Monsanto & GMOs: U.S. Government Allowing GMOs: Genetically Engineered Crops on Wildlife Refuges


The U.S. government has been allowing the planting of genetically engineered (GE) crops on over 50 National Wildlife refuges throughout the country, allegedly to help promote the exporting of GE crops, according to an investigation of emails obtained by an environmental ‘watchdog’ group.

But now comes news via a recent Truthout.org investigation of government emails between administration officials and agribusiness industry executives, concerning the on-going planting of GE crops in over 50 wild life refuges throughout the U.S.
The rationale for this effort — as described in the emails – is “habitat restoration” where Roundup ready crops are planted so as to survive the spraying of Roundup on invasive weeds, and thus maintain and/or rebuild vegetation cover, presumably.
