Thanks BjornBee, Your exactly right, I believe its why so little is "really" being done. Those in power have faith (brainwashed with money) that BIG AG will still be able to feed the world, rrriiight. There has been a movement for quite some time to gain ever more control over all aspects of food production and more importantly for those doing the "real" starving, food distribution, which they've already won. People will do anything when they're starving and thirsty. And some are salivating at the thought (same folks that can't wait to grow oranges at the North Pole, no doubt).
Seeds, specifically (ooops) HYBRED seeds are totally under control of BIG AG, they own most of the pattens. They do what they will to promote their seed while doing their best to limit plantings of "heirloom" varieties, particularly in poor countries, not that the US is left off the (meat?) hook.
As soon as they've perfected the methods of producing seeds that require no pollination, they will have screwed us all and all seeds/food will come from them and who needs bees then?. I'm paraphrasing, but that is a stated mission.
Spread the word, Save bees by saving seeds (and refusing to buy theirs).
