Why we should not grow GM Crops

In Wales the road verges are infested with strong growing monoculture grasses. In the fifties returners from the war in North Africa,at the Plant Breeding Station Plas Goggerdan Aberystwyth collected grasses from the Atlas mountains grew them with a selective breeding programme. they planted these in open plots with a radio active source on a pole, then collected seeds and grew on the resulting mutations, perennial rye grasses and others.

Those shown to excrete chemicals which inhibited competition were selected and bred.

Later Feeding experiments at the Ministry at Trawsgoed showed that these species were toxic to cattle and reduced their life span.

Thatcher privatised both stations the grasses were then sold commercially.

A senior scientist before he commited suicide, said it was producing an upland rye grass desert in Wales.
This is becoming all Wales.

In the last three years we have seen cross breeds of these grasses escaping and colonising road verges,overpowering other species.
Unforseen consequences sixty years later, a very good reason not to use GM crops
Capital invested in the arms industries, then fertilisers then state plant breeding seed banks now in GM crops whose  seeds have to be sold for each planting, three international companies will then control the worlds food supplies.

Pembroke Dock slip spreading.

080613 the house with the edge of the concrete raft exposed is still occupied in spite of the fact that the failure is active and spreading
Private development on a private road so PCC have no responsibility

Pembrokeshire County Council Pembroke Dock

The decking is over a new 70ft drop.
The road is open with no warning signs
Planning permission was given to these executive new builds despite letters to PCC pointing out the unstable ground
The Chief Executive " the market will decide" "we have the lowest council charge in Wales by cutting all non essential services"
Buyers rely on the Local Authority to carry out these surveys before the build is signed off.
The mortgage companies assume that the relevant laws have been followed.
So much for the lowest council charge in Wales
Approximately seventy executive new builds are a risk of inevitable subsidence.
The cliffs are stabilised by heavy vegetation, removing the roots binding the soil together allows the spring under the house to wash the soil away. The dry weather with a very heavy squall vibrated the tree roots and the dry till became fluid, and flowed
The present failure shows signs of spreading.
