Given what Jesus did to the money-lenders, what would he do to the species-benders?
GeneWatch UK today slammed the EU’s new draft rules for approving genetically modified (GM) insects, fish, farm animals and pets. The organisation warned that billions of GM insect eggs and caterpillars would be left in vegetables and fruit if UK company Oxitec’s GM moths and flies are approved by the EU under the new rules. Oxitec’s GM insects have been genetically engineered so their caterpillars die inside olives or tomatoes or on the leaves of cabbages. The company plans to release GM pests across the EU to mate with wild pests in an attempt to reduce their numbers. Millions of GM pests must be released each week to have any effect on wild populations.

When we finally succeed, as we inevitably shall, in wiping mankind off the face of the earth, Gaia will breathe a sigh of relief.
