Are anti-science positions part of the Green political strategy?

The anti-science position of the greens on GMOs, fracking and nuclear power, is itself political tool used to whip up fear.

In a recent debate on Facebook I was drawn into  there was mention on the recent pig feeding trials which claimed to show toxicity from GMOs. I posted a link to Mark Lynas’ discussion of this study, which, apart from exposing the flaws of the study, showed that the lead author is an activist and also connected to Seralini. This was the response:

Ah Mark Lynas – a paragon of common sense – the green turncoat of the nuclear and gm debate – ok well i see where this is going – you’re confidence in the science is laudable and Lynas is working for the other side… goodbye

So this is not about “science” or “facts” or “evidence” or any such- but about taking sides. Lynas is discredited because he has jumped ship and works for the Enemy.
