Are Views on GMOs Changing?

Brooke Borel asks that very question in this post on Popular Science about a recent sold out Oxford-style debate on GMOs hosted by Intelligence Squared U.S. in New York. It is exciting to see what good debate can do and with the discussion and the movement in the audience it seems like it is possible to broker middle ground in the GM debate. The polarisation of the GM discussion is not good and it is a great time to think about framing the discussion in new, more constructive ways.
