LISTEN: The Dangers of GE Eucalyptus Plantations on WORT-FM

GJEP’s Anne Petermann was a guest this week on WORT-FM’s Buzz program, discussing the dangers of genetically modified eucalyptus trees.

From WORT-FM:

You’ve heard of genetically modified crops — corn, cotton, soybeans, potatoes — engineered to be herbicide and pest resistant, but have you heard of genetically modified Eucalyptus? A company called Arborgen wants to bring GMO Eucalyptus to the U. S., and Anne Petermann from the Global Justice Ecology Project talks about this potentially invasive and ecologically dangerous species.
