Brown Must Embrace GM Crops To Head Off Food Crisis – Chief Scientist

November 28, 2007 | By More

Gordon Brown (The UK Prime Minister) was urged last night to bring back genetically modified crops and usher in a new era of nuclear power as part of a wide-ranging package to tackle the burden of population growth and climate change. Sir David King, the government’s chief science adviser, said GM technology was “crucial” for a green revolution capable of providing enough food for the global population, which is due to exceed 9 billion by 2050. He added that new nuclear power stations should be built to help meet carbon emission targets until alternative green energy sources become available.
