UK scientists have received a US$10 million grant for research into GM crops in one of the biggest investments in the field. The British public remains skeptical of GM foods, a recent report suggesting they pose both environmental and health threats.

The multi-million investment from UK-based charity the Gates Foundation will be used to cultivate GM modified corn, wheat and rice.

When the big philanthropist has ruined the natural world he can whip out the seeds from his seed bank and make another few billions and start all over again.

Isn't it a bit funny he's also a big donor in the Norwegian seed bank that stores non GMO renewable seeds for a post apocalyptic future?

Well, considering the recent drought and I would expect long-term weather problems, they need scientists to come up with something. So, this grant money could be thought as a desperate measure. I guess, Octo, that excludes your weather control conspiracy theory.
