Bill Nye: Cleaning the Environment with GMOs
Can plants and bacteria be modified to remove contamination from the environment? Bill Nye The Science Guy thinks so! He says that bacteria could possibly metabolize the oil in an oil spill, and make the other byproducts easier to collect. Comedian Chuck Nice realizes how much money can be made with these genetically modified organisms and wants in on the profits. Companies like Monsanto (or, as Bill says, ‘Monsatan’) spend over $2 Million per day on GMO research.
