Well done, Mark Lynas, for changing his mind over genetically
Here's Mark Lynas on those who still oppose GM
food: "I look forward to their opening up an honest and
self-critical debate on this, rather than attacking others like
myself who challenge green orthodoxy where it likely harms society
and the environment."
Here's Mark Lynas on wind power: "Matt Ridley's
massive Spectator anti-wind rant seems completely fact-free. Any
references to back this up, @mattwridley?" [There
were scores of facts and references, starting with my assertion
that wind power provides 0.3% of the UK's total energy, a fact that
Lynas challenged, then called specious, then conceded].
Yes, indeed, Mark, I challenge green orthodoxy on wind power
precisely because I think it "likely harms society and the
environment", and am indeed attacked for it - by you.
You are welcome to the ranks of those who challenge green
orthodoxy; glad you eventually joined us. I look forward to you
re-examining some other green orthodoxies. I look forward to you
"opening up an honest and self-critical debate" on wind power.
