Anti-GMO? You Should Read The New York Times

While many on the political Left denounce the Right as anti-science, when it comes to genetically modified foods, the same can be reasonably said about the Left.

I missed this January article in the New York Times about the controversy over GMO plants in Hawaii, but it is well worth reading. It captures the politics and the anti-science attitudes of anti-GMO activists, as well as a slight brush with their apparently universal anti-capitalism. If one doesn't take their foundational political beliefs into consideration, as well as their scientific illiteracy, one would have a tough time evaluating their claims.
