  1. Piffy!

    thanks for the link, Redditor. Interesting to see allthe GMO apologists making numerous inaccurate claims in that theread, such as “GMO is the only thing that can feed a starving world’.

    This, of course, is demonstrably false, as the only real reason for any food shortages is geo-politics and not an actual LACKING of food.

    Birke must be making osme good points if the mad food scientists have to attack him.

    Also, the video is now well over 112 thousand views. kinda cool.
