How has organic farming progressed
since the Rio Earth Summit?
How important is buying locally-grown
food to the spread of the organic movement?
Will the proposed changes in the European
Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) help would-be organic farmers and
those who haven't converted yet? And what can we do to ensure that
the actual changes are even better than the proposed ones?
Do you see the trend towards organic
accelerating in the next decade?
Can businesses, government agencies,
local authorities, schools, and hospitals help promote organic food
by procurement schemes? Can you give me any examples of this?
Why should we avoid genetically modified
Tony Blair, for example, is saying
"we won't make a decision about GMOs until we do more tests about
the health effects", meaning field tests. But the ecogical threat
of genes escaping in the field is far greater than the health threat!
What is your view of the ecological risks of GMOs?
