Greenpeace and other environmental outfits have furthered their anti-corporate message with a stance against genetically-modified foods. On their official web site, they warn, "they pose unacceptable risks to ecosystems, and threaten biodiversity, wildlife, and sustainable forms of agriculture."It is a disturbing and vile reality, a hideous world of soul-less people who tell lies that condemn millions of children and their parents to agonizing death or vast, unimaginable suffering -- just so they can continue to perpetuate the myth that they stand alone against the vast religious/government/military complex of the United States that threatens civilization itself.
Their scientific evidence? Hey, who needs scientific evidence when you can scare people into thinking the only way to save the planet is to eat all-organic foods?
In 2002, Greenpeace and other organizations helped convince Zambia and other impoverished nations to reject thousands of pounds of free, genetically-engineered maize because it was "poisoned," despite the fact Americans have been eating it since the mid-1990s with no adverse health effects.
We're talking about countries where millions are starving to death every year and now we have members of Greenpeace, who come from countries where food is abundant and plentiful, telling them they shouldn't eat genetically-engineered produce because it's "dangerous" based upon a complete lack of scientific data.
If you can find a better definition of moral hypocrisy, I would love to hear it.
Oh yeah, and protect their multi-million dollar PR and legal jobs.
This is just part of the picture. Please read Mr Levinson's entire op-ed at The Daily Campus for the complete view.
