Jan 30, 2009

My 12 year old daughter has created a petition in her fight to put an end to Nuclear Power in Ontario. I am reaching out to you in hopes that you can support her efforts by signing her petition and reach out to people that can help her meet her goal of 5000 signatures. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/no-nuclear

The Deadly Genetically Engineered Bacteria that Almost Got Away: A
Cautionary Tale

Web Note: In the early 1990s a European genetic engineering company was
preparing to field test and then commercialize on a major scale a
genetically engineered soil bacteria called Klebsiella planticola. The
bacteria had been tested--as it turns out in a careless and very
unscientific mannner--by scientists working for the biotech industry and
was believed to be safe for the environment. Fortunately a team of
independent scientists, headed by Dr. Elaine Ingham of Oregon State
University, decided to run their own tests on the gene-altered Klebsiella
planticola. What they discovered was not only startling, but terrifying--
the biotech industry had created a biological monster--a genetically
engineered microorganism that would kill all terrestrial plants. After
Ingham's expose, of course the gene-altered Klebsiella planticola was never
commercialized. But as Ingham points out, the lack of pre-market safety
testing of other genetically altered organisms virtually guarantees that
future biological monsters will be released into the environment. Moreover
it's not only genetic engineering that poses a mortal threat to our soil
ecology, the soil food web, as Ingham calls it. Chemical-intensive
agriculture is slowly but surely poisoning our soil and our drinking water
as well.
