This is one reason why people voted for Obama, otherwise known as a "Democrat." It's telling that there should be an organization "Republicans For Environmental Protection" (aka ConservAmerica). Or that the 71 senators who voted AGAINST it being a state's right to require GMO labeling on products sold within that state were apparently all Republicans. http://www.hangthebankers.com/the-71-sellout-senators-named-...
I'm not saying Democrats deliver. They can be hypocrites: the president broke his vote-gaining campaign promise re GMO-labeling, and Bill Gates (with stock in Monsanto) can't promote genetic engineering enough; and they can go overboard, e.g., NYC's arrogant mayor & regulation of soda size. But people are becoming aware that there are *critical* environment/agriculture/food issues that need to be addressed - and who trusts Republicans to honestly address them?
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
