Summary
"The purpose of Genetically Modified Planet is to go beyond environmental rhetoric to investigate for concerned nonscientists the state of scientific research on genetically modified plants." "The prevailing notion among many people and in the press is that the environmental impacts of biotechnology are negative. After examining the science, C. Neal Stewart, Jr., argues that there are indeed real and potential risks to growing engineered crops, but that there are also real and overwhelmingly positive environmental benefits."--Jacket
