UN says gene revolution could help feed the poor with more productive crops I agree.
Drought and insect-resistant crops could boost yields and incomes.
Critics talk about the problems of distribution of food and lack of political will. Sure, but better crops will help. China does not have big distribution problems but has had famines. Better crops will reduce famine there. Better crops and more excess makes for a system that is more resistant to distribution and corruption problems. Not immune but more resistant.
