I've confronted the issue of GMO's before. Among people I admire GMO's have become anathema. The problem though is that we will need to be able feed eight billion people by the 50's. Activists were warning of mass starvation back in the 1960's, but it didn't happen, and it didn't happen because of the Green Revolution. Well, our backs may be against the wall again sometime soon, and we'll need another revolution. And as I describe here, the anti-GMO activists may be seriously preventing this revolution from happening. It is on this issue I diverge from my political friends severely.
