Golden Rice, Green Idiocy

    N-fix, too. Ahh, technology.

    I think for profit corporations are one of humankind’s greatest inventions, but I want to see Monsanto defenestrated. I am absolutely delighted to see biotech done properly and its fruits made freely available to farmers- the rightful custodians of the genetic inheritance of our foodstuffs. The Greens? Pfui!

    The poor peasants don’t need golden rice. They need to eat more arugula and kobe beef.

    There’s one thing that animates the Greens. “Death to others in the human race”. That’s it. If Greens would kill themselves first, I’d actually believe that they believe what they say. But like Al Gore, who lives in a 10,000sq ft SEASIDE mansion, they don’t really believe what they say. They are watermelons…Green on the outside, Red on the inside.

    Greens have always been at heart a nihilistic cult that looks for ways to make humanity miserable. I would wager that if presented with a means to kill off 90% or more humanity in an environmentally sensitive manner, most of the hard core greenies would jump at it. As long as their complicity would be secret of course.

    • And as long as they or their friends weren’t one of the ‘90%’.

    • Read Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six … it is the very scenario you describe. Though the greens get theirs in the end, in a particularly appropriate way.

    Not content with the million dead from malaria every year because they banned DDT, the Greens want children to go blind as well.

    I wish that Greens would find a less destructive religion. Maybe they could worship Moloch or practice the Aztec religion and perform human sacrifice. They would probably have a lower body count.

      Go by Gosnell’s or any other “aborttoir” and see they’re way ahead of you.

    The Philippines have to import rice because of the regime of price controls and subsidies that result in artificial shortages that are the natural result of such policies. Apparently no one there has read the history of the Corn Laws in England.
