Following up on an interview with MSNBC last month (featured on our blog and can be found here), Michael Specter was a guest on The Daily Show with John Stewart discussing his book Denialism and how American’s distrust of science may be harming the planet.
During the discussion, Specter says, “I believe genetically modified foods have an important place in humanity. A billion people are starving everyday and they need science to help them feed themselves and we are going to need 70% more food in the next fifty years. How are we going to get there?”

Please share your thoughts on Denialism and how attitudes towards science and technology, particularly biotechnology, may be limiting progress.
