What are genetically modified crops and animals and what are the potential environmental issues around their use? What international agreements and national laws regulate those products? This talk will discuss both the scientific and legal issues around GM crops and animals. It will provide the audience with a balanced analysis that will allow them to understand this topic and cut through the rhetoric espoused by both proponents and opponents.
