Robert McDonald at the 2009 BIO Convention

Ah, it is so nice to have a video program that does what I want it to do! This is an interview with Robert McDonald at The Nature Conservancy about genetic engineering, agriculture, and how the panel discussion went that he participated in at the 2009 BIO Convention in Atlanta last May. What I find refreshing about The Nature Conservancy’s position on genetic engineering – agnostic – is that it allows them to criticize an aspect of GE that they believe will harm the environment, while also being able to support a trait that they believe will benefit the environment. So I asked him what he thought about Nitrogen Use Efficiency – have a watch for his answer!
