The blizzard of January 1996 ran up and down the northern part of the Atlantic seaboard, hitting Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island and even reaching as far west as Central Pennsylvania.

The Alien Next Door

Monsanto is the largest seed company in the world and owns about 86% of GMO seeds sown globally. On the heels of the recent failure of Proposition 37 in California, I was glad to hear that on June 3, 2013, Connecticut became the first US state to pass mandatory labeling legislation for genetically engineered food ingredients. The compromise law, however, requires that four other states pass similar legislation in order to “trigger” Connecticut’s labeling requirement.
