Monsanto has made sure they’ve covered all of their bases when it comes to controlling the population.
From propaganda and food supply to governments and skewing research in their favor, the company’s board of directors is a global who’s who that represents some of the most infamous corporations on earth.
The following is a list of the 13 members of Monsanto’s Board of Directors. Almost all raise more questions about the secretive corporation than they do answer any questions.
Gregory H. Boyce
Gregory H. Boyce is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Peabody Energy Corporation.
Peabody Energy Corporation is the largest private sector coal company in the world. They generate roughly 10% of all electricity generated in the United States.
In 2013 alone, Peabody spent $3,770,000 lobbying Washington to continue polluting not only the United States but the world. Since 2008, they have spent over $37 million dollars on lobbying politicians, not to mention another $690,000 that was donated to political campaigns from 2008 to 2012.
Peabody ranked 493rd out of 500 in Newsweek’s Green Rankings in 2012 and was also ranked the #1 worst company for the planet in 2009.
Polluting the world with coal must not be enough for Mr. Boyce. He has been serving on the board at Monsanto’s since April of 2013.
David L. Chicoine
David L. Chicoine, Ph.D. is president of South Dakota State University and professor of economics.
Dr. Chicoine has served on the Board of Directors of the John Warner Bank, the Carle Foundation Hospital, the Farm Foundation, the DuPage International Technology Park, the Illinois Technology Development Fund, and the Argonne National Laboratory. Along with currently sitting on the Board of Monsanto, he also sits on the board of First Bank & Trust.
Is it possible that the president of a University who has ties to research firms is involved with Monsanto to help ensure their research findings skew in the companies favor?
Janice L. Fields
Janice L. Fields is a former president of McDonald’s USA, LLC, a subsidiary of McDonald’s Corporation.
Yes, Mrs. Fields is the former president of THAT McDonald’s. The same restaurant who’s “food” is barely food. Nothing to see here though.
Hugh Grant is the chairman and chief executive officer of Monsanto Company.
Arthur H. Harper
Arthur H. Harper is managing partner of GenNx360 Capital Partners.
GenNx360 is a private equity firm who has strong ties to General Electric. According to GenNx360.com, several of the equity firm’s senior partners include:

Former SVP, President & CEO GE Equipment Services, a $7 billion business segment
Former VP and Corporate Officer; President & CEO GE Sensing
Laura K. Ipsen
Laura Ipsen is corporate vice president of Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector organization.
According to Microsoft via CRN.com:
As corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Worldwide Public Sector organization, Ipsen leads the company’s sales and marketing efforts to customers in government, public safety, national security, education and non private health care in more than 100 countries.
Mrs. Ispen’s position provides Monsanto with a direct connection to governments, along with their education and health care systems.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates has also said on record that vaccines will help reduce the world’s population. The Bill & Melinda Gates foundation dispense vaccines to people all around the world.
Gwendolyn S. King
Gwendolyn S. King is president of Podium Prose, a speakers bureau.
Podium Prose is nothing more than a glorified propaganda firm.

Marcos M. Lutz
Marcos M. Lutz is the Chief Executive Officer of Cosan S.A. Indústria e Comércio.
Cosan S.A. Indústria e Comércio is involved in the production and sale of sugar and ethanol worldwide. Additionally, they are engaged in the distribution of natural gas to approximately 180 municipalities in the territory of São Paulo, Brazil. According to Foreign Policy Magazine:
While sugar cane ethanol is certainly less ecologically destructive than some other bio fuels, the industry’s boosters have overlooked one key fact: You’ve got to plant sugar cane somewhere. One couldn’t pick a worse place to harvest cane than Brazil’s Atlantic rainforest. There, sugar cane crops have led to deforestation and, paradoxically, more carbon emissions.
So much for Monsanto’s dedication to sustainability.
C. Steven McMillan
C. Steven McMillan is a retired chairman of the board and CEO of Sara Lee Corporation.
Sara Lee is a globally popular food brand that produces meats, bakery goods, and beverages.
In 2012, the company contributed $343,600 to “The Coalition Against The Costly Food Labeling Proposition, sponsored by Farmers and Food Producers.” The groups sole purpose was to oppose Proposition 37, which demanded mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically modified ingredients.
Jon R. Moeller
Jon R. Moeller is chief financial officer of The Procter & Gamble Company.
Proctor & Gamble claims that nearly 5 billion of the 7 billion people on the planet use their products.
Greenpeace exposed widespread forest devastation by P&G earlier this year.
William U. Parfet
