Scotland saved from child eating triffids by the Government
GENETICALLY modified seed-lings have been discovered growing among oilseed rape in three fields in Scotland...
Mike Russell, the environment minister, said: "Had these plants been allowed to mature, the risk to the environment could have been very serious. However, prompt action by the Scottish Government is ensuring that the situation is remedied. This further emphasises the continuing need for rigorous controls on GM material and for Scotland to remain a GM crop-free zone.
And what exactly is it "a very serious" risk of happening to the environment if they hadn't realised they had planted the wrong seed.
It has to be a risk of "something", not just a "risk", what is that something?
