OCA Reader Posts: “Irresponsible, Dangerous, and Stupid” Is the Unofficial Slogan of the USDA

“Irresponsible, Dangerous, and Stupid” Is the Unofficial Slogan of the USDA

“Let’s bring into our country a genetically-engineered, non-native tree that is known to be wildly invasive, explosively flammable, and insatiably thirsty for ground water. … Yes, this would be irresponsible, dangerous, and stupid – but apparently ‘Irresponsible, Dangerous, and Stupid’ is the unofficial slogan of the U.S. Department Agriculture.”

Ahh, nothing like government worship to start your week off right, is there? I just had to put this info out there.  According to the Organic Consumer’s Association, other countries that can’t plant GMO trees in their countries are bringing them to the USA(aka: USA=GMO Dumping Ground):

Substantially owned by International Paper, ArborGen shipped tissue from Brazilian eucalyptus trees to its New Zealand laboratories, where it was genetically altered to have more cellulose. New Zealand, however, outlaws plantings of genetically-engineered crops, so ArborGen sought out a more corporate-compliant country: Ours. The engineered eucalyptus was waved right into the good ol’ USA to be cloned, and it’s now awaiting final approval for outdoor release in our land.
