  - This is such a cool thing! (so to speak) I really appreciate you posting this update. rec'd (nt)  scarletwoman   Nov-18-07 08:55 PM   #1 
  - There's a great New Yorker piece on this from sometime in Oct  al bupp   Nov-18-07 10:44 PM   #4 
     - I appreciate the link. Unfortunately, my slow dialup makes even audio files out of reach.  scarletwoman   Nov-19-07 06:01 PM   #18 
  - K&R. (nt)  Kurovski   Nov-18-07 09:16 PM   #2 
  - Sick. How about protecting the existing crop diversity by outlawing GM crops? (n/t)  FreepFryer   Nov-18-07 10:38 PM   #3 
  - You think that would solve the problem?  MonkeyFunk   Nov-18-07 10:45 PM   #5 
  - Saving pristine stock isn't "sick"  kgfnally   Nov-18-07 10:49 PM   #6 
  - GM crops aren't going to outlawed anytime soon  Canuckistanian   Nov-18-07 10:52 PM   #8 
  - Not that simple - it's also about saving thousands and thousands of landraces and varieties  hatrack   Nov-18-07 11:01 PM   #9 
     - 'saving' them is fine. Focusing on 'archiving' them instead of reversing the destruction isn't.  FreepFryer   Nov-18-07 11:06 PM   #11 
        - It's known as "division of labor". One groups takes care of archiving. Others are fighting GM foods.  scarletwoman   Nov-19-07 05:50 PM   #15 
           - Well, he is anti-GM.  Bornaginhooligan   Nov-19-07 05:57 PM   #17 
              - Cheap shot. And completely beside the point, in any case.  scarletwoman   Nov-19-07 06:03 PM   #19 
                 - If we favor this kind of apocalyptic mindset over restraining GM crops, we're screwed.  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 06:39 PM   #21 
                    - Yes, if we don't restrain GM crops, it'll be an apocalypse.  Bornaginhooligan   Nov-19-07 06:40 PM   #22 
                    - You're already seeing 'Roundup Resistant' crops invading and displacing natural ones.  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 06:44 PM   #23 
                       - And?  Bornaginhooligan   Nov-19-07 06:45 PM   #24 
                          - And what? I've made my point. Focusing on 'cold storage' does nothing to ensure biodiversity. (n/t)  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 06:45 PM   #25 
                             - You're saying the roundup ready weeds got into the cold storage facility?  Bornaginhooligan   Nov-19-07 06:47 PM   #26 
                                - Of course not. Are you serious or just trolling? (nt)  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 06:48 PM   #27 
                                   - Well if round-up weeds did not get into the cold storage facility...  Bornaginhooligan   Nov-19-07 06:49 PM   #28 
                                      - Yawn. (n/t)  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 06:50 PM   #29 
                                         - That's what I thought.  Bornaginhooligan   Nov-19-07 06:50 PM   #30 
                                            - Yawn x2 (n/t).  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 06:51 PM   #31 
                                               - Is yawning going to protect biodiversity?  Bornaginhooligan   Nov-19-07 06:51 PM   #32 
                                                  - Have a lovely day, brought to you by Monsanto Agribusiness. (n/t)  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 06:53 PM   #33 
                                                  - Deleted message  Name removed   Nov-19-07 06:54 PM   #34 
                    - You have no argument, period. Preserving seed stock is a good thing no matter what.  scarletwoman   Nov-19-07 07:00 PM   #35 
                       - I do have an argument - it's that the mindset behind storing seeds is false hope.  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 07:02 PM   #36 
                          - It's more than we would have if they weren't doing it at all. Would you prefer that NO seeds were  scarletwoman   Nov-19-07 07:13 PM   #37 
                             - No, as I've said I object to doomsday thinking v. responsible stewardship, not to seed storage. (nt)  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 07:17 PM   #38 
                                - So, you don't object to seed storage, right? And seed storage is what's being done.  scarletwoman   Nov-19-07 07:35 PM   #39 
                                   - No, I've made my point. Focusing on seed storage as a means of protecting diversity is flawed.  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 07:39 PM   #40 
                                      - The thing is, it's NOT the only thing that's happening. Just because THIS group is focused on seed  scarletwoman   Nov-19-07 08:25 PM   #41 
                                         - I didn't say it was 'the only thing happening' - and thank God it isn't.  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 08:28 PM   #42 
                                            - Outrage without action accomplishes nothing. Until the corporate genetic privateers are defeated,  scarletwoman   Nov-19-07 09:04 PM   #43 
                                               - But alas, fascinated acceptance of Doomsday precautions without outrage accomplishes worse than that  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 09:07 PM   #44 
  - Very admirable accomplishment  Canuckistanian   Nov-18-07 10:50 PM   #7 
  - Exactly - like taking a photo of a Picasso before you 'improve' it with cave paints.  FreepFryer   Nov-18-07 11:04 PM   #10 
     - I don't understand why it has to be one or the other. Both need to be done.  enough   Nov-19-07 07:41 AM   #12 
        - It doesn't. But focusing on this, rather than eliminating GM crop contamination, is sick. (n/t)  FreepFryer   Nov-19-07 08:23 AM   #14 
  - Way cool !  CT_Progressive   Nov-19-07 07:43 AM   #13 
  - If the purpose is to protect seeds from disasters...  Bornaginhooligan   Nov-19-07 05:56 PM   #16 
  - I've heard of this project --very glad indeed to see it going forward. nt  Hekate   Nov-19-07 06:06 PM   #20
