What's scary is that agriculture is staring down an increasing population, global climate change, increasing energy costs, peak phosphorus, increasing pressure on fresh water resources, evolving pests and pathogens, desertification, deforestation, greater demand for animal protein, and agriculture has to take care l that without expanding the amount of land under the plow, and we've got people having not based in science blanket opposition to what will probably go down as the most significant breakthrough in plant improvement since unraveling Mendelian genetics. Now THAT is scary.
Sorry for my premature reply.
I agree with the above quote, right down to "the most significant breakthrough" -->
The topic requires a forum format, a good week to define the various strands of the arguments, a few extraordinarily objective moderators to shuffle the input into proper categories, and another month to agonise through al the permutations.

I've transformed plants before. I have no problem eating genetically engineered food. I do it all the time
Yes, well you remind me of those yerkoffs who used to drink DDT on TV. Yes, Im am that old.
It has been found that organisms vary considerably in the minimum viable population, and inherent genetic variability within that population, required for long term sustainability.
The original canary in the mineshaft, the african cheetah suffered from a low variability. Introducing new gametes solved that nicely.
Aplodontia rufa on the other hand seems to do very nicely with less than a loving spoonful.
When the word "Alarmist" appears 14 times in a short news article, there can't be many who don't realise they are reading propaganda rather than news.
Actually it was 15 times if we include the photo caption. My old english prof, Kasowitz, would freak.
Tip from your friendly neighbourhood biochemist - it's not just the cannabidiol, it's the ratio between tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol that counts.
More pertinant is the prevalence of, specificaly, the delta 9 radical of tetrahydrocannabinol.
