    E. coli is an intestinal bacterium. When it's detected at your local beach, it's a strong indication that there's poop (sewage) in the water.

    I'd pass on breathing poop bacteria.

    Isn’t it a little odd that our society seems to be freaked out by GMO foods, but maybe we are ok with scientist start Effing around with things designed to change our atmosphere?

    I guess it’s a good thing scientist never make mistakes..

    Seems like this is stated backwards, as far as I can tell. GMO-skeptics are a very small, very vocal group, like anti-vaxxers, and I don't know anybody who wants the atmosphere changed....thus the concern for climate change, and the search for mitigation technologies.
