Sense About Science has an excellent campaign, ‘Ask for Evidence’, which is designed to make companies, politicians, commentators and official bodies accountable for the claims they make. They are asking everyone who sees claims without evidence to contact the journalist/company/campaign group/MP/claim-maker of any description to ask for some.
So I’m planning to do some evidence asking in relation to GM amd will publish my correspondence here. Please let me know if you see any claims.
The case studies make interesting reading – requests have met a range of responses, from being ignored to removal of the claims. I’d encourage everyone to join in, whatever claims they stumble across. Rubbish is a current theme so I will be thinking of some to ask about food waste, another of my interests.
