Caroline Kinsman of The Non Gmo Project
GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering, or GE. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.

Director of “Growth Busters”, Dave Gardner
Forget what you thought you already knew about our small planet. Dave Gardner the Director of Growth Busters share how we must learn to live more sustainably or risk serious consequences. This is an interview that I went into thinking I had a grasp of the topic, but I was wrong. Gardner will challenge you with facts and ideas you won’t hear anywhere else.
Dave Gardner is the Director of GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth, a documentary about overpopulation and growth.
The Movie shows how from Las Vegas to Atlanta, Mexico City to Mumbai, the White House to the Vatican, GrowthBusters we are all focused on growth. He describes it as Wild Kingdom with a twist: the cameras are turned on humanity as our own survival skills are examined. GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth looks into the psychology of denial and crowd behavior. It explores our obsession with urban and economic growth, and our reluctance to address overpopulation issues head-on and holds up a mirror, encouraging us to examine the beliefs and behaviors we must leave behind – and the values we need to embrace – so our children can survive and thrive.
