With gene editing technologies such as CRISPR now so inexpensive and accessible, countless GM microbes may be introduced that deprive the world of the benefits of regenerative agriculture.
This is a wake-up call to governments, citizens, and those who envision a better world. If we want nature’s intelligence to work for us, we must protect nature now.
