Russian State Duma Passes Total Ban on GMO Crops and Animals

A kick in the keester for "Corporate So-called Science" and an embrace of common sense as dictated by actual independent science. Too bad - a true pity - that the USDA and FDA are essentially 'Captured Agencies' and serve not the people of the USA, but the corporate chemical-GMO machine.

"Russia’s State Duma adopted Friday the third and final reading of a government bill that introduces a total ban on the cultivation and breeding in Russia of genetically modified (GM) plants and animals, except for scientific research purposes."

Romney-Cruz - Holy Moley Republican ticket

Why can't Repubes have two "chosen ones" on the ticket?

Or is that logically inconsistent? No matter. This is the Republican Party we're talking about, and so logic and consistency are irrelevant.

Boycott the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Blowback Time.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce really needs to hear from the public, and to be publicly spanked for joining a freaking anti-solar crusade, as detailed in the OP started by babylonsister:

I'm sure they will welcome comments from American consumers (aka human beings) via email and social media. Contact: https://www.uschamber.com/about-us/chamber-commerce-the-united-states-america-contact-us

U.S. Chamber of Commerce joins anti-solar crusade
By Ben Adler on Jun 15, 2016

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the latest conservative group to start spreading anti-solar messages. In an email sent to supporters on Wednesday, the chamber attacks net metering, a policy in place in many states that pays people with solar panels on their roofs for the electricity they feed into the grid.

Yet another GMO failure: Golden Rice a badass boondoggle

Science Daily has just served up yet another example of how the massive GMO PR campaigns, and the armies of corporate trolls, have relentlessly created a vast bogus story about the alleged "benefits" of GMOs that over time has proved to be a crock of dangerously wrong BS.

"Heralded on the cover of Time magazine in 2000 as a genetically modified (GMO) crop with the potential to save millions of lives in the Third World, Golden Rice is still years away from field introduction and even then, may fall short of lofty health benefits still cited regularly by GMO advocates, suggests a new study."
