Viewpoint: ‘Farming is always unnatural’ — German farmers on why the EU needs to stop romanticizing agriculture and start embracing ‘intensive’ farming – Genetic Literacy Project

We get too romantic about farming: “Nature is not gentle. Farming is always against nature. If you don’t do anything, almost only weeds grow in the field, pests eat up what little I can still harvest.”

The Séralini affair: How a discredited study set Kenya’s agricultural biotechnology revolution back a decade – Genetic Literacy Project

GMO crops aren’t new to Kenya; in 2012 we had GMO maize being imported into the country until the infamous Séralini study released in September of that year that showed a link between cancerous tumors developing on mice and glyphosate — the main active ingredient of Roundup herbicide.

Viewpoint: NY Times collaborates with Greenpeace in front page ‘hit piece’ targeting professor working to reduce the sustainability footprint of animal agriculture. Here’s his response – Genetic Literacy Project

There’s a shocking revelation out there, and I am at the heart of it. Are you prepared for this? Animal scientists work with animal agriculture. That’s it. That’s the exposé, the conspiracy that so many activists and journalists want to share with you.

Viewpoint: The world’s farmers are starting a ‘pro-GMO rebellion,’ challenging ‘dubious’ and ‘contradictory’ regulatory regime – Genetic Literacy Project

Farmers across the world are desperate to grow genetically modified crops (GM) in their fields. So much so that in some countries farmers have bypassed existing bans on these crops and even made harvests from them.

Viewpoint: Europe’s ‘Green’ activists wield McCarthy-era tactics by promoting ideology over science, undermining the push for sustainable food – Genetic Literacy Project

Calls for realistic and workable regulation of “new genomic techniques” (NGT or new breeding techniques, “NBT”) for plant breeding cannot be heard. Those who advocate for them are mouthpieces for “capitalist science” according to a Greens/EFA report from the European Parliament. Joseph McCarthy returns!
