In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Kevin Folta, Chairman of the Horticultural Sciences Department in the Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology Program and Plant Innovation Program at the University of Florida at Gainesville, joins Manager Editor of Environment & Climate News, H. Sterling Burnett. Folta joins Burnett to discuss the effects of the slanderous attacks he and other biotech researchers and science communicators are facing due to their honest discussion of the benefits of genetically modified organisms.
The October 8 issue of the scientific journal Nature Biotechnology had a commentary on witch hunt being conducted by anti-biotech protestors. The editorial discusses smear campaigns targeting scientists who have spoken out against scaremongering concerning genetically modified (GM) crops. Kevin discusses the benefits of biotech and the impact the anti-science witch hunt is having on his work and the field of biotech innovation.
