    How bad is Monsanto? Mother Earth News writer Barbara Pleasant answered that question in a “Happy Homesteader” post last year. “In 2006 the corporate giant bought Delta and Pineland, a leading producer of cotton seed, so that it now controls a huge share of the cotton seed market,” Pleasant reports. “Monsanto’s genes are in about 95 percent of commercial soybeans and 80 percent of commercial corn, and people like the attorney generals of Iowa and Texas are concerned that Monsanto’s business practices violate federal antitrust laws that protect free competition. When it comes to licensing agreements, Monsanto is reportedly a big time bully.”

    A lot of corporations are greedy (Goldman Sachs). Many are downright criminal (Big Pharma). But only a few corporations rise to the title of being considered truly and irreversibly evil. That’s where Monsanto apparently takes the top prize.

    Monsanto behaves like an evil corporation that pretends to be angelic. The Monsanto website is an orgy of touchy-feely corporate spin that tries to position the company as the savior of life on planet Earth.

    Writers were creating this cartoon in prose years before Monsanto became a reality. Will Monsanto engineer triffids?


    I wouldn’t put it past them.


    (Of course, Wyndham thought it would be Soviets from Lysenko’s group that would lead in bioengineering triffids, not Monsanto. But he was half right.)

    who cares? as long as Monsanto turns profits and makes billions for it’s one per centers, then it’s all worthwhile.

    Don’t like enhanced foods? Fine, don’t eat them. While you’re at it, quit trying to sneak into our country so you can eat the stuff on our dime, too!

    problem is that GMO corn pollinates regular corn, and has been doing so for years… so we don’t have the choice to NOT eat the stuff

    Monsanto contaminated all the corn in Mexico. Even their sequestered seed corn. Monsanto has no traction there Tea Bagger. You are just hallucinating. A common practice among Tea Baggers.

    That GMO corn isn’t safe and not all progress is good. And GMO corn to benefit Monsanto’s herbicides is down right suicidal.

    From a cost-benefit perspective, a major benefit of GMO crops is that they aren’t killed by broad-spectrum herbicides like Roundup. This allows farmers to hire fewer workers and spray more chemicals. And Monsanto makes money from both the seeds and herbicides. Of course, neither Monsanto nor the farmers accept any responsibility for these chemicals polluting our ground water and washing into our rivers.

    The overuse of herbicides has also created mutations of super weeds. And guess who will make a lot of money with a new herbicide for them?

    As another example, some of Monsanto’s GMO crops were bred to produce their own insecticides. But this upset the ecosystem, killing many smaller insects that previously kept larger and more destructive insects in check. So farmers now have a new set of destructive insects to worry about. And guess which company has an insecticide for them?

    Many of Monsanto’s claims regarding higher output from GMO seeds have also been found to be false. One example: Monsanto sold GMO cotton seeds in India that they promised would produce much more cotton and were therefore well worth their much higher cost. India’s cotton farmers had historically planted their own seeds and didn’t have to buy any, so this was a significant cost increase to them. What Monsanto didn’t tell the farmers was that the GMO cotton plants required more water. When a drought hit, the GMO cotton plants weren’t so “productive”, thousands of farmers couldn’t pay back their loans (used to buy the expensive seeds), and the banks foreclosed on them. Of course, Monsanto claimed no responsibility.

    GMO foods are the latest fringe issue.

    I suggested a few years ago that Monsanto will eventually have to create a GMO bee that is resistant to their glysophate poisons in order to pollinate their crops exclusively.
