Yes. I am for GE - the applications for the environment and technology are very exciting, but I think we are running ahead of our ability to understand the consequences when it comes to GE food (unless they are species native genes).

Come on Fish and Wildlife Service. Save Our Salanders!
Amphibian experts get righteously riled about the slow-motion federal response to an extreme, and preventable, threat to American wildlife.

Story
Tagline
Which comes first, Peak Everything or Peak Us? I explore this question daily on http://j.mp/dotEARTH and at Pace Univ. The rest? Family, songs, friends, living.
Introduction
I explore the balance between human affairs and the environment for The New York Times at my blog, Dot Earth, and as the senior fellow for environmental understanding at Pace University's Academy for Applied Environmental Studies. In spare moments I write songs and perform in a rootsy twangy band, Uncle Wade.
Bragging rights
Been to the North Pole; sailed 2/3 of the way around the Earth (New Zealand to Italy); sung with Pete Seeger.
