    very cool... I like reading the individual response to article like these.... it is amazing how poorly informed some folks are and how sounds bites are reconstructed into FACTS.

    Interesting. I don't quite know where to file that information. Its a catch 22 situation where we both want to eat and have a pristine world too. :)

    I think without a doubt Lee has captured a large piece of the problem. I myself would be fine with an occasional weed here or there and nothing to me looks any more unnatural than an english lawn or garden.

    Thing is this is exactly how they want it.
    A lot of it is also natural. one type of plant reducing the plant diversity also reduces the animal and insect diversity. Still at the same time much effort has been made to keep all the crawlies out of the crops.
