Organic Consumers Association

Campaigning for health, justice, sustainability, peace, and democracy

New (Fake) Scientist

A popular science and technology magazine recently published an article and video aimed at convincing consumers that buying local and organic food is bad for the climate.

Given what we know—that industrial agriculture is the biggest contributor to global warming, and that organic and regenerative agriculture practices not only reduce emissions, but also draw down carbon from the atmosphere and sequester it in the soil—it’s hard to fathom how this article got the OK from the editors at New Scientist.

That is, until you find out that Syngenta and Merck are big advertisers in New Scientist magazine.
