I know that some self-described "deep ecology" people, like Greenpeace -- taking their inspiration from Jeremy Rifkin --- are against genetic modificaion of plant and animal species. but I have never heard a reason why. They seem to think it's inherently immoral; their objection is not based on any religious doctrine; and it doesn't seem to follow from the available evidence.

Can anybody explain his to me? (Maybe I'm asking at the wrong site!?)

For some of those sorts of people, any technology is bad. Especially technology that allows a higher standard of living which leads into possible higher human populations. I bet the same sorts hate atomic power.
