While I agree with the arguments of "Anonymous" on the obstacle created by IP rights and the theoretical benefits of GM crops, I would like to stress that neither conditions would be sufficient to solve the hunger problem. \n\nThe hunger problem is not a technical one: it is almost entirely dependent on bad politics and bad governance. No amount of "green revolution" will compensate for corruption, bribery, lack of education, civilian unrest, war, insecurity, lack of storage infrastructures, agricultural subsidies in the developped countries and the like.\n\nThe way food security is seen by biotech is similar to the way biotech medicine sees an illness: it tries to fix it with it's own tool. When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. But hunger is not caused by a lack of appropriate crops, so it cannot be solved by a new one. \n\nHealthcare plays a minute role in keeping people healthy: it's the personal and social determinants upstream that play the major role. The role that the agro-biotech could play to solve the "hunger problem" is also minute. \n\nThe article doesn't frame correctly the problem. It perpetuates a mistake.
