Nanotechnology in agriculture and food - the ETC group is against it

Abstract:
The environmental group ETC today released a report strongly opposed to what they refer to as “the atomic modification of food". This is, of course, what we used to call “cooking". ETC are now focusing their campaign against nanotechnology onto the agriculture and food industries, perhaps in the hope of replaying the controversy about genetic modification of food. What the report reveals, though, is the slow evolution of ETC’s muddled thinking on the subject.

I rather suspect that this report has been rushed out to hit the Thanksgiving slow news patch in the USA. Maybe it would have been better if ETC had sat on it a little longer, long enough to sort out their misunderstandings and get their message straight.
