I've been hanging around with the Boston Skeptics, and we would like to have a speaker from Monsanto come and speak to the group. We have a chance to direct the content a bit.
I know skeptics aren't unified on the GMO issue. But I appreciate that most of them are at least open to hearing the data from the other side of their concerns.
So here's my request for your questions: if you could hear from Monsanto, what would you like to have them address?
Alternatively, what myths do you think they need to tackle the most? What data might help you in discussions around the 'tubz on topics you face out there?
For example, I'm going to ask about:
1. Biodiversity. It seems to me that people think there is just 1 kind of corn out there. How many varieties of corn are available to farmers? What differs among them?
2. The technology agreement: can you clarify if farmers are bound to your company and your chemistry in perpetuity?
That sort of thing, really specific about Monsanto's science and business.

Thanks for any guidance. I do not have any affiliation with Monsanto or Big Ag in any way, if that matters.
