GMOs are probably harmless, but I don't want them anyway. Why not?
1. Because I live in France. We have enough food production to meet our needs and export plenty. If I lived in a country unable to feed itself I'd have a different opinion on the matter I'm sure.
2. The real solution to sustainable world-wide food production is not to give Monsanto complete control but rather to place the control into the hands of small producers everywhere. They each need to find something that works for them. I don't trust miracle cures.
3. All Monsanto has to do to convince people (like all of us on this forum) is introduce doubt. They have all the cash in the world to confuse the issue. Like many things in high-tech there are probably only a few PhDs in the world able to truly grasp the nitty gritty of their well protected patents. So, I don't think they should be trusted.
1. This attitude completely rejects the value in advancing technology to produce more efficient, environmentally friendly and sustainable methods. It is ridiculous to adopt a stagnated industry system and expect it to be 'better' than one that is continually developing and adapting.
2. GE crops are not a miracle - they are science and have limited targeted improvements that need to be appropriately managed (like any other new variety). You seem to have a belief that Monsanto has some sort of noose on what farmers do; if so, you have fallen for green-washing propaganda. Also, what has Monsanto got to do with the safety of GE food which is being discussed here? You're also suggesting that small communal farms are more efficient than larger farms, this is almost certainly not true in most cases.
3. Now you're moving into the conspiracy zone. I've explained to you before how their patents work, it is not conspiratorial and you choose to ignore this.
