Yes, real for sure! I should have made clear I have zero financial stakes. I work for myself, so far for peanuts. I just got my first paycheque from Medium. $50 for my first 5 articles behind paywall. I figure I’m making $1 an hour. My brother teased me that I’ll be in much better shape when the Monsanto bucks start rolling in (not going to happen!). I truly just want to help people make informed decisions, including myself! Certainly, feeding the planet is not an easy problem and I don’t claim to be the answer. I do think that we should be using a full toolkit — including GMOs and chemicals made in labs. Any tool can be harmful or helpful depending on how it’s used.
Thanks for sharing your perspective from the trenches. Are you a farmer?
