Ya'll need to know---iffin' you doan already know-- that they's a fierce problem brewing over yore food.
Last week the United Nations' Convention on Biodiversity upheld a moritorium on Terminator seeds that's been in place for six years...I ain't no fan of the UN, and we know that the UN was about to knuckle under to big agriculture interests, but smaller farmers proteted worldwide to keep these frankenstein seeds in the labs and out of the fields.
Monsanto has aholt of a patent for Terminator seeds--seeds that grow genetically engineered terminator plants. They will grow jes' one season, and the seeds they make won't germinate, but worse--this plant will kill, "terminate" any plant that it pollenates. This means that when the wind blows the pollen of this plant across the field to yore own patch of strawberries, why mah pets, this alien fiend will kill yore berries!
This terminator technology is meant to make sure you doan "steal" Monsanto's fancy seeds that they spent billions of R&D $$$ on. So if you buy their fancy hybrids, you cain't save the seeds for next season--nope, jes' cause they want you to buy a new batch of seeds each time youse settin' out yore garden, they's willin' to kill any other in the species nearby--Lawdy, sounds like a famine is a 'comin'. Think, when they's nothin' left on earth that will grow but Monsanto seed , why, they can name their price for a packet of seed.
