    Some Green’s won’t be happy until humanity goes the way of self-imposed extinction thereby confirming their Malthusian alarmist sentiment. Such a positive and helpful bunch they are /s.

    AGW redux. Somebody should explain to these idiots that we all started out a single cell organisms, and there’s no living thing on the planet that isn’t genetically modified. BTW, I hope that none of them use sugar, most of which is produced from GM beets, eat tomatoes or strawberries, etc.

      Their attitude, as manifest in so many of their public policies, is what you get with a scientifically illiterate population. We’re no better, plus we’re starting to imitate their defensive crouch in all the same policies.

    If the French want to ban GMO crops, that’s fine. They can eat more expensive products and feel morally superior about it. No big deal. The real issue, however, is the EuroGreens campaigning against GMO crops is places like South Asia and Africa and convincing hungry people that they can eat smugness.

    If you want to be a ludite, that’s one thing. You Luddism causing people to go hungry is quite another.

      Funny thing is, the European Greens opposed to GMO in 3rd world countries never get charged with racism. Very strange.
