The lure of the dollar

It is just the lure of profit that motivates the pursuit of the blue rose? I think so.

When Australian Roses in Silvan agreed to run the trial for Florigene Ltd were they aware of the considerable community concern regarding the introduction of Genetically Manipulated organisms in the Shire of Yarra Ranges?

What did Australian Roses do to investigate this matter fully? Good corporate citizens take into account the views of their community. Good corporate citizens do not put at risk their community, their environment or their industry.

We do not have the knowledge or the
wisdom to tamper in such a
fundamental way with nature.

Why not? Because nature didn't intend it that way.
