GMOs Have The Protential To Destroy Our Planet - Professor Nassim Taleb

Foto: Distinguished NYU Professor of Risk Engineering, NASSIM TALEB, recently raised eyebrows when he said genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have the potential to cause “an irreversible termination of life at some scale, which could be the planet.” The Precautionary Principle - which is what Taleb calls his warning - is all about managing risk, not about waiting for it to surface. The fact that GMOs are a systemic entity is undeniable. We don’t, as Taleb says, argue that a game of Russian roulette is safer with each empty barrel we find. It is, in fact, more dangerous.
