Herbicide Use To Increase Dramatically 15.8.2014 Environmental News Network
The US is poised to 'deregulate' GMO corn, soybean and cotton varieties resistant to the herbicides 2,4-D and dicamba. The result will be a big increase in the use of those herbicides, as high as 600%. Only a huge public outcry can now stop the GMO-herbicide juggernaut. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has issued its final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and proposed approval for new GMO corn and soybean varieties genetically engineered to be resistant to the toxic herbicide 2,4-D.

Let's Use Organic and GMOs to Feed the World 13.8.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
As anyone who follows food and agriculture issues knows, much of the public discourse -- particularly around genetically modified organisms (GMOs) -- is highly polarized. The debates are often as personal and bitter as the extremes that characterize today's partisan politics. For both personal and professional reasons, I'm among those saddened by the intensity of the conflict. Not only did I grow up on a family farm in Illinois, but 30 years ago I helped develop GMO crops. Yet far more important than my, or anybody's, individual reaction is this: The debate over GMOs has tended to sidetrack progress on the development of a common agenda to solving the global food security problem. And that's unacceptable, because 1) we don't have time to waste, and 2) it actually isn't difficult to figure out where that common ground lies. In fact, I think Jonathan Foley, the recent director of the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota, essentially nailed it in the May 2014 edition of National ...

Ecover, Come Clean About Using Extreme Genetic Engineering in Your Products 9.8.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
If the ingredients in your food and household products were quietly replaced with new substances manufactured by genetically engineered microbes, would you have a right to know? You should, but unfortunately you do not -- and they are. Synthetic biology, an "extreme" form of genetic engineering, has been evolving in biotech labs for years, but as The New York Times recently reported , it's just hit the mainstream. A line of new ingredients -- including vanilla, stevia and saffron excreted by a bioengineered yeast, and a palm and coconut oil substitute squeezed out of synthetic algae -- are rapidly entering consumer products such as food, cosmetic and cleaning supplies. But while consumers know almost nothing about it, some companies are rushing ahead to incorporate this controversial new technology into our everyday products. When Ecover, owner of the popular "green" cleaning company Method, recently announced a switch to algal oil in its laundry detergent, it became the first eco-friendly company to ...
