Mark Lynas used to think that companies producing GMOs (genetically modified organisms) were like the big tobacco companies: they were concerned only with profits and were happy to push dangerous products onto an unsuspecting public.
Now (according to this apology) he thinks that the anti-GMO movement is based on science denialism — akin to the denial of climate change.
So which is it? Are the biotech companies the deniers? Or are the environmentalists?
