Ecologists support "judicious use" of biotech

from the reasonable-caution dept.
The Ecological Society of America (ESA) has released a statement on genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which states the ESA "supports the judicious use of biotechnology." Concerning the release of GMOs, the statement says "Since long-term ecological impacts of GMOs may be extremely difficult to predict or study prior to commercialization, ESA strongly recommends a cautious approach to releasing GMOs into the environment. GMOs should be evaluated and used within the context of a scientifically based regulatory policy that encourages innovation without compromising sound environmental management. The process by which this occurs should be open to public scrutiny."
