retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Ecologist has a piece suggesting that Cornell University's Alliance for Science, which traditionally has promoted genetic engineering, "has opened an inclusive scientific dialogue on the safety of GMO crops," arguing that it has precipitated "a major, and most welcome, shift in the debate."

The story - written by someone who is actively and assiduously anti-GMO - takes the position that by breaking with precedent, the Alliance for Science will enable a "productive, non-confrontational discussion" of the issues.

It is an interesting column ... and worth reading here.

Thanks to MNB reader Tom Kroupa for turning me on to this ... which I might've missed, since I'm not a regular reader of The Ecologist... I'm always intrigued when people actually decide to act like adults...
