1. I wonder if the"science moms" have a comment on Monsanto's addition of dicamba to its

 

pesticide cocktail. Apparently, the glyphosate is becoming ineffective (as predicted) so the highly volatile dicamba is being employed to wipe out all forms of life that aren't Monsanto soybeans.

2. Ah, so you came by to display the usual anti-glyphosate routine.



It's too bad you can't respond to the actual content of the video, much less offer up a post that shows any actual understanding of the products in question, how they're used, or why, but that's par for the course.

3. My response was to the content of the video. They appear to have an agenda.

 

The trailers are most adamant about promoting GMOs. They make slight mention of other issues like homeopathy, thimerisol, etc. Does the film tackle teaching creationism in science classes? I guess we'll find out.

Don't you think that the addition of dicamba indicates that Monsanto's approach is unsustainable?

4. Yes, their agenda is pro science.

Your agenda does not appear to follow science, nor actual sustainability.

6. We already know you don't like science.

You don't have to prove it, again, though your decision to laugh out loud at science is rather interesting.

7. Has glyphosate lost effectiveness?

8. Thank you for showing that you don't understand the topic.

Of course, you already showed us that. Why show it again?

9. What am I not understanding about 'glyphosate effectiveness?'

 

You, OTOH, are tap dancing.

10. Hmm. Giving you links to help you begin to understand is "tap dancing."

Meanwhile, your history of promoting complete nonsense of this issue, is well known.

11. I said glyphosate would become ineffective. The addition of dicamba validates it.

 

Don't you agree?

12. You're just repeating yourself.

In other words, understanding the issue does not matter to you.

Now everyone can see that, too!

Thanks!

13. From your link:

 

The PLOS ONE study shows pretty convincingly that the resistant plants have been out there for a very long time. And if we continually spray the same herbicides, we’ll eventually find them all!


I would encourage multicultural agriculture and biodiversity. Your corporate model prohibits those things, doesn't it?

14. And you continue to show that you don't understand the topic by using a quote out of context.

When you decide to confess that you don't understand something, you really go all out!

15. Your attempts at rhetoric are pitiful. What have we established?

 

  • That your film is a bit of pro-GMO propaganda.
  • That glyphosate is losing effectiveness.
  • That the Monsanto bio-corporate model is unsustainable.

You didn't present anything to refute these statements. The article I quoted from certainly didn't contradict me. I don't understand what it is you say I don't understand. Why don't you answer questions?

16. You have made baseless claims, repeatedly.

That is what we have established. You do not care about reality, and are choosing to promote nonsense.

That sucks!

17. I claim dicamba was added because glyphosate was becoming ineffective.

 

Why else?
