Isn't it interesting how biotech corporate promoters use such contradictory
arguments in their emotional frenzy to justify genetically engineered
crops. University of Guelph professor Gordon Surgeoner told a pro-biotech
gathering (Agcare) that soon "farmers will be able to contract to grow
plants that carry genes for medicines, industrial products and a variety of
products that will be welcomed by the consumer."
And that plants producing everything from fuel to drugs to industrial
products will offer farmers a chance to contract for five to eight million
acres of land. Hello, I thought we needed every acre planted in
genetically modified plants to feed the starving people of the world?
These corporate shills are intelligent, capable people. They know the only
interests of the corporate directors is control of the marketplace for
increased profit margins, they have no interest in starving people or they
would never have forced their Green Revolution on them in the first place.
They also have no interest in the natural environment that is the breath of
life in all its forms. And finally, they have no interest in the future of
farmers, nor of farming and rural living as a vital foundation of our
natural and well-fed on Vancouver Island, Canada
