She seemed to be mainly focused on genetically altering crops. Something I don't think we need to do, or should do.
It's a certainty that those genes will spread into the environment. It's also a certainty that we don't know what the consequences would be, or it appears at this point, will be.
So, if there are alternatives, and there are, we should choose them. The problem? The alternatives aren't as profitable. Meaning, like so many times before, we're going to poop in our own nest again. And then the movers and shakers will make money off mitigating their own damage. It's a repeating cycle.
My interest in these organisms is about finding extraterrestrial life.
That, for several reasons, but also, partly thanks to the movers and shakers, we're gonna have to move soon.
