Three University professors received a $5.7 million grant from the National Science Foundation on Jan. 1 to research the effects of ground-level ozone on corn. Is more genetic modification what we need?
"5.7 million dollars to study ... get this ... CORN!"
She then goes on to start yammering about not needing more genetically modified corn.
This is the problem with having the unprepared making commentaries about science. The article in the Daily Illini states that they will be using crosses -- classic, old school plant breeding -- to achieve the goal.
Sorry, folks. I know these smart asses think they are being clever, but ignorance is not an admirable trait.
2. Not long ago there were holes in the ozone protective layer in the atmosphere due to Greenhouse
Gasses. Now there is too much? What? If there is too much O3 on the ground, then why is the study about looking for a genetic solution instead of finding and stopping the source of O3? Has the wind stopped blowing in the Corn Belt?
This sounds fishy to me.
Is the study really about radiation and growing corn on Mars? (My thought are fishy too! What fun.)
