Some excerpts:

"It's all about control, control of seeds, control of farmers and control of our food supply."

"What kind of a legacy do we want to leave to our children? Do we want to leave a legacy of land and soil, air and water filled with poisons? I've been around chemicals since 1947. I've seen the damage it has done to our environment. And believe me, it’s pretty hard to see after you've sprayed in your fields and you run over dead deer, dead foxes, dead coyotes and dead birds, geese and so on, and you know what you've done to the environment. If you do this to the animals and you do this to the birds what are we doing to ourselves and to our children?"
