The following link will take you to a video- commentary from scientists and poor subsitance farmers in developing countries.

I know this is a corporate sponsored site, so critics will have their biases, but I think the testimonials speak for themselves. If ever there were a consensus about global warming, the scientific consensus about the improved safety and benefits of biotech crops more than corroborates the positions held in this video.

While politicians are making political hay with a potential global warming crisis, ( with warnings about food shortages, droughts, etc.) there is very little press about the role biotechnology can play in dealing with not only future changes in climate, but the billion people in the world today living on less than a dollar a day.
