    Sounds like a controversial section thread idea.

    Sorry Otus we will have to agree to disagree. GMO's are killing our honey bee's AND corn is now labeled a bio toxin.

    There's actually no evidence that bees are dying because of GMOs. The blame is placed upon neonictinoids, a class of insecticide. It's coated on ALL crops, not just GMO crop. Honeybees are also a domesticated insect with a numerous and worldwide distribution - they are fine. It is bumblebees and many species of nesting solitary bee you should be worrying about.

    Furthermore, don't eat corn. Even without Monsanto getting their disgusting grubby genocidal capitalist fingers all over it, corn is disgustingly bad for your health and I do not understand the American obsession with it.

    AltPunisher so what you are saying is that the glyposate (main ingredient in Round UP) that is in Round UP ready GMO seeds have nothing to do with killing bees. How about the fact The World Health Organization has finally said glyphosate is a cancer causing agent. I know my mother (92) didn't eat GMO's when she was growing up. You will never convince me GMO's are safe.

    Glyphosate does kill bees. If Monsanto's making it, it's killing something - usually people, and not accidentally. GMO PLANTS, such as golden rice and innate potatoes (which reduces cancer risk from potatoes), which I thought you were attacking, are safe, not herbicides or plants with in-grown herbicides. I despise those and am not defending them, and I don't think Otus was either.

    My loathing for Monsanto cannot be understated.
    But still, GMOs are safe.

    I said "evidence for how MOST GMOS are completely safe" I will agree that Roundup is quite sketchy, but what I was talking about was what Alt was talking about, GOLDEN RICE, and the idea of engineering much needed nutrition into certain foods, and defenses against disease and herbicides.

    "in the last 20 years, GMOs have reduced pesticide applications by 8%, increased crop yields by 22%,"

    i think humans are the bane of this beautiful planet you humans call earth. all it is is destruction--Plutocracy is the most evil form of Government, for it is cold and uncaring. It is blind, and above all dispassionate about anything less than profit, for it is their God. All Plutocracies must burn for there to be change.

    Do you not realize how much attention everyone has given to this? Europe is beginning to ban sales of gas cars, how could we not be on the trail of fixing the earth?

    There is no fixing Earth. We are doing far too little, far too late, and do not have the technology to combat climate change. If we started doing everything we possibly can RIGHT NOW, we'd stop it at 1.5c. At the current rate, it is 2c. Even that is catastrophic. And within the next decade, that will be exacerbated by the extra water heating everything else.

    I truly believe that the direction we should be heading in is widespread nationalisation of many industries, throwing everything we can at renewable alternatives, and more than I can get across in this. Fundamentally changing the way the global economy works, pretty much. Yet the world moves in the opposite direction when we need it the most.

    Only way for humans to live at this rate is to leave the planet.

    In short, I'm pretty sure all we can do is slow it down, suffer from the effects for all of our lives, and our children (myself, an 18 year old, included - that is how bad this is) will hopefully be the ones to reverse it. If not, the human race and most other species face extinction.
