Selective breeding is a form of genetic modification.

Thanks for those videos Wallace. It's obvious Cool Blue didn't even watch them.
I applaud the conservative government in their effort to get rid of the Canadian Wheat Board. The 1 hour video clearly shows their involvement with Monsanto. As far as I know all wheat grown here in central Alberta is all GMO wheat. On another thread I posted about one of my customers who herbicided, insecticided, and eventually had to fungicide his wheat crop. The farmers in Western Canada can only sell their wheat to the CWB and obviously they want only "perfect" Monsanto Wheat. That is why it is so important to get rid of the CWB, so farmers can grow organic wheat crops if they so chose.

Um, selective breeding good. Genetic modification bad.

Because the long term effects of it are just being realized. Just like our Prime Minister said, the long term effects being heart disease and cancer.
You really should watch it, Cool Blue. Also you should watch the two hour video on Monsanto. It's a real eye opener. But maybe you don't want your eyes to be opened?

Of course you have heard a lot of bad things about them; capitalists are evil, didn't you know?

We've been eating genetically modified corn for around 20 years now.

Like I said on SDA In fairness, most trucks are "flex-fuel" now. It allows them to claim tax credits as an "alternative fuel" vehicle despite the fact that their owners will probably never fill them with alternative fuels.



I need some help with the Flex-Fuel things,
What fuel can I use? and where can I get it?

It can use regular gasoline, or "E85" which is 85% ethanol-15% gasoline.

E85 is hard to find. I only know of one gas station in the Ottawa area that has it.

Anything that makes gasoline expensive is political suicide.

Quote:
LONDON -- After hundreds of angry drivers shut down highways in England yesterday in protest against green automobile taxes, and drivers and fishermen in France and Spain paralyzed their ports and roads in a fuel-tax protest, politicians began to signal Europe's ambitious emission-control policies may soon have to be abandoned.

While Europe has led the way in using tax incentives to encourage people to buy low-emission cars and to build carbon-neutral houses in order to meet Kyoto targets, it has become increasingly apparent that inflation-battered voters are no longer willing to go along.

Political leaders in Britain and France are seeking the reversal of tax policies designed to make polluting vehicles more expensive, with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and some British ministers calling on their own governments and the European Union to relax ecologically friendly taxes in order to give relief to citizens suffering from fast-rising food and fuel prices.

I got yer carbon tax right here...

Gasoline is going to go up even higher, and it is going to be economical suicide. As a society we will have no choice but to seek alternative fuels, unless we want to pay through the nose. And being that we are all conservative here, that will never do. :lol:

How many decades have you been making that prediction for? Just curious, people have been wrong on peak oil for close to 100 years now, just wondering why you think you are right this time?

I guess it all depends if you believe in Hubbard's Peak. The point at which demand for oil exceeds production. Some say it has already arrived.
