Download and read the report from the ETC group website.  This report was produced in collaboration with the Heinrich Boell foundation.  Click on this image to see a larger version.

“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.”
