Seeds of Truth - Vandana Shiva Responds to The New Yorker
The New Yorker carried a very long article in its 25 August 2014 issue "Seeds of Doubt" by journalist Michael Specter, dedicated ostensibly to Vandana Shiva and the anti-GMO campaign, but is in truth a none-too-subtle ploy to discredit both in the service of the biotech industry. Specter had already published a book in 2009, Denialism: How Irrational Thinking Hinders Scientific Progress, Harms the Planet, and Threatens Our Lives, purporting to defend science from its critics in denial of scientific progress. This is her reply.
