It was amazing to see how many people hate Big Ag companies, therefore hate science, scientists, and facts. I never got death threats before, but the kind hearted anti-GMO interests are locked and loaded with me in the crosshairs! These goofballs don't realize that we are probably on the same side on every issue, like the same stuff, vote the same... but I know more about this topic and see through the activist falsehoods.
I'm getting me one of these bullet proof labcoats to protect me
from the lovely peaceniks that want to hug
the planet by killing a scientist.
The technology, the tool, is consistently attacked. It is not the tool or technology that should be their target, but maybe the way it is used. People opposed to Big Ag need to make that distinction.
The real issue might be a political and business one, not a scientific one. So when opponents blatantly lie about GMOs or provide misinformation, it discredits their political/business cause.
There's a fine line between flower power and fire power.
Give (your) piece a chance.
There also where many that simply gave me the F-U or some other pointy comment. Very sad. I was there to help and maybe could have helped them understand the issues and the science.
I never got a death threat before, let alone four, and because I support facts. I felt like the guys that report climate change or vaccine efficacy.
There is a rabid resistance in the anti-GMO world that needs to soften to the science and scientists if they ever want to make gains against Big Ag. Public scientists are their best allies. Don't shoot them.
