Support AB 541 about genetic engineering in California! Currently under consideration, this important bill would protect California farmers and the food supply in four ways:
1. Establishes the right of farmers and landowners to compensation for economic losses due to genetic contamination of their crops
2. Protects farmers from being sued by a GE manufacturer if their crop is contaminated by that company's GE product.
3. Establishes a county-level GE crop notification process so that farmers can trace contamination to the GE manufacturer
4. Protects the food supply by prohibiting the open-field cultivation of genetically engineered food crops used to produce drugs and biologics such as hormones and antibiotics.
A while back I had to link to my favorite blog
. This guy
is really insightful. Now I'll link to a "real" site I just launched -- not my own personal one. APPen.org stands for Attachment Parents of the Peninsula
, which is a regional parenting group in the San Fransisco Bay Area. Play groups
and the mail list have been great for my family.
