GM Cotton Fiascos Around the World

This is an excellent
in-depth report by the Institute of Science in Society that examines
problems with GE around the world. Including: Indonesia (where many
farmers burned their cotton in protest against the government and
Monsanto); China (where a researcher reports that the technology will
not only be useless within six to seven years, but "could cause a
disaster"); and the U.S. (in Southern Arkansas, despite the use of
supplementary pesticides, 7.5% of the GE crop was destroyed by
bollworm, the very pest it was supposed to kill).
