Denialism: How Irrational Thinking Hinders Scientific Progress, Harms the Planet, and Threatens Our Lives — Michael Specter
Doesn’t really mention biotech & agriculture at all but I mention it here because it explains just how damaging and dangerous science denial can be.
This is probably crossed your screen on this topic,
No it hasn’t crossed my screen. I wouldn’t even waste my time with anything from GlobalResearch.ca. It a conspiracy theorists pseudoscientific dream. I can’t imagine anything there being even remotely worthwhile.
And after quickly skimming your linked article I can see my a priori understanding was entirely correct. I mean my gawd the article cites Mike Adams and Jeffrey Smith!
Out of courtesy to you as a long time buddy if you want you can pick one item off of that page you think is really worth considering and I fisk (pick it apart) for you but there is just way way too much bullshit to wade through there.
Pleas visit: http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Globalresearch.ca for more on why Globalresearch.ca ain’t worth the bacteria found in a septic tank.
Thanks man I appreciate it.
