My guess is you have a problem with lesbians.

'What kind of sick and twisted toy factory is this?'
'We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, the best of us is washed away.'
"Better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool."
Allow? It should be encouraged.
I hate to break the news to you, but everybody dies eventually.
And that has literally nothing to do with the OP. So as punishment for your getting out of line, consider this my last response to you on either thread.
Just an fyi - the lesbian is also a lady so I find the distinction you have made to be more of an anti-gay statement than anything else. In fact, both are women so I find that the use of the word "lady" is signifying that she has more credibility as a woman than the "lesbian" has credibility.
As far as the topic at hand - GMO foods have been around for decades. The effects of GMO's do not show up overnight. I'm not keen on a company like Monsanto telling me that its GMO products are safe for me. Who pays into their research and who would benefit the most?
I do agree with you that we are all responsible one way or another for our fellow human (and animal) companions, but that does not mean that we sally forth with flags waving to promote GMO's and to negate other ways to provide fuel for the continuing growth in the world population.
I believe that the topics of food, energy, and other resources do not belong labeled as conservative vs. liberal. It doesn't matter what one believes; in the end these topics will end up (and are already) affecting everyone regardless of political slant.
People die because the world selectively determines who receives the best resources and who does not. All the GMO food in the world will not feed the starving peoples in third world countries; the issue is working around the world to provide the best leadership so that people of all walks of life can live sustainable lives.
I find it repulsive that any person would think that is it fine to let people die when not by their own choice (such as right to die supporters).

Eco-friendly vehicles making farms even greener - Environment - The Independent
Consumer interest growing in eco-friendly tractors and mowers - John Deere MachineFinderThe tractor can produce 106 hp/142 kW, and runs on hydrogen stored in tanks, which New Holland believes makes it ideal for farmers.
"Farmers are in a unique position to benefit from hydrogen technology," said a statement from the firm.
"Unlike many people, they have the space to install alternative electricity generation systems, such as solar, wind, biomass or waste, and then store that power as hydrogen."
With more stringent emissions standard on the way for heavy industrial vehicles in both Europe and North America, New Holland could be on to something, although it's not the only group to spot a gap in the market.
Tractors New Holland TD5 - Models, technical data and characteristicsBeing eco-friendly is only a positive if you have the right piece of equipment for your property, says one dealer in Virginia. If a small push mower or electric mower won't do the job for your property, some multi-purpose models are available that can be used in all seasons for pushing snow or pulling up stumps.
https://www.deere.ca/en_US/corporate.../products.pageTier 3 compliant TD5 engines not only allow overall better working performance, but also dramatically reduce your end-of-the-year fuel bill. For example, the new TD5.90 is 10% more fuel efficient than the current model at maximum torque. This means for a tractor used for 500 hours / year a saving of 1062 litres each year. Just multiply this figure by the cost of litre of diesel and you will be astonished by the amount of savings you can achieve.
Seems to me like strides are being made in an environmentally friendly direction... Do you believe that there is no alternative to fossil fuels? Do you believe the technology is moving too slowly? What's the exact point you're making here?Our 644K Hybrid Loader goes well beyond burning less fuel while reducing emissions. With its PowerTech™ 6.8-L IT4/Stage IIIB engine, hybrid-electric transmission, and brushless generator, the 644K boasts:
Fuel consumption reductions up to 25%
Operation at constant operator-selected speeds of 1200, 1500, or 1800 RPMs to reduce engine wear, noise levels, and fuel consumption
Quiet operation, with in-cab levels at 68 dBA because the engine does not need to rev up and down
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury." Attributed to Alexander Tytler
It is a false choice. Changing our energy use so suddenly that it would cause famine would be impossible, even if a policy decision was made to do so.
Don't forget that we currently accept many deaths and much illness from air pollution, exposure to toxics and other causes directly related to fossil fuel use and production.
I don't support letting people die, but we should encourage lower birth rates in general, and with the most urgency in places where the population exceeds the carrying capacity of the land.
