Palaces For The People

CS Prakash caught in lies many times in many places. Has credentials puffed up by phoney awards from his paymaster serial murderer corporations-owned front-propaganda mills. CS Prakash is a liar. CS Prakash is a fraud. CS Prakash is a hack phoney. The reason that CS Prakash has never sued for libel against all these charges of his frauds is because DISCOVERY allows subpoena of records of his employers which would blow the doors off their secrecy network, so Prakash has to stand and take the spittal.


=================================
http://www.mindfully.org/GE/2003/Sound-Science-Prakash20jun03.htm

mindfully.org note:
The sound science of CS Prakash is quite different than what most of us take for granted. In a word, it is a sham—no more than expensive smoke and mirrors. It involves vicious underhanded tactics on attack any person, scientist, or organization that speaks out against genetic engineering. It includes multimillion-dollar disinformation campaigns, implicit and explicit threats, lawsuits, and any other means to discourage negative public comments from being known and/or believed. Personal attacks are more common than scientific attacks. This is because he, quite simply, lacks the one thing that he claims others do not possess, that being......sound science.

These attacks are financed and led by the likes of Monsanto, the company that we all know as the maker of Agent Orange, and other fine chemicals that have left the environment and people ruined. Prakash sound science is extremely myopic in scope—not at all inclusive of known facts. He is otherwise known as an industry flack or hack.

His own financers are the special interests who have arranged this Ministerial Conference in Sacramento. It is a "Dog and Pony Show" for biotech and irradiation corporations. The safety of biotech crops could not have been proven because they have been around for only a few years. Since there is no precedent to them, how can anyone know of their safety without long-term testing, which has not been done.

The benefits are so slim and/or negative that Monsanto has been bared from doing any business in one major state of India. There are hunger strikes by farmers against these crops. The farmers also burn GMO fields in protest and pull the crops. If a farmers field becomes contaminated by GMO pollen or seeds that farmer may be sued by the owner of the patent. And many farmers have been sued by Monsanto. They make vicious attacks on farmers in an attempt to ruin them financially and to tear apart the social structure of our society.

Prakash touts the endorsement of such people as Norman Borlaug. His ideas brought us the Green Revolution, which the "Gene Revolution" is supposed to remedy by making pesticides obsolete and increasing harvests. Neither of these promises has been delivered.

Genetically modified crops have nothing to do with feeding starving people. They are meant to control the food supply and make unforeseen profits for the people at the top of these corporations.

--- Subject: Re: rice genome To: Dr C.S. Prakash, Tuskegee University

Dear Dr Prakash,

A few months back the US-based biotechnologist, C.S. Prakash, responded to an article on the rice genome by New Delhi based food and trade policy analyst, Devinder Sharma. As Prakash's points are often raised by GM proponents, Devinder Sharma's detailed point by point replies are of particular interest.

Below Devinder's reply is his article, "Rice genome mapping NO RESPITE FOR THE HUNGRY"

I have tried to answer your concerns, point by point. What you said in your letter, is in bold letters, followed by my reply.

Devinder Sharma

[C.S.P.] You make some valid points about the problems facing rice farmers but you cite many current and past problems which have nothing to do with biotechnology.

[D.S.] Biotechnology CANNOT operate in isolation. It too operates under the prevailing political economy. To say that the rice genome mapping will help result in increased production in the years to come is simply an emotional and PR exercise, which cuts very well with the politicians and policy makers. But in reality, what is the use of these "biotechnological breakthroughs" when the farmers (in India, for instance) are being asked not to produce more?
=================================
http://www.mindfully.org/GE/2003/Prakash-To-Go13may03.htm

Response

I have read the article Time for the GM Moratorium to Go, by G. Conko and C.S. Prakash published in the Wall Street Journal (Europe), May 13, 2003. [At left]

The article quotes, as many others do, that in India, poor farmers have benefited greatly from GM crops, in this case, Bt cotton. The article says, "But many of the same GM crops available in North America are already helping poor farmers in South Africa, India, China, and the Philippines combat often-voracious insects while reducing the amount of insecticides or eliminating them altogether".

