Rise of the superweeds and GE crops

The Union of Concerned Scientists have produced an important bulletin on superweeds that have developed as a result of the introduction of GE crops. Industry ‘ssolution is to use more and different kinds of herbicides – that is trying to fix the problem with the thing that caused it in the first place! You’ve got to be a really clever scientist to think of that one!!! Next time you get a hangover from drinking too much, try drinking twice as much and see if that gets rid of the problem (-:

You can see a summary of the bulletin here:
