The reason that GM crops are so hated and feared is that once the wider environment has been contaminated with mutant DNA there is no way of reversing the damage - it is with us for all time. Even radioactivity has a half-life, but genetic pollution is permanent. And that is why the only testing that is acceptable is testing that takes place in a closed system in a laboratory.
It is obvious that the present field trial regime represents the industry and government colluding to make commercial planting a fait accompli. That is why I support Greenpeace and crop-pullers everywhere.
