SciShow – How Even the Best Science Communicators Can Still Be Wrong

A lot of people have been asking me about my opinion on SciShow’s latest video about GMOs. Overall, I was very pleased with the video, but it is far from perfect as Hank makes a rather large mistake. In this video, I try to correct that mistake and take the opportunity to talk about science communicators in general, and how they can sometimes be wrong about the subject they are covering.

  1. One point that always seems to be missed when it comes to the discussion about patented seed and the possibility of lawsuits over inappropriate use is that patenting of novel strains long predates genetic engineering. Someone like Percy Schmeiser could just as easily have been sued for misappropriating a patented non-GM strain of, say, tomatoes or peaches or apples. Patents and there enforcement are simply not a GM issue per se, they are quite separate.
