[Andy writes...] There’s a debate raging in some corners of the internet regarding how we should view genetic modification of plants in our world. We can all agree that a healthy food supply and a clean environment are top priorities, but how GMOs fit in is not always clear. Earlier this week I was in the middle of retweeting some commentary on the subject when I was struck mid-click by a question: does anyone even care about this? There are so many causes and arguments and debates in the world, who cares if I support one side or another regarding genetic modification of plants? Maybe this is just another argument in the never-ending cesspool of arguments on the internet. Why do I care? Should anyone else care too?
