I trained as a porphyrin chemist and I can’t wait to finally try your impossible burger, having no fear of a simple heme group.

But I also did nanotechnology research, and guess what Friends of the Earth has to say about that? http://emergingtech.foe.org.au/nanotechnology/

Of course, bitter experience has taught us “until the risks associated with the use of nanotechnology are properly assessed and its safety established” means something different to them, because they will never be satisfied a technology is safe enough when what they really want is to kill and bury it, with no scruples as to how they achieve this.

All you need to do is look critically at their tired crusade against nuclear energy, which global bodies like the IPCC and the IEA recognise must expand to provide more low-carbon, climate-friendly energy to the world. But what do leaders from FOE do?


They hire activists trained by anti-vax social science professors to twist and torture the arithmetic until it fits their angry narrative of rejection and protest, keeping their paying membership malinformed and perpetuating their fringe views.
