Testament to modern science...

Photographic Adventure Reveals the Frightening Deadness of Genetically Engineered Corn Field
This article describes a testament to modern science. With all our technology and wisdom, we have created something unique on the face of the earth. We have created a sustainable vacuum, emptiness, death. Vast areas where nothing can live except one thing... Our food.  This cries against every law of nature and the fundamental process of life. This stops the food chain in its tracks and destroys the circle of life.
Its not just gmo crops at fault here, underneath it lies the businesses of poison based agriculture. Underneath that less the approach of mono cropping (planting but one thing across vast fields) and behind that  lies a selfish desire for cheap tasty food instead if wholesome nutrition.  This destruction of our lands is not new with gmo science, the science allowing huge single crops has been maturing for decades. Gmo crops are just the next extension of that science rooted in the desire for cheaper food. But... It is the step at which people start to see the damage in a new way. The point at which we must put a stake in the ground and say enough is enough.
What we desperately need to ensure a decent life for our grandchildren is to stop the madness today. The best way to do this is to buy only organic and local. This truly does work. Its fundamentally the desire for riches that brought us to where we are (the brink of worldwide irreparable disaster) and we can use the love of money to return to healthy sanity. If a majority of people would demand (through their purchasing dollars) local organic food only, monocropping would disappear in short time (not decades). This is capitalism, money talks. Let's use it to change our world for the better.
