A well-respected and popular professor at the University of California in Berkeley has been fired after publishing a scientific paper regarding the uncontrolled contamination of irreplaceable native Mexican corn varieties by genetically engineered corn. Dr. Ignacio Chapela, whose corn contamination article was published in the science journal "Nature," was denied his tenure due to pressure from the biotech company Monsanto on the University (the UC Berkeley tenure review panel had actually voted almost unanimously to approve his tenure). Professor Chapela has been told to have his office cleaned out by December 31. Sign a petition to demand a review of Dr. Chapela's tenure denial.
Well, happy holidays to Professor Chopela

Monsanto is really becoming an evil company. I know there has been a lot of work done to save native corn species in Mexico. It sounds like this is really putting that effort in danger of failing. MGOs are so scary. I don't get why Americans are so oblivious about this. Someday it will be too late.
