Greenpeace chop down the CSIRO’s wheat patch

By johnboy - 14 July 2011 101

The ABC reports that Greenpeace activists have hit the CSIRO’s genetically modified wheat crop here in Canberra:

In the early hours of this morning a group of Greenpeace protesters scaled the fence of the CSIRO experimental station at Ginninderra in the capital’s north.

Greenpeace says activists were wearing Hazmat protective clothing and were equipped with weed string trimmers.

They say the entire crop of genetically modified wheat has been destroyed.

What’s Your opinion?

Dear Greenpeace.
I have unleashed some Genetically Modified lawn in my front and back yard.

You know what to do.

Stuff that, get emo grass.

Quite a while! 🙂

Admittedly I saw it posted somewhere else (can’t remember where) and lol’d myself!
