From the article:

You’re a farmer. Season after season, you watch your fields being taken over by Monsanto superweeds, which are resistant to the herbicide Roundup.
What are you going to do? You’re locked in. You’re buying your GMO seeds from Monsanto, and the food crops that grow from those seeds are supposed to be resistant to Monsanto’s Roundup, so that’s what you spray on your crops.
But the weeds aren’t resistant. They spread and they grow taller. They’re taking over.
So you, along with many, many other US farmers, go to a strategy called “burndown,” which is just as bad as it sounds. You use something a lot stronger than Roundup to kill those weeds: Paraquat, for example, which has been banned in 32 countries.
You drench your fields with it in the fall. You kill anything growing. And you drench the fields again in the spring, before you plant. Then, just as you’re going to plant, you hit the fields a third time with the poison.
This is in addition to all the sprayings with Roundup, which is toxic, too.
Then you harvest the crops and you sell them. And consumers eat the food along with all the poison.

Monsanto...aren't those blankety blanks tied in with the codex alimentarius?

Yep......they are certainly putting themselves in a position to control many of the crops grown. A case just started last week to check the legality of their patent rights. One to keep an eye on methinks!

I agree with the quote at the start of the article: ' For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increases knowledge increases sorrow'.

Life is all too much ............................................. and not enough.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

People like Monsanto had there heads chopped off during the French revolution. It would be an appropriate punishment for this scumbag. Publicly of course to deter any future ****s that want to mess with mother nature at the expense of there neighbor.

Monsanto is a cancer on this earth. The widespread corruption means no one is going to do anything about it.

What science are you suggesting. The science of how you can make a plant immune to roundup so you can spray it indiscriminately ?

Because farmers don't spray chemicals all over their crops anyway to protect them from insects, diseases and animals currently. Because engineering plants to produce high yields in small crop areas is a bad thing?

That's the science I want if you idiots want to keep yourselves in biofuels without bulldozing the whole of the Amazon to make way for cropland. Oh, and BTW, mankind has been tinkering with the genetic makeup of plants for centuries. It's how we've ended up with 200 different kinds of potato.

Derp. And they did it the natural way. Not by altering the genetics and then pushing it on a public untested followed by lawsuits against farmers that got a stiff wind oneday and got there crops crosspollinated by this garbage. Talk about having to bulldoze out your land.

Never mind well just dump the whole lot on NZ and call it good. You can have Monsanto. Because we dont want him in America dont let that stop you from takling his garbage. But TBH we have plenty of farmland and have nothing to do with the Rainforests of Brazil. So might want start topic on that. This ones about Monsanto's lawsuit currently in the USA court system.

I think the answer is gonig to end up being "Hard Work" rather then chemicals. If more farms were small farms, we could still get the same amount of food generated, but there would be a lot more human effort involved and therefore hopefully Quality.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

You have no clue what you are talking about do you....  Monsanto you know the name in the title of the thread look it up. They are the scum of the earth and yes blow them off the face of the planet. Ok drama but really they suck and will kill your children.

And I assume you do? Read my post again. I didn't say Monsanto weren't the scum of the Earth. But genetic engineering of plants and crops is the future, unless of course you want to starve to death because blights, diseases and insects have destroyed all the year's crops.

Derp.

This is probably the most intelligent thing you have said. Summing up your entire post history in one word. How apt.

Still genetic engineering. They could achieve the same results by decades of selective breeding as they could altering the genetic makeup in a laboratory.

Why not? If it repels rich Chinese businessmen, I'm sure you'd find a willing audience here.
