I'm so glad you asked this, and explained the issues here. It makes it very hard to ally with someone who claims to stand for science when that appears to be selective.

I've seen claims in the media that these apples will require more pesticides. Why are activists saying that--do they have any evidence of this?

What would you say was your most effective take-down of bad science info, and why was it effective?
I ask this because I read a lot about the different strategies for scicomm, and there's a lot of debate. Do we make nice and draw people in? Do we dope slap? Do we need to do both things at different times?
Personally I don't think there's one right way, but hearing about particularly effective cases might be informative.

I went to a March Against Monsanto with a sign that said:
Support Farmer Bowman's
right to grow
I expected it would start conversations. But nobody had anything to say about that.
