However, if we eliminate the magnetic field instead, we can derive the following equation for the current density:

There is a widespread optimism that â€˜lessons have been learnt from the GM Nation? Debateâ€™ â€“ indeed the government's response to the exercise was couched in just those terms (DEFRA, 2004).
