The West Wing: The Dover Test November 11, 2005

Posted by ayasawada in Science, TV.

Another week, another episode of the West Wing and another science story. This time Leo gets an offer to return to the Biotech company he left. His Indian nurse does not approve. Why? GM crops. GM can feed the hungry. Or does it force farmers to buy seed for crops they cannot eat, requiring chemicals they cannot afford? Does it really take away self-sufficiency? A sly one to slip in as a side-story, but good exposure away and in a quiet room, much more evenly-handled than the sensationalism often read in the press.
