I am not.

The old way of modifying plants, by selective breeding, is really too slow with about 7 billion humans eating everything they can get.
Is obvious.

On the other hand, there can be down-sides just as easily
There are, not only can... Bananas are having tought times because they got modified to loose the seeds, like some kind of grapes. They get multiplied by cutting. There now is a new thing attacking the banana trees, if we loose the trees there will be no more bananas, because there are no more old seeds.

Those against? It's easier to argue against against productivity enhancements when your belly is full. A kind of snobbery.
I am not arguing against the enhancements. I am arguing against the methods of the people.

Aside from those like myself, who consider it a necessity for survival (finally answering your question), there's money to be made.
I know and have told about it in other messages too. And as long there is a business there will be hurry to be first and make the big bucks. And that's part of the problem.

Summary - risk/reward is the answer. As the urgency for solutions increases, risk/reward gets skewed towards risk.
And I really hope that they never prove me right.

Basically, "those in charge" just have to not be stupid. Arguably, too much to ask.
Already confirmed in several times... they do are (most of them, no matter which side) Sigh | :sigh: Or even worst... they are not stupid, but they don't give a crap on the rest of the world as long as they get their benefit (and I think that might be more dangerous)
M.D.V. Wink | ;)

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
