Monsanto Wins The Rubber Dodo Award
Monsanto wins! Monsanto wins! Well… sort of. I mean, Monsanto wins the Rubber Dodo Award.
Earlier this month, Monsanto was the recipient of the Center for Biological Diversity’s 2015 Rubber Dodo Award, one of the biggest awards you DO NOT EVER want to win. What’s the Rubber Dodo Award for? It’s
…given annually to those who have done the most to destroy wild places, species and biological diversity.
The center gave Monsanto the award for “continuing to peddle Roundup and its deadly ingredient glyphosate”, once again bringing glyphosate back into the current GMO conversation, front and center.
The Center’s executive director, Kierán Suckling, offered up some harsh words for Monsanto brass —
“Those sitting in Monsanto’s boardrooms and corporate offices won’t pay the price for this dangerous pesticide. It’s going to be people on the ground where it’s sprayed,” Suckling said. “This kind of callous pursuit of profits is at the core of what’s driving the loss of wildlife and diversity on a massive scale around the globe.”
