In the NY Times article two days ago, there was an article on environmentally friendly genetically engineered pigs. These “enviropigs” were created to be ecofriendly, but the program was halted because it couldn’t find a company to bring them to market.
Why should pigs bear the burden of saving our environment? Shouldn’t we take responsibility for our own behavior and keep our world from going to the dumps? We’ve already got genetically engineered produce to feed our overpopulated world. And we’ve got genetically engineered bacteria to eat up oil spills. Do we need to alter everything else to fix problems of our own creation?
We should just fix the problem at the source. Try the genetically altered homosapien. One that doesn’t destroy the environment.
