But isn’t it specifically the case here that the aim is to breed crops resistant to herbicides so that they can be bombarded with even more of these toxic substances thereby killing the wild plants we all too casually call “weeds” on which insect life – and ultimately humanity – depends. It would’ve naive to suggest otherwise. For example, consider what has happened to bees just to mention just one irreplaceable pollinator? How stupid are we!
Just a few days ago, saw on TV a short piece about decline of the monarchs, and suggesting that people plant milkweed in order to help the butterflies. I wonder, where does one go, to buy milkweed seed? Perhaps harvest seed from wild-growing plants?
