Stop ECOVANDALISM! It is quite a time to stop begging them not to disturb our work! Let them know that we work for public benefit only! The Government should have a clear position about this, too!
Merete Albrechtsen, Associate professor
Prudent use of GMOs can help the environment and should be supported by environmentalists, not attacked
Peter Langridge, Academic
Vandalism of scientific experiments is an attack on science and inquiry.
We need to continously improve farming methods and genetics to support our global growing population - biotechnology provide us with tools to do so.
David Evans, agro-chemical consultant
Sadly Europe seems not to understand that there is a key future for GM crops to feed ourselves and the world. USA, China, India etc do recognise the potential. USA over many years of use has shown the regulation of the technology is competent to assess the risks.
