Science is a funny thing in the hands of today’s global greens.Greens decry their political adversaries as unsophisticated, anti-science simpletons for questioning the empirical evidence behind global warming.Yet when it comes to scientific evidence that hurts their cause, the greens are full out flat earthers. Take genetically modified foods, for example: the scientific community has generally concluded that they are perfectly safe for consumption and that the widespread use of GMOs will help feed the world’s poor. These conclusions are at least as “settled” as the evidence for climate change.The sober response of the “reality based” and “pro-science” greens? Yesterday, Australian Greenpeace activists snuck into a government run farm and destroyed a crop of genetically modified wheat.Meanwhile, there is considerable doubt about the health benefits of organic food and they might even be worse for the environment than the regular kind.That greens are irrational and willful isn’t surprising. Most people are, at least some of the time. What is surprising and even a bit disheartening is the blindness of the mainstream media to the obvious hypocrisy and bad faith of a movement which so consistently tries to have it both ways.For the sake of the planet, that needs to change.
