Vandana Shiva came to the US in the early 1990s in the campaigns against the World Trade Organization and globalization. She was well known as protector of seeds and a brilliant critic of biotechnology. Her most recent 2019 book: Oneness VS. The 1%, culminates that work in an amazing indictment of a new world-wide power center reaching from Monsanto to Artificial intelligence. Vandana Shiva describes what she calls a poison cartel comprising of Bayer that just took over Monsanto, to Dow that has merged with Dupont; and Syngenta that has merged with ChemChina. What these corporations have in common is the control of our foods and the chemicals used on them. They are defining industrial agriculture and have enormous impacts on climate change.

On March 30, 2019, Vandana Shiva was the guest of Chris Hedges on his TV program ON CONTACT. What shocked and surprised even him was that this Poison Cartel has already entered strategic alliances with internet giants and promoters of artificial intelligence such as Bill Gates, Facebook, and Amazon.

Chris Hedges is a journalist, author, Presbyterian minister, and visiting Princeton University lecturer. His many books include War is a Force That Gives us Meaning and his most recent America: The Farewell Tour.

Vandana Shiva is an Indian physicist and social activist. The daughter of a forestry official and a farmer, she grew up near the foothills of the Himalayas. She earned her doctorate in Canada and returned to India to work with the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology (RFSTE)in Dehra Dun.

In 1991 Shiva launched Navdanya, meaning “Nine Seeds,” or “New Gift” in Hindi, to combat the growing tendency toward monoculture promoted by large corporations. Shiva argues that in a time of climate change, monocultures are dangerous.
Among her many books are Soil Not Oil, Staying Alive, Biopiracy: The Plunder of Nature & Knowledge, Monocultures of the Mind, and now: Oneness VS. The 1%.
