‘A catastrophe’: Greenpeace blocks planting of ‘lifesaving’ golden rice

Scientists have warned that a court decision to block the growing of the genetically modified (GM) crop golden rice in the Philippines could have catastrophic consequences. Tens of thousands of children could die in the wake of the ruling, they argue.

The Philippines had become the first country – in 2021 – to approve the commercial cultivation of golden rice, which was developed to combat vitamin-A deficiency, a major cause of disability and death among children in many parts of the world.

Patrick Moore who was cofounder of Greenpeace left the organization because he felt they've become too radical.

Could people just try not to make things worse while they try to make them better?

It's just another "benefit" of tribalism.  It poisons everything it touches.

Rightly or wrongly, Greenpeace have been labeled extremist: Groups including Greenpeace and Peta listed alongside neo-Nazis on counter-terror police documents | Daily Mail Online

It has been claimed they have roots in the 1930s Nazi movements about blood and soil.

 

PETA is a violent terrorist organization.

For Christsakes, they were holding bomb building classes.
