DescriptionBiotechnology is coming to the forests. The report says that scientists are planting genetically engineered trees in dozens of research projects across the country, ignoring the pleas of environmentalists who fear dangerous, unintended consequences. Biotechnology, may provide just what's needed to help reverse global deforestation and industrial pollution while satisfying increased demand for wood and paper products. The Sierra Club wants a moratorium on the planting of genetic engineered trees outdoors until the science is better understood. Information to these issues are available at this site.
