We have no bananas

Terrific New Yorker article on Tropical Race 4 which is rapidly wiping out banana crops around the world. It looks hopeful that James Dale has actually come up with a GM solution. Very interesting insights into the pros and cons of GM, and some inadvertent humour: "It's not that you're going to keel over and die as soon as you eat genetically modified papaya." Glad we cleared that up...
