Social, environmental and economic issues surrounding GM foods, and the latest news

Global Risks 2016

Leave a comment

The World Economic Forum has produced a risk map to show how the seemingly disparate challenges we face are all inter-connected.

My research into GM constantly takes me off into fascinating tangents for exactly this reason – no problem or opportunity exists in isolation.

The accompanying Global Risks report puts involuntary migration as the top risk over the next 18 months, but water at the top of the list for the next 10 years.

Author: Rebecca Nesbit

I am author of a popular science book 'Is that Fish in your Tomato?' exploring the fact and fiction of GM crops. In my work and leisure so far, I have trained bees to detect explosives, used a radar to study butterflies for my PhD, written a novel, taken the train from London to China, organised Biology Week, sold science jewellery on Etsy, and traveled to four continents with Nobel Laureates. Best off all, I've made lots of friends whose support I very much appreciate. Thank you! Please visit my website:
