GMO labeling law fail, DNA databases, Media censorship, Geo-engineering as playing God?
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin gives an update on Connecticut’s GMO-labeling bill, and calls into question its effectiveness, given the stipulations that would prevent the law from actually taking effect. Abby then talks to BTS producer Ameera David about the implications the Supreme Court’s ruling on DNA testing will have on US privacy rights, and the news of tens of thousands of demonstrators in Japan calling for an end to the continued use of nuclear energy. Abby then goes over the six corporations that control nearly everything in the mainstream media, and discusses a few of the most famous cases of media censorship with BTS producer Manuel Rapalo. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Clive Hamilton, public ethics professor at Charles Sturt University and author of ‘Earthmasters’, about the controversial practice of geo-engineering and the arguments for and against the artificial altering of the natural world.
