It is almost too easy! Of course I am going to ask you to discuss Genetically Modified Organisms! Please read the following article from Vanity Fair (2008). The article is a little long, but if you are not familiar with the Monsanto Company and their Round-up ready seeds (genetically modified to resist the pesticide Round Up), then it will be eye-opening. The articled by Whitman provides a slightly different viewpoint.
This discussion board is intended to promote an open-ended discussion- we will see where your comments take us. I want your ecologically- and ethically- driven opinion on these articles and their contents.
