You know what the Midwest is? Young and restless.
For many of the world’s people, particularly in Africa and parts of Asia, current agriculture is unable to provide them, in the environments in which they live, with ways of reliably growing the food they need. Some people inhabit regions affected by periods of extreme drought, others experience temperature fluctuations, or sudden incursions of pests, or soaking rains. Opposition to GMOs is largely a European phenomenon, not much heard in the land of the potential producers (North America), nor in those of potential consumers (Africa, Asia). In fact, many of the spokesmen for the world’s poor are impatient with what they see as the scruples of people who do not feel any threat of starvation (Stewart 2004, 161.)
