Nineteen of the European Union’s 28 states rejected Dupont’s insecticidal corn, citing concern for pollinators. Five EU states approved the genetically modified maize, and four abstained.

But because state votes are weighted based on population size, no clear majority was reached either way, which leaves it up to the European Commission, who approved Dupont Pioneer’s TC1507 corn on February 11.

The Commission approved TC1507 for import in November 2005 and five months later approved it for human consumption. This week’s approval will allow for its cultivation.

    The EU is freezing the Swiss out of €94.7 billion worth of research funds because of the immigration vote last week.

  3. Stary Wylk says:

    Switzerland is somewhat special. Though many UN organizations are headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland is not a member. Until recently, at least, the Swiss armed forces were organized to defend Switzerland rather than police the world.
