GMOs are not the answer - Oppose Casey-Lugar bill
"Changing the focus of US international development policy from direct food aid to agricultural investment in the developing world is a laudable goal. But declarations by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack that biotechnology and GMOs are the answer are misguided and ill-informed. As a recent World Bank/UN report recently concluded, GMOs are unsuited to the developing world. We urge you to oppose Casey-Lugar and any bill that contains earmarks for, investment requirements in or promotion of GMOs abroad."
