    It doesn't really help to just chit-chat on the topic without providing solid support you would expect from a serious researcher. Disappointing!

    USDA involvment? No thanks. Get Big Ag AND government the hell out of the way. Fuel prices alone are going to force us to grow where we live. But not if big monied interests get in the way.

    Spell check messed me up. You will not be able to grow their "patents"

    First off aquaponics is way better than hydroponics. Regular gassification is less expensive then plasma gassification. His solutions seem more central planning then free market. Monsanto wants to patent all life and then let their patents replace the original lifeforms so they hold patents on life. You will be unable to grow their parents without paying them in the future. If you do you will be sued in a court of law for patent infringement. His solutions are not in your best interests.
