Mark Lynas and the anti-science left

I’ve been reading about Mark Lynas a lot lately, mainly because of The Agenda with Steve Painkin. Michael Shermer appeared with Lynas and the perpetually smug Chris Mooney to discuss the anti-science left. I’m surprised that I haven’t come across Lynas’s work before, but I’m pleased to be catching up on his transition from an anti-GM activist to a science-based environmentalist. His lecture at the Oxford Farming Conference is well worth watching if you’re concerned about anti-science movements.
