The issues discussed in The Test Tube Forest, an article on genetically modified trees, are going to become more and more important as genetic engineering becomes commonplace. Yet, I don't really see anyone doing anything about it...this type of thing will most likely just slide under the radar of most people (myself included). I'm not entirely sure why that is, but I think it has something to do with our short attention span (i.e. how does this directly affect me, right now).
