|The Conversion of Saul? Environmental Activist Mark Lynas in an Interview with "environment360"|
Keith Kloor writes on Yale environment360:
"Activist Mark Lynas has alienated his green colleagues by renouncing long-held views and becoming an advocate for nuclear power and genetically modified crops. In an interview with Yale Environment 360, he explains why he rethought his positions and turned to technology for solutions."
In the interview, Mark Lynas states:
"We cannot afford to foreclose powerful technological options like nuclear, synthetic biology, and genetic engineering because of Luddite prejudice and ideological inertia."
