Cover illustration for report: Extreme Biotech meets Extreme Energy
An illustration and front cover of the new report from the ETC group examining the link between Synthetic Biology and the Fossil Fuels industry.
“The extreme genetic engineering industry of Synthetic biology (Syn Bio) is shrugging off earlier pretensions that it would usher in a clean, green ‘post-petroleum’ economy. Now they are partnering with big oil, coal, gas and mining interests. As the extreme biotech industry and the extreme extraction industry move towards deeper collaboration, the safety risks and climate treats emanating from both will become ever more entangled. This report details this emerging fossil-biotech alliance.”
