Question 4: How do you feel about monocultures as they relate to crops?

Here is a clip from the documentary "The Future of Food", another recommendation if this is something you want to learn more about.

If this clip hasn't already answered the question (How I feel about monoculture's as they relate to crops), the answer is... TERRIFIED!

Whats the saying about history repeating itself? As the clip mentions, the potato famine in Ireland is a perfect example as to why monoculture crops are not sustainable nor are they logical.  And Monsanto is completely destroying our food supply, first by genetically modifying the seeds, then planting the monoculture crops, and then allowing these crops to build up resistance to the pesticides that their company has also created.... this whole scenario sounds like one major disaster and they scary part is how much of the food supply they control.

Soo again, just so we are clear.... I think monoculture's are horrifying.
