There is a huge difference between selective breeding (artificial selection) and genetic engineering. This level of scientific illiteracy is embarrassing coming from such an esteemed scientist as Tyson.
I’m not even worried about the health impacts of GMOs (because there is little evidence to support that angle). The real issues of GMOs are:
The patents and lawsuits on biological life, forcing farmers into poverty, and in the case of India, suicide.
Awakening from Keto-acidosis: ”The scientists went to a hospital ward with diabetic children, comatose and dying from diabetic keto-acidosis. This is known as one of medicine’s most incredible moments. The scientists went from bed-to-bed and injected the children with the purified extract - insulin. As they injected the last comatose child, the first child injected began to awaken. One by one, all the children awoke from their diabetic comas. A room of death became a place of joy and hope.”
The lake appears to be a normal one during fall, winter, and a small portion of spring; but during the summer, most of the lake becomes evaporated. Dozens upon dozens of crater-like mineral deposits rest at the bottom of the lake and become visible during the warm weather. The mineral deposits span about 25 feet on average and contain many different concentrations of magnesium sulfate, and calcium/sodium phosphates, which gives them a distinct yellow, orange, green, or blue color.
