Daily Camera: GMO Debate Questions Meaning of Sustainability
Interesting article by Laura Snider for the Daily Camera. Six farmers who lease open space land from Boulder County asked for permission to grow GMO (genetically modified) sugarbeets on that land. Boulder County's Food and Agriculture Policy Council, after hearing impassioned testimony from both sides, eventually decided not to allow the GMO crops. However, the decision wasn't as clear-cut as one might think.
