Environmental changes have lead to social debate and advances in genetically modified crops in recent years with higher adoption of these new technologies to feed the planet as we face changing climate conditions and food shortages.
Interestingly, people who tend to be pro-industrial development say the science on genetic modification is sound, but the science on climate change is a bit suspect – while those who are pro-environment tend to say the science on climate change is sound, but the science on genetic modification is a bit suspect.
Some environmental activists argue the human race is rapidly approaching the tipping point as it barrels along in denial of climate change. The iTransform initiative explores the user’s appetite for undergoing genetic modification in an artist imagined future where climate change puts human existence at risk and genetic modification is a viable option for survival. The Climax is the decision – change your behaviour or adapt through genetic modification.
