BILL NYE THE GMO GUY
The science guy is good at garnering headlines with his outspoken beliefs.. He is in the face of creationists and conservatives, climate change deniers and all their ilk.. but so many who support him are scratching their collective brains in confusion at his buy in of GMO..
The evidence: Monsanto CTO Robb Fraley will join Nye, on an episode titled “More Food, Less Hype.”
“At a time when fake news is prevalent in our society, communication about science and restoring trust in the field has never been more important,” Fraley said. “I was excited and honored to be part of the show to help distinguish fact from fiction when it comes to GMOs. The fact is that GMOs are safe, effective and benefit the environment.”
Nye’s show is streaming now, only on Netflix.
There is a bit of interesting history here.. around March 2015 Bill Nye, who had expressed some doubt about GMO, became a fan.
and from that? He’s now all in.
