WorldCitizen: vossiewulf: After being in the field for 15 years it suddenly releases large amounts of cyanide gas? Not going to say that's impossible, but it seems unlikely. At a minimum I would be looking for some radical change in conditions to begin to provide a rational explanation how plants could suddenly radically change their behavior. And I'd want to know how concentrations of cyanide gas high enough to kill 800lb cows somehow did not affect at all the people running around trying to help them.

I'm not saying that something isn't off here, because it certainly sounds like it is. But cows eat the grass meaning they keep their faces and snouts basically in the grass. Humans don't tend to walk around with their noses in the grass.

That field needs to be burned down to the roots, all the fields near it too as a precaution. Might be nothing, but a mutation like that cannot be allowed to take root... so to speak. If you want to get rid of a new species you don't wait until it is everywhere first.

Tifton 85 is a hybrid that includes an African grass, so obviously this is Obama's fault and evidence that Agenda 21 is underway.

Yeah, laugh, but you know we'll see something on WND or a similar spot claiming exactly this. 50% chance *that* story gets greenlit on fark.

Oh god so much this. I can't wait until this is all Obama's fault because the jack-booted thugs at the FDA forced Monsanto to use a bunch of experimental chemicals from George Soros' plants.

Coelacanth: The big problem here is that GMOs hybridize like crazy according to my sources.


The anti-GMO movement is often motivated by fear, informed by fallacy, and driven by hysteria. More at 11.

This.

But it will now be forever spread as truth in anti-GM-Foods hysteria, no matter what the outcome of this, if it is even reported.

Story done, time for the next chicken little. GM of course.