This is simply not true of India, and the authors know it. They are both familiar with the public debate on the Indian Bt cotton experience. Gregory Conko was present at a seminar I gave in IFPRI, Washington recently, where I presented results of a field study conducted by Gene Campaign, in two Indian states where Bt cotton was grown. This study shows that Bt cotton has performed very poorly in these states, pesticide use is only minimally reduced and these savings are not enough to offset the huge difference four to five times) in the price of seed. The Gene Campaign study shows that about 60 % of the farmers could not recover their investments and made losses.

There are other reports which point in the same direction. Studies done by the FAO, Greenpeace and the Government of Andhra Pradesh (AP), show similarly poor performance. The AP state government has admitted that Bt cotton has not done well and they are seeking compensation from Monsanto for farmers who have suffered losses, as is Gene Campaign.

The Genetic Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC), India's apex regulatory body has asked for a state wise review of why the crop has performed poorly. The Standing Committee on Agriculture, in the Indian Parliament has pronounced after seeing the data, that it "sees no merit in Bt cotton" because the performance did not match the exaggerated claims. The GEAC has since witheld approval for commercialising Bt cotton in the North Indian states after the poor experience in South India.

Despite all this information floating on list serves and the media, Conko and Prakash, both well known biotechnology lobbyists, deliberately make a claim that is unsubstantiated and false. This kind of misinformation can be dangerous because it can influence policy makers to take decisions that could ultimately end up hurting the farmers. The Biotech lobby must draw the line somewhere and exercise some restraint in its promotional efforts.

2. New NCPPR website targets green activists
The National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR) has launched a new web site to "tell the truth" about environmental and consumer activists who NCPPR consider to be a "public nuisance." (http://www.envirotruth.org)

The topics specifically addressed are biotech foods, chlorine, climate change, eco-terrorism and PVC/pthalates. Organizations such as Greenpeace, Health Care Without Harm, Sierra Club and others are taken to task for waging particular campaigns or using particular tactics. In every example, the only "truth" NCPPR comes up with is provided by the same small group of industry-funded scientists/public policy "experts" we've been hearing from for the past decade or more: Michael Fumento, American Council on Science and Health, Science and Environmental Policy Project, etc.

Prakash Admits Agbioworld Bastard Child of "well-funded front for corporations"

Norfolk Genetic Engineering Network (NGIN)
March 6, 2002

In 'Part of the Network: How Prof CS Prakash and his AgBioWorld campaign are part of a network of pro-corporate extremists' (first published as an article in SPLICE, Vol. 7, Issue 6), NGIN first exposed how, since it's very inception, C. S. Prakash's AgBioWorld campaign had been tied into the Competitive Enterprise Institute - a rightwing thinktank funded by the likes of Philip Morris and Dow Chemicals and notorious for its extreme pro-corporate agenda.

http://www.prwatch.org/improp/cei.html>http://www.prwatch.org/improp/cei.html

In the article we exposed how the Prakash petition, AgBioWorld's launch pad, which had always been presented as a Third World scientist's rallying point for fellow academics, actually formed part of the Competitive Enterprise Institute's wider campaign against "death by regulation" - the same CEI campaign that has encouraged smoking as a political rejection of government education programmes because, according to the CEI, "there are things more valuable than health"!

doc33a Do GMOs pay?

It's a question about dollar and cents. C. S. Prakash argues that, at the end, GMOs really pay off for the farmer.

C. S. Prakash
Progressive Farmer

One study leads to the conclusion that they might not. But that doesn‘t mean farmers won’t - or shouldn‘t - continue to use them. Genetically modified crops hit the dirt five years ago. The question about them today is not whether they work - Bts and Roundup Ready generally live up to production expectations. No, the question is about dollars and cents: There is evidence that the economic benefit of these new crops is slim, although it‘s not nonexistent.
