Isobel Yeung explored the growth of Monsanto's pestacide resistant GMOs and its consequences. This is her debrief from Season 3 Episode 9 of VICE on HBO.
We're now deep into the third season of our show VICE on HBO. Among other stories, we've taken a look at climate change in Antarctica, American militias taking the law into their own hands, and the cocaine highway that leads from the streets of Venezuela to the sinuses of European teenagers.
We just aired a new episode where host Isobel Yeung traced the path of genetically modified super-crops from the headquarters of American agribusiness titan Monsanto to the soy fields of Paraguay, and visits the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, high in the Arctic, to see what's truly at stake when humans try to improve on nature. We sat down with Yeung to debrief the trip—check it out above.
