    I am against GMO!
    I think it should be banned!
    Itrust neither the politicians or the experts. Both are bought and sold commodities.
    I am fully aware of possible benefits as regards feeding the world, but the Corporations that control GMO are weasels. Monsanto, Union Carbide perhaps. It's like the Global Warming debate. There is really no debate, the consensus amont experts is that it is a real threat, yet the big carbon profiteers and polluters can buy experts to publish papers suggesting Global Warming is a fraud. The papers are frauds and the financiers and authors should both be arrested, except it's not illegal. Unethical, immoral, wrong, evil, etc., but not illegal.

    and not

    GMO - General Moly, Inc.

    and not

    GMO - GMO LLC


    Right?

    The issue is not global warming.The issue is man made global warming.Trying to lump in man made global warming fairy religion in with natural climate change suggest that you are trying to paint everyone who doesn't believe in man made global warming fairy tale like you do is a climate change denier.Funny how when a anti-man made global warming fairy tale study comes out its always, You man made climate change religious nuts claim they're funded by big oil. But somehow its perfectly acceptable if a pro-man made global warming fairy tale study is funded by people who believe in the man made global warming fairy tale religion. There is no consensus among all the scientists in whether or not man is the cause. If anyone should be arrested it should be all the people trying to push this man made global warming fairy tale on all of us and create laws that influence our pocket books. Trying to claim there is no debate is dishonest.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    If its genetically modified diseases it should be banned.Scientists should never be allowed to create a more dangerous strain of the bird flue and those that do create more dangerous strains of diseases should be thrown into prison for it and permanently banned from their field of study. The world doesn't need mad scientists. Scientists Make Killer Flu Virus Even Deadlier - Truthdig

    I am not sure I am comfortable with genetically modified food either.There could be unknown effects on people, as well as overtaking the natural wild life should the plants and animals get into the wild.Scientists are not the most ethical people on the planet who care if their discoveries have a negative impact and just like politicians are influenced by who ever is paying them.

    I am against it personally. That being said, I'm not sure it should be banned, because we have an increasing need for food supplies due to a growing consumption. Sometimes, pragmatism trumps ideology.

    You mean this year it's man-made global warming. Last year it was just "global warming is a ghost/specter/fairy tale". Yes, when their own experts publicly turned against them and said global warming was real they had no choice but to concede the point. Of course, it took a decade and who knows how many billions of dollars for us to get that far.

    And thank goodness there will never be a "consensus among all the scientists" about anything because on that day science becomes religious dogma and ceases to be science. A very small few will continue to question even the most obvious. Personally, I still think there is no gravity - the Earth sucks.

    There is such a thing as "public image"..
    Only the truth will do, NOT ADVERTISING !!!!
    But I am for GMO, at this point in time and I do trust my... our government, but they too must work on their public image..
    I tend to agree with the rest...the uneducated conservatives are a problem,IMO...

    Right?
    Having Googled....I was about to post the same thing.....
    Beginning of rant...

    Another problem in our society , the over use of acronyms and poor communications.
    English must be taught in our schools, this is not being done as well as it could be, IMO.
    In my opinion, it is disrespectful of other readers to use gibberish, acronyms, poor spelling, grammar, on and on..
    End of rant..

    And why do you think this is a "fairy-tale" ??
    I for one ,have more faith in the scientists than I do with right-wing politicians....and the Becks and Rushes of this nation...
