On August 25, 2014, The New Yorker released "Seeds of Doubt" by Michael Specter. On August 26, 2014, Dr. Shiva offered this point-by-point response. Dr. Shiva's powerful rebuttal to a misrepresentation of her work is worth a careful read.
We see how a veteran journalist can fail to meet standards of professional journalism; and we learn lessons about how all of us addressing the crises of industrial agriculture and GMOs can respond, working ever more effectively to build an evidence-based movement.
Frances and Anna first got to know Dr. Shiva in their research to write Hope’s Edge. In their book you can read the story of their journey to India to study the work of Navdanya, Dr. Shiva’s organization.
