Free market not the solution here!

It's more than just GM grass! Furthermore, GM products ruin the SOIL. GM plants are designed to resist the deadly effects (and therefore allow for greater use of) TOXIC HERBICIDES AND PESTICIDES - which KILL the micro-organisms in the soil, meaning poor soil quality. That, in turn, means, greater and greater need for CHEMICAL FERTILIZERS - which further compacts and DEADENS the soil. This all destroys the natural balance in nature. GOOD LUCK trying to get REAL, NATURAL GRASS to grow in that soil any time soon. P.S. All those chemicals leach into our WATER SUPPLY. Furthermore, in this case, it took 15 YEARS for the "unintended consequence" of the release of a TOXIC GAS that caused cows (weighing 1,500 lbs.) to experience pain and keel over dead within HOURS. Given the MOUNTAINS of evidence that GM products are harmful to humans, aren't health problems enough - short of simultaneous mass death? How about this. How about we let the free market work for everything EXCEPT where ENGINEERS have messed up the perfect natural world trying to play GOD?

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
