I guess your view would differ if you worked in science or not.
I tend to be cynical in my views since science has been used for war and profit too much.
The pure learning and applications to make human life better seem to be happy coincidence rather than intentional effort.
That emergency is the 7+billion humans on earth and a need to feed them all. That is why gmo food was invented .
To feed hungry people for cheap.

The truth according to the mainstream media has been as absurd as the Conspiracy Theories that they routinely ridicule; and even if some of the most far-fetched Conspiracy Theories can't possibly be true and there haven't been aliens visiting the planet for thousands of years the most credible sources of news have been on alternative media outlet that get much less attention than the mainstream media. If there are no visiting aliens there is still credible evidence that Pharmaceutical companies and Monsanto are using the public for research on a massive scale and good researches like Harriet Washington, a Harvard Professor and Marcia Angell former editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine have done very good work on this subject.
However they don't explain many major unsolved mysteries like how massive megaliths were moved in ancient times, an enormous number of UFO sightings, mystics like Padre Pio, Edgar Cayce, Nikola Tesla and at least a dozen more.
Many of you are almost certainly familiar with Philip Corso's book "The Day After Roswell" Where he claims that he shared alien technology with multinational corporations including Dow Chemical and Monsanto. If this is partially true then this has to be huge and it almost certainly goes much farther than the amount of technology discussed in his book. This might means that research into medical advances disclosed by credible sources like Washington and Angell that don't discuss UFOs or other Conspiracy Theories they might consider "fringe" may be partially based on assistance from alien technology. If the aliens made a deal of some sort with the political establishment whether it is MJ-12 or some other organization with influence in multinational corporations and the most powerful government's in the world then it could explain why the government isn't responding to the will of the people and why they're not even trying to do a good job pretending to.
I'm trying to be a rational skeptic about this; however that doesn't mean, ignoring facts that I can't explain and the behavior of the government is increasingly absurd and in many cases it is obviously staged, like the irrational claims about Russia being the ones rigging the election. It is obvious that the consolidated corporate media has only been covering selective candidates for us to chose from and by simply refusing to cover candidates they don't approve of they can rule out grass roots candidates by preventing them from getting any name recognition.
If Russia had anything to do with rigging the election they couldn't do it without an enormous amount of help from the mainstream media that gave Trump obsessive coverage for decades and increased it during the campaign! at the same time they refused to cover rational candidates and many of the most important issues.
If this election was rigged, which it almost certainly was, it was rigged by the MSM the RNC and the DNC; Russia is being used as a scapegoat with little or no involvement. If they did participate it is only enough to take the blame.
I have done a series of articles on this theory which is more complex, or at least some of the details are including one about a Conspiracy Theory before the election or the Al Smith dinner that mentioned an "Apocalypse Hypothesis" which should be considered absurd; however it was first considered in 2008 by other people when Hillary Clinton didn't resemble "The Whore of Babylon" at all, in my opinion. By the time I wrote the article below she had many more characteristics of the "Whore of Babylon." I'm still trying to be a rational skeptic about this, but this is increasingly looking like an insane charade and it isn't the fear-mongering that most people might expect out of an end of the world "Apocalypse," Instead it looks like a bad joke where everyone is acting like clowns and enormous problems, fake and real, are treated like a joke.
After I wrote this article, Yes Virginia There Is A Trump And Clinton Conspiracy the Al Smith dinner made both Hillary and Trump look even more corrupt and rotten then when Trump won it resembled a claim in the Apocalypse where the "Beast" beats the "Whore of Babylon." This is followed up by a couple more recent articles about Big Pharma and Monsanto using us as research subjects. The first one is Deadly Monopolies and Medical Slavery? doesn't consider aliens sharing technology at all and just considers the greed motive presented by Washington and Angell. The second one, Deadly Monopolies With Alien Technology? follows up on this one considering the possibility that the technology developed might have some connection to technology gained from aliens as claimed by Corso and numerous other alleged whistle blowers. These also include additional links to other articles including some theorizing about why there are so many obvious blunders from both believers and skeptics in what I called a "Recruit a Group of Crackpots" Hypothesis in a previous ATS string. They're essentially leaking reliable information mixed with unreliable information so it doesn't seem credible.
This forum no longer seems to allow long excerpts or even medium sized excerpts, which might be just as well since these are relatively long articles and I wouldn't want to put to many there in the first place. It would be better to read the whole thing assuming you have time and take it seriously but I'll include a couple of the most important excepts in responses shortly after posting this string, for those who don't have time to read the whole thing.
The explanation provided by Washington and Angell would be a good fall back theory, far better than the traditional explanation by mainstream media but they're limited to their own field and don't explain many unsolved mysteries including the insane political activity that contributes to outrageous behavior by executives of Pharmaceutical companies.
Well you've certainly heard their sales pitch
Are GMOs Safe?
Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In fact, in more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs. In the U.S. and Canada, GMOs have been approved based on studies conducted by the same corporations that created them and profit from their sale. A growing body of evidence connects GMOs with health problems, environmental damage and violation of farmers’ and consumers’ rights.
At the Non-GMO Project we hear from people on a daily basis who are deeply concerned about the potential impacts of GMOs and are taking matters into their own hands by choosing to opt out of the GMO experiment.
often don't produce seeds that can be replanted. This is so that they can control an profit off it.
