In The Comments

So, a decent and balanced piece on GM crops. No, really, it is. Containing this point:

The trouble is that GM crops represent everything that the environment movement has come to hate, though it was not the technology itself that originally made greenies froth at the mouth. It was its promotion and marketing by international conglomerates such as Monsanto a decade ago that raised the hackles. As a result, GM crops have become a lightning rod for protests about globalisation. \’GM technology permits companies to ensure that everything we eat is owned by them,\’ claimed campaigner George Monbiot.

First comment:

I might if GM crops were researched and distributed by not-for-profit agencies.

Sigh.

Third comment gets it:

Peculiar. Do you have the same attitude towards antibiotics, computers, toothpaste, pacemakers, ice-cream, cars, airplanes, toilet paper, books, films, music and just about everything else in your life and the world?

  1. “though it was not the technology itself that originally made greenies froth at the mouth”

    Bollocks. This is Moonbat rewriting history in true Stalinist style.

  2. Further down some enviro-socialist says “And we wonder why people will fly planes into buildings.”

    To which somebody has replied “Nobody is wondering. They fly planes into buildings because they’re mad.”
