Geoff Lawton has taught more than 6,000 students in over 30 countries on how to grow food in the most efficient and ecologically friendly way possible through permaculture design science, so he knows as well as anyone what a healthy ecosystem and healthy plants should look like.
And as you’ll see on Lawton’s recent clip of both a thriving natural prairie landscape and a GMO cornfield used for feeding animals in factory farms, the GMO cornfield simply doesn’t measure up.
In the clip, Lawton (you can follow him on Facebook here) starts off at the prairie and then crosses over to the GMO field.
“…There’s a great diversity of plants here of all types, this has supported huge herds of animals grazing through in sequenced events,” he says while examining the prairie scene. But he finds a completely different scene upon crossing the road.
“This is an Insane Way to Think About How We Produce Our Food”
The difference between walking through a prairie landscape, with tons of plant diversity and cover for the soil, and a GMO cornfield is absolutely striking, as you’ll see in the video below.
“This is not farming. This is a plant factory on the ground,” Lawton says.
“There’s no life here at all…This is a way of converting fossil fuels into money through food, that’s all.”
The big corporations that mass produce GMOs call them “sustainable,” but after viewing the video below it’s hard to imagine how anyone could think that way…
