"Renowned chef John Bishop leads viewers on an eye-opening and engaging journey into the billion-dollar battle to control global food production. Starting with a gourmet meal in his five-star restaurant, Bishop travels the world -- from farmer's fields to biotech laboratories to supermarket aisles -- on a personal quest to find out what our food choices are. With a hearty appetite for food and information, chef Bishop explores the politics and ethics of food. He discovers that 70% of processed foods on supermarket shelves in North America contain genetically modified ingredients. The handful of biotech companies who control genetically modified seeds claim this is the only way to feed the world's growing population. But are these foods safe? Are there other, less risky ways to feed ourselves? Our chef finds answers to these compelling questions and more. From North America to Great Britain to India and back, John Bishop shares fascinating conversations and mouth-watering feasts with farmers, such as Michael Ableman, scientists and activists, such as Vandana Shiva. We see the actual transfer of DNA from bacteria into canola plants, and meet Canadian farmer Percy Schmeiser who is battling the giant Monsanto Corporation. We learn startling information about the milk we drink in North America and meet Indian farmers and activists fighting to keep traditional farming practices alive." -- Bullfrog Films website

Next BANG! : wie das riskante Spiel mit Mega-Technologien unsere Existenz bedroht by P. R Mooney( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine unheilvolle Allianz aus Wissenschaft, Grosskonzernen und Regierungen bereitet grossflächige Eingriffe in das System Erde vor - weitgehend unbemerkt von der Öffentlichkeit und ohne die dringend gebotene Risikofolgenabschätzung. BANG - Bits, Atome, Neuronen und Gene sind die Ingredienzien dieser riskanten neuen Megatechnologien. Geo-Engineering, Nanotechnologie, Gentechnik, synthetische Biologie und "konvergierende Technologien" heissen die Zauberbesen, mit denen die Probleme der Menschheit angeblich ausgekehrt werden sollen. Das zugehörige Marketing verspricht uns Rettung vor der Klimakrise, die Abschaffung des Hungers auf der Welt und ungeahnte Erfolge in der Bekämpfung von Krankheiten.Pat Mooney entlarvt die Absurdität solcher Behauptungen und führt uns plastisch die unkalkulierbaren Risiken vor Augen, die mit derartigen technologischen "Heilsversprechen" verbunden sind.Zugleich ist sein Buch ein leidenschaftliches Plädoyer für mehr Engagement und einen stärkeren Einfluss der Zivilgesellschaft bei den dringendsten Fragen unserer Zeit. Seine Aussage ist deutlich: Es liegt nicht nur in unserem ureigenen Interesse, sondern es ist auch unser Recht, zu bestimmten technologischen Entwicklungen "Nein!" oder "Langsamer!" zu sagen.In verschiedenen fiktiven Geschichten führt uns Mooney dabei auf alternativen "Kursen" bis ins Jahr 2035 - und fordert uns auf, uns zu entscheiden, in welcher Welt wir in dreissig Jahren leben wollen
