Far out! ... Good move. Brazil and the European Union approved #Rimonabant a couple of years ago, but then had to take it off the shelves because people were starting to commit suicide. Pot does NOT cause suicide, but the drugs #BigPharma can lace into anything DO! ... So, take the survey: Would you want your daughter to smoke 'Skinny Girl' pot if you knew it was laced with #Rimonabant? C=> http://goo.gl/forms/DvjUWe2qsy #GotDrugs? #Please #ReTweet

Future table! I want this so much!


In modern agricultural politics, organic farming and genetic engineering occupy opposite ends of the spectrum. In the Ronald-Adamchak household, the world is not so black and white. Ronald is a professor of plant pathology at the University of California, Davis. Adamchak manages the student-run organic farm on campus. Together, they're exploring the juncture where their methods can (and they argue, should) meet to ensure environmentally sustainable food production. Revealing common principles and "leveling the playing field," this book roughly chronicles one year in the lives of the Ronald-Adamchak family. Through dialogue with friends and family, the authors thoughtfully explore the use of GE agriculture and the concerns expressed by consumers. They discuss the contents of their own largely organic pantry, what they choose to feed their children, and how over the last ten years of their marriage, they have developed a specific criteria for the use of GE in agriculture. From their personal vantage points, Ronald and Adamchak explain what geneticists and organic farmers actually do, and help readers distinguish between fact and fiction in the debate about crop genetic engineering. Loosely organized by season, each section of the book addresses a different issue related to the role of GE and organic farming in food production. Raoul provides a farmer's view of the philosophy and practice of organic farming and how it differs from conventional agriculture; Pam describes the tools and processes of genetic engineering, as well as  the potential ecological benefits and risks of using GE technology to generate new crop varieties. At the end of the book, they describe one of their typical family dinners, explain their choice to bring both genetically engineered and organic food to their table, and share some of their family's best recipes.

Reviews:
 
"Open-minded opponents of GE might read Pamela Ronald's and Raoul Adamchak's "Tomorrow's Table." Ronald, a plant biologist, and Adamchak, an organic farmer, argue that GE and organic farming are not only compatible, but can enhance one another."--Donald Wilkerson, guest opinion on dailycamera.com, July 30, 2009.
 
"This book is a tale of two marriages. The first is that of Raoul and  Pam, the authors, and is a tale of the passions of an organic farmer and a plant genetic scientist. The second is the potential marriage of two technologies-organic agriculture and genetic engineering. ...  Like all good marriages, both include shared values, lively tensions, and reinvigorating complementarities. [The authors] share a strong sense of both the wonder of the natural world and how, if treated with respect and carefully managed, it can remain a source of inspiration and provision of our daily needs."--Sir Gordon Conway KCMG FRS, Professor of International Development, Centre for Environmental Policy, Imperial College, London, and past President of the Rockefeller Foundation, from his foreword.
 
"Here's a persuasive case that, far from contradictory, the merging of genetic engineering and organic farming offers our best shot at truly sustainable agriculture. I've seen no better introduction to the ground truth of genetically engineered crops and the promising directions this 'appropriate technology' is heading."--Stewart Brand, creator of the Whole Earth Catalog
 
"Whether you ultimately agree with it or not, Tomorrow's Table brings a fresh approach to the debate over transgenic crops."--Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food and The Omnivore's Dilemma
 
"Welcome as water in the desert-at a time when partisans compete to see who can deliver the hardest slam against those who think differently, what a welcome surprise to find this book building bridges between unnecessary antagonists. The developers of crops improved through biotechnology and the practitioners of organic agriculture want the same thing-a way to grow food that helps farmers tread more gently on the land. Ronald and Adamchak explain how simpatico these two approaches are at heart. For a future that will bring unprecedented challenges we will need all the tools we can muster. Tomorrow's Table shows how organic and biotech can coexist and complement one another. Bravo, and bring on Volume II."--L. Val Giddings, President, PrometheusAB
 
"A unique, personal perspective on the ways in which genetically enhanced crops can improve wholesome agricultural productivity, helping to achieve the low chemical inputs that are the goal of organic agriculture and of those who care about our environment and health. Highly recommended."--Peter H. Raven, President, Missouri Botanical Garden
 
"With the world’s population projected to grow some 50 percent by mid-century, rigorous agricultural planning becomes indispensable to forestall the onset of ecological and human disaster. Ronald and Adamchak, a wife-husband team from the University of California at Davis, combine the training and insights of a geneticist and the know-how of a committed organic farmer. They examine the often-passionate debate about genetically engineered food and how it may affect the food supply of the future, meticulously dissecting arguments for and against such application of science. This wildly eccentric book juxtaposes deep scientific analysis of genetically engineered agriculture with recipes for such homey kitchen staples as cornbread and chocolate chip cookies. In a marvelously useful table, they outline a history of biological technology from 4000 BC through the dawn of the twenty-first century. A glossary of agricultural genetics and an extensive bibliography supplement the text." —Mark Knoblauch, Booklist, April 1, 2008
 
"Genetically-engineered versus organically-grown. It’s a choice often framed as being between science and nature, but it’s a false one, says this wife-husband team. In a literal marriage of two entrenched camps, Ronald, a plant genomics researcher at UC Davis, and Adamchak, an organic gardener, shed light on the unfounded fears of gene modification and the merits a more-holistic approach to agriculture. Recipes include “Sticky Rice with GE Papaya” and “Isolation of DNA from Organically- Grown Strawberries.” - Seed Magazine

Story
Introduction
To say we live in trying times is an understatement. Systems built with good intentions on honorable principles have been corrupted by greed. Our environment is dying. We no longer have the luxury of time or the comfort of complacency.

We no longer live in a world where we can depend on someone else to provide our only source of livelihood. It is up to each individual to discover their passion and follow it, developing a livelihood that sustains basic needs and allows an individual opportunity to improve the quality of life.

Each individual must relentlessly pursue truth & knowledge to develop a vision for the future. Tough analysis of what we have now is necessary if collectively humans are going to co-creatively design a sustainable future. We must change perception by providing facts and encourage creativity as we move forward.

I am wholeheartedly committed to knowing and teaching truth and believe that we must spend every day of our lives proving that Love is our greatest power. Sustainability honors life and I have committed myself to understanding exactly what that means for humanity.
