In a fight, I am betting on Mother Nature.
And it will not end well.
This will be a short diary, with just the facts.
Two stories from Sunday that I have not seen diaried should be getting more attention than they are... I do hope everyone who reads this spreads it far and wide. This concerns the health of every Human (if not perhaps every living thing) on the face of the Earth.
The first story concerns Bt corn. Monsanto's Frankenfood has led to the adaptation of the rootworms their bioenginering was meant to stop. The rootworms have developed a resistance to Bt corn.
A so-called "Monsanto rider," quietly slipped into the multi-billion dollar FY 2013 Agricultural Appropriations bill, would require – not just allow, but require - the Secretary of Agriculture to grant a temporary permit for the planting or cultivation of a genetically engineered crop, even if a federal court has ordered the planting be halted until an Environmental Impact Statement is completed. All the farmer or the biotech producer has to do is ask, and the questionable crops could be released into the environment where they could potentially contaminate conventional or organic crops and, ultimately, the nation's food supply.So much for the rule of law. So much for consumer protection. So much for Humanity.
As I've said, this will not end well...Mother Nature ALWAYS wins in the end.
