Redesigning Evolution

By Amory Lovins

In this letter published in Science, Amory Lovins responds to an editorial by Roger Beachy promoting the benefits of genetically modified foods. In his response, Lovins argues that there are negative ecological implications of genetically modified food and that it amounts to redesigning evolution. Lovins also argues that the FDA and EPA do not do an adequate job regulating these crops and resulting foods. This document includes a rebuke of Beachy’s editorial by the Council for Responsible Genetics and a response from Beachy.
