Re: 'Doomsday' Seed Bank to open in Norway.
Mitchel, you are misunderstanding me.
Cross-pollination from sterile crops does not occur, but I agree that cross-pollination from non-sterile GM plants is occurring and in some cases harmful.
I disagree that all seeds being modified were once heirloom seeds, certainly some of them were. Of the over 200 plants I am growing, about 1/2 are heirloom, the other 1/2 still on patents, 100% of them are hybrids, and 0% are GM. I do eat GM corn on a monthly basis though.
I agree that there are too many people on the planet. I don't think that implies anything one way or the other about GM.
I don't think there will be adequate safe-guards in place for GM until the unbridled fears have all but gone away and we can focus on specific, tangible problem areas.
