GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) Gibberish

It is untrue both to say that GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) will kill you and GMOs cannot hurt you. They need safety testing just like other high technology people put into their bodies. GMOs allow plants to be drastically modified to manufacture chemicals that would never appear naturally.

Monsanto refuses to test its products at all. They claim that is the government’s responsibility. This is troubling. GMOs can harm. They can do things plant breeding cannot, like insert a pesticide or herbicide inside the cells where it cannot be washed off or time-degraded. Just because a pesticide is delivered by GMO does not means it is automatically safe.

GMOs become ubiquitous as ingredients in table-ready foods. You want to make sure you are not introducing mysterious allergies that consumers cannot track down or avoid.

There is some slimy dissembling from Monsanto. The modified genes themselves are clearly not harmful. They are just another DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) combo, perfectly digestible. The potential trouble comes from what those genes direct the plant to do.

Why Carbon Taxes are Good for Business

BC Canada enacted a carbon tax. Economists predicted economic doom. However, BC’s economy outperformed all the other provinces in Canada. Economists had a second look to figure out why their predictions were wrong. The tax was revenue neutral. Revenue from the carbon tax was used to reduce income taxes. Reducing income tax stimulated business and spending. Taxing pollution encouraged businesses to modernise and become more efficient and profitable.
