Please don't misquote me, I wrote this. What would you do with say 250,000 acres of land covered with a weed that is resistant to herbicides? Pull it out by hand? I don't think so. Not this. To assess the potential of herbicide-red with a weed that is resistant to herbicides? Pull it out by hand? I ...

Letter to a Christian Nation would maybe be a better choice than The God delusion, it's small (A5) it's short (90 pages) but hits the target and it will be less expensive than TGD, both to purchase and to mail.

bipedalhumanoid To assess the potential of herbicide-resistant weeds as a danger to crops, a French researcher placed a single triazine-resistant weed, known as fat hen, in maize fields where atrazine was being used to control weeds. After four years the plants had multiplied to an average of 103,00...

For those on this thread that think GM crops are a good idea. Modified genes from crops in a GM crop trial have transferred into local wild plants, creating a form of herbicide-resistant "superweed", the Guardian can reveal. Brian Johnson, an ecological geneticist and member of the government's spec...

If you alter the DNA of a sheep so that, say it grows six legs, making it more valuable to the farmer, that's Genetic Engineering. There you go turning GE into Frankenstein’s lab. I don’t think it’s good to propagate this kind of hysteria. How’s the farmer going to catch that sheep anyhow? GM his c...
