Destruchtion of other 'abuses' of the world would be much more valuable. Even manipulated plants would sooner or later adapt to the really real an current world sooner or later. Plants do not much harm the planet but humans possibly do. To roll over a field is much easier and violent than to discuss carefully! Please stay away from innocent plants!
