Who Owns Nature?


ETC Group News Release: "'About one-quarter of the world's biomass has already been commodified,' explains ETC Group's Pat Mooney. 'With extreme genetic engineering, we're seeing new corporate strategies to capture and commodify the three-quarters of the world's biomass that has, until now, remained beyond the market economy.'"
One QUARTER?? Quite a boast; considering what Oceanographers tell us I might call them out on that one, but the trend is nonetheless disturbing, even without the many GM horror stories
