New research shows GMO crops have boosted yield, and other projects are in the works to expand on those global gains while reducing environmental impacts and supporting food security.
In keeping with what some perceive as an international trend, the anti-GMO movement in Hawaii is shriveling, prompting it to adopt new fear-mongering tactics directed at agricultural pesticides in a bid to stay relevant and solicit funds.
Five years after he publicly apologized for his anti-GMO activism, Mark Lynas offers a proposal for a peaceful resolution to the contentious fight over genetic engineering. "So let’s stop fighting, and let’s start uniting."
Hopes that the world might be seeing an early peak in global carbon emissions were dashed today with the release of the latest Global Carbon Project report, which shows fossil fuel emissions hitting a new all-time record of 37 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide.
Hawaii papaya farmer Michael Kamiya discusses returning to the family farm and the benefits and challenges of growing GMO crops.
The Alliance for Science convened its first global farmer training this week to ask farmers what they need and help them share their compelling stories.
The Alliance for Science celebrates three years and announces $10M-by-2020 fundraising campaign seeded with $6.4 million grant from Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Mark Lynas reports that although many papers have been published claiming that genetically engineered (GMO) foods are harmful and that humans aren't changing the climate, not a single one of them stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny.
Though genetically engineered ("GMO") crops have spawned a slew of films and documentaries, they've invariably presented inaccurate information and an anti-GMO point of view. The new “Food Evolution” movie, with its balance, depth and credibility, serves to correct the scales.
The cultivation of genetically engineered (GE) crops has hit a new global peak, resulting in significant economic and environmental benefits, according to a report from the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri‐biotech Applications (ISAAA). Nearly 90 percent of the crops were grown by small-holder farmers, and developing nations planted 56 percent of the total.
