Tons of GMO corn are now being wiped out by pest insects that have adapted to GMO based methods.
But don’t worry, the biotech companies knew this would happen and are standing at the ready to introduce even more GMOs and toxic chemicals into the food supply. That’s right, we’ll fix the problem that was caused by using GMO’s and toxic chemicals excessively, through excessive use of GMOs and toxic chemicals. Sounds like a real winner.
From the Star Tribune:
What’s next, they say, is even worse. To combat the growing wave of resistant weeds and bugs, biotech companies like Monsanto and Dow Chemical Company are poised to launch a whole new arsenal of genetically modified seeds that will accelerate the chemical warfare. Some are designed for use with older, more toxic herbicides that scientists say pose an even greater risk to the environment and human health.
The biotech companies say they will educate farmers and extension agents on how to minimize the health and environmental risks, and that the multiple genetic weapons contained in the new seeds will make it impossible for pests to develop resistance.
I shudder to think what ‘education’ means to Monsanto.
After all, what could possibly go wrong? Oh wait, everything that already has.
