I'm sure most of us already 'know' this, but it's interesting that science is addressing it. I still fear though, that what's learned will be used not for mass permaculture projects, but as a way to make better gmo corn that needs less water, and desertlands becoming cornfields.@

While you are most likely correct about the potential abuse I would not worry about it too much, the facts are that their business model is failing at a faster and faster rate. Virtually none of the original claims are being lived up to and most of the potential problems that were pointed out and claimed as not a problem are coming to light. To me it is starting to look like the gmo based business model cannot get anything right. Too often they begin to look like a heroin addict chasing the dragon so to speak.
