In the New York Times on July 27, 2013, Amy Harmon promotes genetic engineering to “save” the orange industry in the US. This is another push for the GMO “quick fix,” no matter how unproven and potentially disastrous.  Even the USDA has a more sensible take on curing citrus greening, which can be found in an article on their website titled, “Prescription for Curing Citrus Greening: Apply Heat and Wait.”  Too bad the New York Times forgot to mention that option…  But check out the comments to see how the public feels about genetically engineered orange juice.
