Communicating Science: GM Crops

Well done and thank you to Cork Skeptics who organise the monthly 'Skeptics in the Castle' event at Blackrock Castle Observatory in Cork.

I was delighted to be invited to speak to the meeting on the issue of GM crops and the public perception of science and really enjoyed preparing the talk, which of neccesity was quiet different from a talk I would be used to preparing for students.

From my point of view at least, the talk went well and generated some amount of lively discussion afterwards. Hopefully I got across some of the science behind the issue and provided some food for thought.

See a write up on the talk here.
