Michael Pollan Discusses His Vision For Genetically Modified Crops (VIDEO)

In the following video from, Michael Pollan calls for an open source approach to genetic engineering.

He says the way to fix this problem is to open the intellectual propriety behind genetic engineering to crop scientists.
