Crickets here from the usual paid trolls and mindless cheerleaders for corporate chemistry. It’s not so easy to pretend anymore that GM foods are about crop yields and global nutrition.
The case that Monsanto’s interests were control of the food supply and ever-increasing sales of glyphosate has been laid out again and again, and the chorus of scorn has been equally relentless. Anyone who dares to suggest that a corporation with a history of lying for profit is once again lying for profit, well they must be some kind of, take your pick, reactionary, religious fundamentalist, leftover hippie, naive fool, must hate science in general.
It’s always been BS, and hopefully this case and others to follow will finally connect the dots for ordinary people who have been spraying this stuff around on their properties and getting exposure from living near farms. It’s tragic that farmers themselves have been duped and poisoned, and it’s disgusting that both the left and the right have been part of the denial, for different reasons.
The libertarians and the corporate trolls I expect to be unconcerned about, you know, cancer. But the way so many “liberals” have smeared the whistleblowers and the unconvinced is just appalling. In what universe is Monsanto a friend of progressives? On what planet have major corporations been interested in public health and nutrition? Scientific method = good. Corporate science = at best unreliable, and at worst a threat to our survival.
