If you are in or near Parkside, WI this Wednesday evening, I’ll be giving a FREE talk about genetically engineered crops. It is called Shades of Green: The Benefits and Risks of Genetically Engineered Crops. This talk is part of their monthly Science Night program.

Astute readers will remember that I gave this talk before at the Chicago Ethical Humanist Society, so this will be version 2.0 with more good stuff added and some weak parts removed or revised. For one thing, I have a bigger list of claimed GMO-caused diseases that a certain organization has been publishing, and I don’t know how I’m going to fit them all on one slide! I’ll cobble it together somehow.

Here are the talk details. (Flyer) (Map)

7:00 – 8:00 p.m. in Greenquist 103

Free parking after 6:30 p.m. – Everyone is invited – refreshments provided

Sponsored by College of Natural & Health Sciences

Before the talk, I will also be going on the local student radio station WIPZ to get some folks interested in the topic! I’ll be on the air from 3-4 pm Central Time, and people on the web can listen in live, and anyone can call in.

Plus if you can’t make it to the talk itself, It will be videotaped and will make its way  onto their YouTube channel and I think a local TV station.

Come with questions, come with cameras to get your picture taken with Frank N. Foode™, and if I do my job right you will leave with more questions on your mind than you started with!
