Who benefits from GM crops? The great climate change swindle

1 September 2010

Claims that genetically modified (GM) crops can solve hunger remain unproven, while a new claim has recently emerged that GM crops will be one of the solutions to combatting climate change. On the basis of these claims,the industry is lobbying hard at the UN's climate change negotiations, in order to have GM crops and industrial farming methods recognized (and financed) as climate change mitigation techniques. This report finds the industrys claims that they will be useful in both tackling and adapting to climate change exaggerated and premature.
