Debating GMO Crops and Supporting Global Populations

I know that my take on organic & local farming varies slightly from that of many folks around MVCC. I also know that my take on genetically modified crops also varies. Here is a lecture from British journalist Mark Lynas who offers support for GMO crops. To me, this is a debate that is very important, because I have concern that the overly-simplistic GMO campaigns (many that were successful in Europe) do not allow for nuance and recognition that there are useful, valuable, and safe forms of GMO that will be necessary to stabilize the increasing world population.
