Dear friends: Here are the contents of an email which was sent to me. This concerns Obama's pick for Secretary of State but it also concerns much more. The bees are dying off in record numbers, particularly correlated to areas high in pesticide sprays. Here comes Obama's pick who loves to tout that stuff. Without our bees, nature's pollinators, basically it's either we hand-fertilize our crops (lotsa luck) or we starve.

Please spread word far and wide: Copy this message to email, send it around, post it to the web, contact Obama and your friendly newspaper editors! Please remind them (Obama and the editors) that organic food as an industry is booming and to choose a Secretary of State in favor of organic food would be profitable to the industries. Plus, it's not about what the politicians are about so much as what we the people are about: Please remind Obama and his secretary of agriculture! Thanks.

Tom Vilsack is being considered for the Secretary of Agriculture position in the Obama Administration. Vilsack is a notorious cheerleader for genetically engineered crops and chemical and energy-intensive industrial agriculture--certainly no friend of organic food and farming.

3) Sign the OCA's petition below to President-Elect Obama and urge him to appoint a Secretary of Agriculture that is supportive of organic food and farming.
