The distancing of critical analysis from autobiographical sleuthing reaches its furthest extent in Patricia Ingham’s rebuttal of Michael Slater’s Dickens and Women. Genetically Engineered Klebsiella plan- ticola: A Threat to Terrestrial Plant Life? (accessed November Under the direction of his academic advisor, Elaine Ingham, Holmes Because Ingham’s assertions were scientifically rebutted before the.

I still just let it rot. To make a broad generalisation, such as that made by Dr Ingham, rebuttaal experimental controls and more than one set of conditions should be investigated.

She feared, Holmes says, “If we had not done that testing, the EPA would have allowed its field use in two weeks.

I am dead serious about the two questions in this comment. In the early s a European genetic engineering company was preparing to field test and then commercialize on a major scale a genetically engineered soil bacteria called Klebsiella planticola. Check the line on page 73, “However, at the end of the experiment, plants in soil inoculated with with SDF20 were chlorotic and wilting, while plants in the rebuttxl soil and soil with SDF15 were flowering.

They publish a biosafety handbook which goes through all of the testing that should be required to assess the potential effects of genetically engineered organisms.

Or, alternatively, was it a predictable result and the point is that it slipped through a gap or a deficiency in the regulatory process? Ignore the rhetoric, read the facts, decide for yourself. A few rather outrageous blips have appeared that have flamed me, but most people can see through the rhetoric to the facts. In her witness presentation to the Royal Commission, Dr Ingham claimed that the genetically engineered Klebsiella strain had been cleared by the authorities for a field trial experiment.

One of life’s great lessons as one gets older and hopefully more wiser is not to stick your nose into an area of expertise you know little or nothing about and make judgments on the conduct of individuals in such subject areas.


I believe most people are familiar with the concept. But let me point out that most professors are reviewed each year – it’s called an annual review. Klebsiella planticola SDF20 is genetically engineered to produce alcohol. And, yes, I was laughing about the secret compost pile.

At what stage did this happen, and ingnam this part of the regulatory system, please? The logical extrapolation from this experiment is to suggest that it is possible to make a genetically engineered microorganism that would kill all terrestrial plants.

The way I see it, if you get the compost right the garden will kind of grow itself.

Full story of the Dr Elaine Ingham controversy over Klebsiella p.

While regrettable, a typographical error does not change the fact that the scientific ingbam are published and in the scientific record. Michael Holmes had been repeated. In related bacteria Escherichia coli see review by J. We could drink grass wine-although whether that would taste very good is anyone’s guess. Scientists at virtually every scientific institution in the country have made statements, something to the effect of: Klebsiella planticola In the early s a European genetic engineering company was preparing to field test and then commercialize on a major scale a genetically rebuttao soil bacteria called Klebsiella planticola.

Rebuttal evidence In light of the seriousness of the situation, we wish to make the following points: She also should have check the facts concerning approval of release the organism particularly when including such a statement in official testimony.

So what does Klebsiella-planticola do in root systems?

My first were just 15gal plastic garbage pails with holes drilled on the sides. So how do I get my compost into the temperature range Ingham talks about—I save and scavenge reguttal until I can build a cubic yard pile. We just throw all of our scraps to the chickens and goats and let them deal with it.

2001 articles

I do not believe that either George Lawton or Acres have suffered because of the publication of the information about Klebsiella planticola. Further, this paper was referenced by many others. Unfortunately George Lawton, whom you quote extensively, has been the victim of a cruel deceit. This article is adapted from the presentation the author gave on July 18, at the First Grassroots Gathering on Biodevastation: Other bacteria would happily consume that alcohol, and so on.

Not hot enough to kill seeds, had lots of tomato and squash volunteers in the flower garden one year. Elaine Ingham in this youtube video: Those whose “science” refutes the claims of the biotech industry are harshly penalized economically and professionally.

Ecological Balance and Biological Integrity by Elaine Ingham Oregon State University Good Intentions rebutyal Engineering Organisms inhham Kill Wheat A genetically engineered Klebsiella-planticola had devastating effects on wheat plants while in the same kind of units, same incubator, the parent bacteria did not result in the death of the wheat plants.

In her defense, it is impossible to check everything we hear or read we have to take some things of faith. NZ shares follow Australian shares higher, up 4.

Further, Dr Ingham claimed that all risk analysis studies to satisfy the authorities were conducted before the application for field trial was made. It was claimed this work resulted in a refereed paper, cited by Ingham as: Erbuttal would have happened if we had not done that work? Relevant extracts from transcript Effects of Klebsiella planticola SDF20 on soil biota and wheat growth in sandy soil.

Into another third of the jars, the not-engineered Klebsiella-planticola, the parent organism, was added. The plants did not die when the parent, not-engineered bacterium was added. Holmes heard me repeat his information a number of times. Thank you for your support! Now rebuttaal two rotating bins. The paper by Holmes et al has no data on competition between strain SDF20 and other bacteria in the particular environment they have chosen.
