencies]

Hepatitis B Infection Despite Vaccination
    To avoid the hepatitis B vaccine for your baby at birth, you can amend the "consent for medical treatment" forms you sign upon entering the hospital before giving birth by writing on the form that you do not give consent for your baby's hepatitis B vaccination but, unfortunately, that is no guarantee that your baby will not be vaccinated in the newborn nursery without your knowledge or consent. [It's better to have your baby at home.]
    By the age of 15, about 15 percent of teens who received the full series of hepatitis B shots as infants tested positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), which is an early indicator of infection or a sign that the person is a chronic carrier of the virus
    Hepatitis B is a primarily blood-transmitted adult disease associated with risky lifestyle choices such as unprotected sex with multiple partners and intravenous drug use involving sharing needles—it is NOT primarily a "children's disease" or one that is a common threat to newborn babies
    At least 60 brain and immune system disorders or adverse effects are associated with hepatitis B vaccination

Dr. Wakefield Film on MMR Vaccine Caused Diseases
    “Hear the Silence” first aired on British television in 2003, then disappeared for nearly a decade before recently resurfacing on YouTube.
    It tells the story of British gastroenterologist Dr. Andrew Wakefield, whose 1998 research published in The Lancet suggested there may be a link between the MMR vaccine, chronic bowel disease and autism.
    Other studies have also suggested a link between the presence of the MMR vaccine strain of measles in the digestive tract, chronic bowel inflammation and symptoms of regressive autism.

Zithromax and Januvia Meds Shown to Be Killing Patients
    The US FDA is investigating a potential link between a commonly used class of diabetes drugs known as DPP-4 inhibitors and pre-cancerous changes to the pancreas. Additionally, previous studies have also indicated a connection of thyroid, colon, skin and prostate cancer
    FDA is adding a new heart-risk warning to the label of Zithromax (Z-Pak), a commonly used antibiotic used to treat bronchitis, pneumonia and other serious infections that can trigger lethal heart arrhythmias
    Research found that Zithromax greatly increases your chances of dying from a cardiovascular event. Those who already have heart problems are at even greater risk of dying from the drug, which parallels Vioxx that had killed 60,000 people by the time it was removed from the market in 2004
    All antibiotics, and especially the more potent ones like the Z-Pak, decimate your gut flora, which in turn leaves you with a sorely weakened immune system. If you must use an antibiotic, make sure to reseed your gut with probiotics, either from fermented foods or a high-quality probiotic supplement

Today’s Smorgasbord of Ag Chemicals Poses Special Risks to Children’s Health

    According to critics, the new edition of the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) diagnostic "bible" – the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM) -- will label healthy people with a mental condition and make them prime candidates for unnecessary prescriptions of mind-altering antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs
    Virtually none of the mental disorders described in the DSM can be objectively measured by empirical tests; instead, they're completely subjective
    By turning normal emotions and difficult life circumstances into “illnesses” the DSM-5 has resulted in the rampant over-medicalization and over-diagnosis of mental illnesses within the psychiatric profession [but huge profits for them and the drug makers]

    The conversion of large amounts of fertile land to desert has long been thought to be caused by livestock, such as sheep and cattle overgrazing and giving off methane. This has now been shown to be incorrect, as removing animals to protect land speeds up desertification
    Rising population, land turning into desert at a steady clip, and climate change, converge to create a “perfect storm” that threatens life on earth. According to an African ecologist, dramatically increasing the number of grazing livestock is the only thing that can reverse both desertification and climate change
    Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs), play a key role in this impending disaster, as large-scale factory farms also directly contribute to environmental pollution
    According to estimates, grazing large herds of livestock on half of the world’s barren or semi-barren grasslands could take enough carbon from the atmosphere to bring us back to preindustrial levels [But CO2 is NOT a problem. As John Stossel's guest mentioned lately on tv, more CO2 and warming have increased plant life over much of the Earth.]
    A holistic management and planned grazing system has already been implemented in select areas on five continents, with dramatically positive results
