Is the point, then, that this is inevitable? It seems you are saying that this
will happen sooner or later -- a bit sooner is the GE crops are
widely-used -- a bit later if acreage is just sprayed with Bt or Roundup.
Does avoiding use of these biocides -- particularly the GE ones -- do
much more than buy us a little time? Time to do what? We will always
need tools to battle against the things that want to take our crops from us
and/or take the space that our crops occupy. The challenge is to look
into the crystal ball and see which will be benign (or least malignant).
I think most on the list will recognise this is a pretty big challenge.
