GMOs are not the answer

Here's some text from an e-mail petition making the rounds:

... the Obama administration along with members of the U.S. Congress are using this singular moment to move their own agenda: propping up U.S. biotechnology companies like Monsanto. They hope to accomplish this by promoting genetically modified seeds and chemical inputs as tools to fight hunger, despite research that shows that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have little impact on crop yield and do not fare well in drought-prone regions that need the most help.


Please have a look and take action.

Here's the petition.

Of course I signed this. I hope you do, too.
