Esto aparece al final de la carta de Huber, pero ha sido ya publicado en varias revistas. Esta prohibición de investigar se opone a la ciencia, y como dicen los entomólogos que la redactaron los “inhibe de cumplir con su rol en protección del bien público”.
Letter from 26 University Entomologists to EPA (2008)
The following statement has been submitted by 26 leading corn insect scientists working at public research institutions located in 16 corn producing states. All of the scientists have been active participants of the Regional Research Project NCCC-46 “Development, Optimization, and Delivery of Management Strategies for Rootworms and Other Below-ground Insect Pests of Maize” and/or related projects with corn insect pests. The names of the scientists have been withheld because virtually all of us require cooperation from industry at some level to conduct our research.
“Technology/stewardship agreements required for the purchase of genetically modified seed explicitly prohibit research. These agreements inhibit public scientists from pursuing their mandated role on behalf of the public good unless the research is approved by industry. As a result of restricted access, no truly independent research can be legally conducted on many critical questions regarding the technology, its performance, its management implications, IRM, and its interactions with insect biology. Consequently, data flowing to an EPA Scientific Advisory Panel from the public sector is unduly limited.”
