Open Letter to Bill Nye from a Plant Scientist - Collide-a-Scape
Not long ago, I wrote a post discussing the anti-science views of “Bill Nye the Science Guy.” In that post, I discussed how anti-science it was for.

Nye quit his job at Boeing on October 3, to focus on his burgeoning comedy career. His assistant told Nye, "Okay, you can talk to him for five minutes. Kids resonate to pure science rather than technology. Nye first got his big break on the show from John Keister who met him during an open mic night. He corrected Keister on his pronunciation of the word " gigawatt ", and the nickname was born when Keister responded, "Who do you think you are—Bill Nye the Science Guy?

Emmett Brown played by Christopher Lloyd. Wizard meets Pee-wee's Playhouse. Nye's program became part of a package of syndicated series that local stations could schedule to fulfill Children's Television Act requirements.
Nye Labs, the production offices and set where the show was shot, was located in a converted clothing warehouse near Seattle's Kingdome.
With its quirky humor and rapid-fire MTV-style pacing, the show won critical acclaim and was nominated for 23 Emmy Awardswinning nineteen. Subsequent research studies found the program to be effective in teaching students science: His Science Guy persona was also the on-air spokesman for the Noggin television network during The Eyes of Nye See also: The Eyes of Nye Following the success of Bill Nye the Science Guy, Nye began work on a comeback project, entitled The Eyes of Nyeaimed at an older audience and tackling more controversial science subject matter such as genetically modified foodglobal warmingand race.
RobertWager I hope it is at a venue near me. Front row seats would be nice. Unless your on Amazon. The you can buy them. And remember, non-GM papaya probably have a much greater amount of the same coat protein because the plants will be under greater disease pressure.
Evidence enough for some.

Read this study and weep. Stephanie Seneff is one of the biggest quacks out there right now. All her work belongs here: That has absolutely nothing to do with papaya.
You failed on all levels. Lars Olsen Stephanie Seneff? Do you have any basis at all for assuming such nonsense? Perhaps you just really, really, want him to be right? The man taught me how to build my first vinegar and baking soda Volcano! That may have been before your time tho. Either the parties involved are in a head long rush for profits, or they want to throw the baby out with the bath water, and ban outright the technology that may someday be our best chance for survival.
Two very different issues.
On another note, I read the Seneff paper cited by the OP. IMO, it set-up a good framework for directing further study but was unconvincing otherwise. It was not original research but a meta-review of what amounts to circumstantial evidence.
What I would like to see is a controlled study comparing disease prevalence between groups with a typical diet inclusive of GM foods with one substituting GM for non-GM.
In fact, such a study should have been done before each GMO was ever introduced into the food supply. Which could possibly allow us to study the effects of transgenic foods and compare the results in years of later humans to that of the babies genetic makeup. Bill Nye says so. Nye did not endorse her work.
Larkin Curtis Hannah There are at least two major problems with your argument. First, very little glyphosate is actually sprayed on plants to kill weeds. Hence, the amount making it into the food we eat if any, is minuscule. The other problem with your argument is if there were adverse effects on gut bacteria leading to a reduction of nutrient uptake, we would have seen it in all of the feeding studies that have been done.
Billions of farm animals have consumed Round-UP tolerant corn and soybeans for almost 20 years and no effect has been noted. Also, I am not aware of any documented study showing problems in humans who consume transgenic plants. If you can provide a documented study, published in a main stream peer-reviewed journal, refuting my statements, I would appreciate receiving them. If not billions, how can you claim no effects were noted?
SYH then provide a reputable peer reviewed work that claim glyphosate cause negative health effects in animals. Richids Coulter Which post did I say that it does? Thank you for illustrating the glaring difference between how you and I both approach the scientific method. Show evidence that it does first. Please, dear people of science, logic and reason… That claim is patently false. You can absolutely prove a negative. Do more reading on this logical fallacy: The main one being that rates of these disorders have dramatically increased since the introduction of GE into our food supply.
Unlike with organic carrots where no such correlation exists. Yes, correlation does not equal causation, but unless you conduct actual studies, you cannot rule it out.
You make it sound like there are no problems so I presume it has been studied then? Larkin Curtis Hannah My point is that millions of meals are consumed by humans three times a day in this country as well as others for the past 18 years. No problem has been found. Richids Coulter No problems have been studied, your point is unscientific. What percentage of meals in were comprised of transgenic ingredients? Larkin Curtis Hannah Show me a documented problem in humans.
You cannot do it.

Richids Coulter Show me there are no problems. Larkin Curtis Hannah You can not prove the negative. That is the nature of science. I am a professor of plant molecular and cellular biology at the University of Florida. What do you do for a living? Richids Coulter So your answer is we do not know whether problems exist because long-term controlled feeding studies in humans have never been done, is that about right? Larkin Curtis Hannah Yes, de facto they have been done. For 18 years by millions of people and farm animals.
If you want to look at published literature, check out the recent paper in the Journal of Animal Science by Dr. Larkin Curtis Hannah Oh, good old name calling, the last resort of someone who does not know the facts.
So, I take it you are from the organic cult. Larkin Curtis Hannah Do you realize that transgenic plants undergo millions of dollars worth of testing before they go on the market? They are tested for composition changes and the presence of new allergens, etc. So, if you have some new data or unique insight into this problem, please contact those agencies. This new gene technology clearly can help the growing world human population in the face of climate change.
If you think that increasing the market share of your potentially fecal laden produce is worth letting starving people starve, then continue with your name calling and bigotry. You have no credibility.
Richids Coulter Letting people starve? You have no credibility yourself as you just resort to the rebutted talking points of transgenic crops. Starting with maize, how has the commitment to GM crops benefitted the US agroecosystem?
Maize is a dominating crop for the US Midwest and a significant crop for W. By the mids, there was a significant change in yield in our comparison countries Figure 1.
These results suggest that yield benefits or limitations over time are due to breeding and not GM, as reported by others Gurian-Shermanbecause W. Europe has benefitted from the same, or marginally greater, yield increases without GM. Europe than in the US Midwest Licker et al.
The average yields of rapeseed for Canada have always been lower than W.
