Anti-GMO activists have attacked innovation in agriculture since the start of the Green Revolution in the mid-20th century. Assuming everyone has access to a plentiful and nutritious food supply like they do, these activists campaign for bans on pesticides and genetic engineering tools that could help poor farmers in the developing world feed themselves and their families. English biochemist and science communicator Myles Power has had enough of these antics, he says.

In this video, Power takes on anti-GMO philosopher Vandana Shiva, whose “unusual” advocacy against biotechnology and other tools of modern agriculture could send the world back “to the dark ages” if she gained enough influence.
