What part-time rational thinking gets us. This TED talk struck me as brave and timely. And while many producers may cheer much of what he says about GMO's, he is also talking about carbon emissions, energy conservation, economics, etc. The same commitment to reason and scientific consensus still applies.
For too long we have indulged in the cafeteria approach to logic - we'll support it if it yield the most profit. Otherwise we reserve the right to choose psuedo-science and denialism, just as he mentions.
It is indeed capable of taking us to a very bad place.
