    DuPont, a "technological leader"? This PR-generated IMAGE of this much shrunken old-line chemical conglomerate is largely without factual basis. When was the last high-profit, new blockbuster product or breakthrough technology coming out of the once fabled DuPont research and development?

    Last year's much touted DuPont "innovation" was a falsely marketed, misfiring lawn weed-killer now banned by the U. S. EPA. DuPont Imprelis has killed mature landscaping trees, evergreens and hardwoods by the tens of thousands across numerous states. Total losses confronting DuPont and its unnamed insurers has been estimated at $1 billion or more! The total tab will continue to grow as fresh damage is being discovered this spring.

    "Technology leader"? In 2012, the true technology leader in seeds is Monsanto, in ag chemicals, Syngenta, in chemicals, BASF and Dow Chemical...funfun..
