GM is not evil.

/GM is not evil.

I admit that anti-GM hysteria is one of those things that irritates me a fair bit. It’s rare, after all, to find an issue that unities both the left and the right in opposition.

For what it’s worth, I’m perfectly happy to eat GM foods. I’m not perfectly happy about some of the business practices agribusiness companies employ in the space (“leasing” seeds and so on), but that’s not actually a problem with GM per se.

The food supply is fucked, and it’s especially fucked given the number of humans it needs to sustain. Right now, technology is pretty much the only thing standing between the population of Earth and mass starvation…
