I don\’t think this is true really:
Dr Julian Little, chairman of the Agricultural Biotechnology Council, pointed out that more than 300 million acres of GM crops are planted in the world every day.
300 million a day is 109,500,000,000 acres a year. There are 247 acres to a square kilometer. So we\’re saying that 443,000,000 square km are planted with GM crops each year.
Total land area of the Earth is 148,940,000 km2.
So, the statement as it stands is that we\’re cropping the entire land surface three times a year with GM crops.
No, I don\’t think so really, I just don\’t.
Not sure who we should call them out on, Louise Grey or Dr. Julian Little, but someone really should call the numeracy police.
