Stop Genetically Engineered American Chestnut Trees

USDA Must Not Deregulate GMO American Chestnut Trees

“In any revolutionary area, and biotechnology is a revolutionary area, most of our current ideas are wrong. Then I ask you, what the hell is the rush to apply these ideas… we’re still at the very beginning of understanding what we’re doing. The rush to apply these ideas is absolutely dangerous, because we don’t have a clue what the long term impacts of our manipulations are going to be.” - Dr. David Suzuki, geneticist and educator
