With this unfortunate battle between ignorance and reason, Robert Saik, who is the CEO of agricultural consulting firm Agri-Trend, decided to step on stage during a TEDx event and call for a pro-GMO movement in defense of this planet’s biological inhabitants.
“We have people today…that intend on ripping technology away from those of us who are actually trying to grow food to feed the planet.” – Robert Saik, CEO of Agri-Trend
“For the first time in the history of plant breeding, the tools of genetic engineering allow us to understand what it is that we’re doing. That’s the real difference. That’s what all this fuss has been about: a radical change in the quality and quantity of information available to us, a move from evolution by natural selection to evolution by intelligent direction.” – Peter H. Diamandis (Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think, p. 103.)
