I would think that a forum still full of people pissed at monopolistic abuse in the computer industry would not be a place to get away with a more basically evil abuse of the biosphere and its food supply.
First, while genetically modifying things isn't inherently evil, it's tremendously risky to cross genes between kingdoms and phylums for the purpose of corporate profit.
Second, they're using a tactic we should recognize: "How is Europe going to be *competitive*?! How are you going to feed 7 billion people?" A good answer to those questions doesn't involve Monsanto's profit margins. There are plenty of good answers, and those who know the actual options can easily spot this sham for what it is.
Here's a good answer: for a ton of food production even in urban settings, there's aquaponics, something that gardeners and gadget geeks can both love. Come on, do you want to grow an adult human's entire vegetable produce requirement in 25 square feet? It's possible.
Having these close to the kitchen not only systemically eliminates the pesticides (the fish aren't down for that) and slashes overall water consumption, it also kills the built-in transportation costs. Also, if it's fresh and right there, you just pick it. No refrigeration necessary. You can do it for yourself in an apartment or on a large scale for the town.
Monsanto's GMOs are a stupid, wrong answer for everyone except Monsanto itself.
