Guest host Bill Nye the Science Guy says he’s changed his mind about GMOs. Find out why when he and co-host Chuck Nice answer fan submitted questions about the controversial subject of Genetically Modified Organisms.
Really interesting stuff here, as I for one, like many other people, just hear all of the anti-GMO stuff and automatically assume that a lot of it is factual and true and right. But is it?
One of the more telling parts of the pod was when Bill spoke of the FOOD, Inc. documentary and the farmer who claimed that his seed had been overrun by Monsanto seeds, but he has actually been found out to have planted the seed himself. I am efforting this story on the internets but I have not found it yet. I may have to watch FOOD, Inc. over again to get the guys name and find out more.
Just in case Part 1 wasn’t controversial enough, Bill Nye and Chuck Nice are back to answer new fan questions about Genetically Modified Organisms, unintended consequences, pollinator problems and more,
After listening to this and spending a good amount of time in the last few years, I have to admit, I am more confused than ever.
I think one of the points that Chuck “Nice” continues to make is that it may not necessarily be a beef with GMO’s really, but more a beef with corporations and regulations and capitalism and greed and all of things that come with that and not really the proven benefits or feared harms of GMO’s but what we think it would mean to the general human existence if we just let corporations have their way.
It’s a really interesting topic and definitely something that we all will be wondering about for quite some time.
Personally, I’m just in the camp of I want to know what is going in my body and where it is coming from. Everything else, you guys can fight over and do whatever you want with. Just let me know what is in what is going in the temple.
