Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Tennessee? Wow! Then I again I have lived in Tennessee so this really doesn't surprise me, Hemp does however have tremendous options for use, I have even read that Ford at one time thought he would not only run his cars on hemp but also build them our of hemp. I'll have to look that one up..This sounds far fetched to me but Hemp is a sturdy material so how knows.

At the heart of the White House's new Arctic strategy is an elementary but devastating contradiction between what President Obama, in the document's preamble, describes as seeking "to make the most of the emerging economic opportunities in the region" due to the rapid loss of Arctic summer sea ice, and recognising "the need to protect and conserve this unique, valuable, and changing environment."... http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/earth-insight/2013/may/17/obama-arctic-energy-security-climate

Shell racked up big fines for faulty equipment, pollution and safety violations and sat out the last season. Outgoing Shell CEO Peter Voser called the Arctic one of his biggest disappointments.

America produced an average of 7.5 million barrels of crude oil per day in 2013, an increase of one million barrels per day and the biggest one-year jump in the nation’s history, FuelFix reported Thursday. The U.S. Energy Information Association (EIA) estimates production will grow by another one million barrels in 2014 and will peak at a whopping 9.5 million barrels per day in 2016.

And the production surge doesn’t stop at the water’s edge. According to FuelFix, “the Gulf of Mexico also is seeing a boost, with oil production expected to grow to 1.4 million barrels per day in 2014, up by 100,000 barrels.”.. http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/12/27/3105211/obama-administration-oil-production/#

Very powerful story. It is a science story not a biblical one.

Animal feeding studies are the basis for evaluating the safety of GMO crops. One-off studies of lab animals have occasionally shown some problems.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I think this guy should feed his family plenty of cow feed and let his grand kids get back to us on this. I would also like to see who funded  the "STUDIES" to the penny. What does this have to do with labeling and a right to choose? Don't they think they should brag about their special ingredients. If they are the same why are they patented?  Either the are naturally occurring and not artificially lab made or they are not and should be labeled like all chemically lab alter products design for human consumption. These products should be treated as a drug. They falsely have positive thinking that they will convince people they don't have a right to make their own choice to consume these products safe or not. Without labels what most people now do is avoid it all processed foods as much as possible, eat less and /or learn to raise more food on their own so they know what is happening to it. They know their war isn't over or we wouldn't be reading this article. Just the idea they still want their product to be like slipping everyone a Mickey rather than being honestly labeled stinks of deceit! The insult that people are too stupid to choose for themselves as informed citizens is disgusting. Talk about people that are out of touch with reality....
