Yes, liberal media seems to be coming around. To me the Atlantic article seems balanced but what do I know. These days "fair and balanced" means that if one is going to argue with facts and consensus science one must also give complete and utter bullshit equal time.
The Atlantic article on the other hand is siding with data and science and actually calling the "just label it" crowd frauds! Even linking the word fraud to William Saletan's excellent takedown of the anti-GMO movement he wrote for Slate.
Pleasantly surprised, no sarcasm needed. Now if I could just get Bernie Sanders to read them. Bernie is an American politician running for President that makes complete sense on virtually all issues except GMOs and gun control. He's changing his tune a bit on gun control, GMO is next. A tough row to hoe since Bernie is from the 100% granola eating state of Vermont.
When it comes to major anthropogenic sources of methane (an important greenhouse gas), livestock and leaky natural gas wells and pipelines might come to mind. However, rice cultivation is also among the largest sources. Microbes in wetlands, where water saturation leads to low-oxygen conditions, produce most of the world’s methane, and rice paddies are essentially human-controlled wetlands. Down in the warm muck of a rice paddy, the roots of the rice plant release some organic compounds, and they eventually die off and decay themselves, providing the food that microbes turn into methane. Researchers are working on ways to limit that methane production, but this will always be a secondary concern for farmers. Yields rule the day, especially as demand is growing. But a 2002 study hinted at a win-win: increase above-ground growth at the expense of below-ground growth, and yield goes up while methane production goes down. A great idea, but how to make it happen? A group of researchers led by Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences researchers Jun Su, Changquan Hu, and Xia Yan have used a gene from barley to create a genetically modified rice plant that does just that.
