Mona Miller wrote: Karen did not say that margins along side GM fields are important. This is your Monsanto agenda.

Paul Cherubini wrote:
You havn't identified any misinformation. This thread is about "Milkweed Loss Hurts Monarchs" and I have been pointing out, using videos, that the milkweed that grows along the margins of the GMO crops is especially important monarch breeding habitat nowadays.
So far you and blazing star havn't posted any information refuting my claim.
blazing star wrote:I used to research, and post, an abundance of information disputing your post contents and videos. I also pointed out that your silly videos are not "evidence" of anything as you cannot look at a snapshot in time to extrapolate any long term, meaningful information.
Mona Miller wrote:The GMO roundup ready crops are responsible for destroying hundreds, of thousands of areas of habitat/milkweed and you want to know about the margins of these fields.
Mona Miller wrote:I have very bad feelings about areas near GMO fields
Mona Miller wrote:I don't know what you are talking about. Who is caring for these margins or who is destroying these margins? They are being subjected to chemicals.
Mona Miller wrote:I'd have to say that that milkweed is already lost to the chemicals, which get sprayed on it. Chalk that one up to another lose due to Monsanto and their chemicals and GM crops.
