Hypocrisy

Thy name is Greenpeace:

Greenpeace agricultural campaigner Jan van Aken said there was no science behind the biotechnology industry\’s claims that genetically modified crops could ease the crisis.

"I am appalled that the GM industry is abusing the misery of millions of hungry people around the world, using it as propaganda to sell a product by claiming it would reduce hunger."

Not that Greenpeace would ever use the misery of millions of hungry people around the world to advance its own agenda: like the Ludddite refusal to consider GM crops for example? Or to insist that what we need is more peasant farming? Or organic? Or more self-sufficiency and less trade?

  1. yes, because an industry whose main selling point (disputed or not) is that it can increase agricultural yields, is not allowed to point out this might help poor hungry people?
