The statement was drawn up by the European Network of Scientists for Social and
Environmental Responsibility. It was released on October 21, 2013.
Please read this, Mr Paterson.
Since then, 297 scientists and experts have signed it.
Thus exploding the myth that “the science is settled.”
Exploding the claim that a consensus about GMOs has been reached.
You can read the statement and the signatories at ensser.org.
Here are two excerpts from the statement:
“As scientists, physicians, academics, and experts from disciplines relevant to
the scientific, legal, social and safety assessment aspects of
organisms (GMOs), we strongly reject claims by GM seed developers and
commentators, and journalists that there is a ‘scientific consensus’
on GMO safety
and that the debate on this topic is ‘over’.”
“We feel compelled to issue this statement because the claimed consensus on GMO
safety does not exist. The claim that it does exist is misleading and
the currently available scientific evidence and the broad diversity of
scientists on this issue. Moreover, the claim encourages a climate of
that could lead to a lack of regulatory and scientific rigour and
potentially endangering the health of humans, animals, and the environment.”
The number of scientists on either side of a question does not, alone,
imply a final
answer. But it does indicate whether the question is closed or still open. It
does indicate that those who claim the question is closed are wrong.
Monsanto PR and government PR and media PR are so many tongues wagging
in the wind.
In previous articles, I’ve highlighted dangers and lies re GMOs. Here
reporting that a consensus about GMO safety is a delusion.
In other words, anybody can say “everybody knows…” And if those
people have access
to, or control, major media, they can make a persuasive case.
But the persuasion is nothing more than one voice drowning out other voices.
Other voices who, for example, make this declaration:
(Signatory, Dr. Margarida Silva, biologist and professor at the
University)—“…research has been mostly financed by the very
companies that depend
on positive outcomes for their business, and we now know that where money flows,
influence grows. The few independent academics left must work double
shift to address
the vast array of unanswered questions and red flags that keep piling up.”
Or this voice: Signatory, Dr. Raul Montenegro, biologist, University of Cordoba,
Argentina—“As things stand, the governments of these countries
deny that there is a [GMO] problem even in the face of numerous reports from the
people who are affected and the doctors who must treat them.”
So far, there are 297 such voices.
Will CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, FOX report this story in full and overturn
the false consensus?
Will they make room for the 297 voices?
Of course not. Their job is to invent consensus by consulting
Meaning: liars who also want to invent false consensus.
