Watch Free: A Silent Forest: The Growing Threat of Genetically Engineered Trees

Watch Free: A Silent Forest: The Growing Threat of Genetically Engineered Trees
Apr 28, 2013 | Food Freedom News | Rady Ananda

Produced by Global Justice Ecology Project

  
2010 review by Rady Ananda Excerpt:

Imagine our declining pollinators – bees, moths, butterflies and bats – coming upon thousands of acres of toxic trees, genetically engineered so that every cell in the tree exudes pesticide, from crown to root. Imagine a world without pollinators. Without seed dispersers. Without soil microbes.

It would be a silent forest, a killing forest, an alien forest. No wonder Vandana Shiva scoffs at the moniker, biotechnology. “This is not a life technology. It’s a death science.”

Genetically engineered forests are a holocaust on nature. An award-winning documentary, “A Silent Forest: The Growing Threat, Genetically Engineered Trees” (2005, 46 mins) details the appalling effects. (You can buy the full length film at Amazon.)
