This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Aug. 8, 2012 for week ending Aug. 17, 2012

"We do want to see these kind of genetically-engineered crops regulated more tightly, but I think more importantly, we'd like to see the USDA in particular and Congress in the Farm Bill ... really get more serious about alternatives. What we find is that simple plant breeding can actually achieve the kinds of goals that Monsanto and its competitors talk about more quickly and more cheaply and just more efficiently generally.

– Karen Perry Stillerman, food and environment program manager and senior analyst, Union of Concerned Scientists, on Monsanto's claims of genetically-engineered food crops benefits

Monsanto's slogan is, "we’re all in this together, producing more, conserving more, improving lives.”  Story continues

In 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency promulgated stricter limits on ground-level ozone pollution. Top Environmental Protection Agency officials also expected regulations to protect public health to be enacted, preventing thousands of heart attacks, the spread of asthma and other respiratory illnesses. But, responding to industry pressure, President Obama decided in September of 2011 not to authorize the regulations, blindsiding EPA administrator Lisa Jackson and leading some to speculate that she would resign in protest. But she didn't.  Story continues

The Green Party of the United States has run candidates for president since 1996, when Ralph Nader first undertook a national campaign. Nader’s candidacy four years later in 2000, where he won almost 3 million votes, was the focus of much news coverage when the citizen activist was blamed as a “spoiler” by Democratic candidate Al Gore's supporters. At issue was the former vice president’s loss in the state of Florida by 537 votes, after a controversial U.S. Supreme Court decision prohibited a recount of all ballots cast in the state.  Story continues
