One of the issues I have been frustrated with in the past is GMO crops. Because environmentalism and the organic/natural/local food movements have been traditionally left wing, I tend to hang out with people who are diametrically opposed to genetically modified organisms. I puzzle at why so many pro-science people can be against scientific improvement in this one area.
No matter which side of this debate you fall on, please watch this video of formerly anti-GMO activist Mark Lynas about his discovery of science.
