doesn't it scare you even a little that one company is gaining such a hold of the world food supply?
Not really. Contrary to what you seem to believe, Monsanto (like any producer) is subject to market pressures. From 2011:

Monsanto is trying to regain its momentum after a rocky year in which farmers balked at the price of its new premium corn seed, SmartStax, and prices for its glyphosate herbicide tumbled as it lost ground to generic competitors.

And you know they just bowed out of the EU market, right? There are plenty of others to take their place.

I'm an organic farmer, and it's definitely not more expensive because we're battling Monsanto or the epa or whoever, it's simply because we need the man power to get all the weeds out and to maintain a healthy garden without just spraying tons of pesticide and herbicide of all the plants. We try to cultivate healthy soil through crop rotation (which means we can't just monocrop our entire farm) so we need variety, and also just constant watch on our fields to keep everything healthy.

also: to everyone that doesnt seem to understand that Monsanto and all the GMO companies have an insane foothold in the US govt.
rense.com...
(im new here so i dont know how to do the link to external site thing)

And if the we need these GMOs in order to feed the world, why are there 10's of millions of children dying every day from starvation still..? Why have the starvation numbers not been shrinking? And why are so many disorders exploding across our populations?

In regards to the OP, I guess we're all bickering over whether GMOs are good or bad...so we cant yet use the quote about enough good people doing nothing and letting evil take over.

peace

Yep and with China putting it's full weight in to that market that 'share' is going to decrease.

www.reuters.com...


he State Council, China's cabinet, said in a statement that the world's largest grain producer aims to breed new seeds using China's own biotechnology and set up large seed-breeding bases by 2020.

One more thing-
As far as genetically modifying, theres a difference between keeping the plants that survive in the cold and keeping the most vigorous in whichever scenario you hope to promote (you keep the plants seeds that survive and ditch the ones that dont) and splicing genes from animal and plant species that could never possibly get into that plants gene pool except through crazy high tech science... thats the difference between breeding and gene modifying

Yup. Imagine trying to do that over millions of acres of organic corn.

Because the world's population continues to grow at a pace that exceeds the production of food? Because there are many places where agriculture is very poorly practiced. Because there are famines.

Quick question. Can anyone point out a website to me to where the gmo plants are being grown in the USA?

I am not a fan of monsanato some of there business practices I have heard about sound horrible although I do not know how true those claims are considering that they mostly come from the same sources that claim their crops are harmful to eat which no one has proven to me in these threads. I take it with a grain of salt.

Anyways it kinda sickens me to see so many cheering that a field was torched. There is no way that I can condone that sort of vandalism. Maybe it will come out that the farmer did it but I kind of doubt it. Politics plays a bigger role in the world being fed than the availability to feed them most people know that however the ability to do so may depend on those like monsanato in the near future. If it can be proven that gmo's are harmful then I will change my mind on this but no one has done this yet.

Yup, one big farm, one big bank, one big news outlet. Keep tightening that screw.

Small farms were so 19th century. Constitutional money, too. Hello to Progress and bye bye to the American Way.

You'd have been the life of the party at the Boston Tea Party. They probably would have kept the tea and thrown you overboard.

Good for them. If terrorism is what will get them to stop, then let it begin!

If I already stated that destruction is wrong and isn't the answer, why would I come burn down your garden?

Now answer me this, if you hate the food stamp program so much and you hate cronyism so much why are you advocating a company that lobbies for food stamps and is so involved in government that they literally have a revolving door with executives in office or appointments or former appointees or elected officials now executives in their company?

Sorry but your Ad-hom attacks are the same as the chemtrail crowds. Instead of showing why they are bad you attack the person who wants proof your position is correct.

Maybe you do believe in chemtrails as well.

BTW it's pretty sad you would try to liken Eco terrorists to the Boston tea party. The people who burned the field were at best cowards they are pretty much scum of the earth who should have doused themselves with gasoline and burned instead of setting fire to a farmers field.

My "attacks"? I wasn't even there. Besides it would only have been an attack if you can't swim.

Lets face it, nothing is bad, its all good, everyone loves us and we'll all live happily ever after. Sheesh.
