Strongest opponents of GM foods know the least but think they know the most • The Guardian
Ian Sample:
<p>The most extreme opponents of genetically modified foods know the least about science but believe they know the most, researchers have found.

The findings from public surveys in the US, France and Germany suggest that rather than being a barrier to the possession of strongly held views, ignorance of the matter at hand might better be described as a fuel.

“This is part and parcel of the psychology of extremism,” said Philip Fernbach, a researcher at the University of Colorado and co-author of the 2017 book The Knowledge Illusion. “To maintain these strong counter-scientific consensus views, you kind of have to have a lack of knowledge.”

Fernbach and others analysed surveys completed by nationally representative samples of the US, French and German public. Those who took part were asked about their attitudes to GM foods and given instructions on how to judge their understanding of the topic. Next, they completed a scientific literacy test. Among the statements the participants had to wrestle with were: “Ordinary tomatoes do not have genes, whereas genetically modified tomatoes do” (false), and “the oxygen we breathe comes from plants” (true).

The results from more than 2,500 respondents revealed the curious trend. “What we found is that as the extremity of opposition increased, objective knowledge went down, but self-assessed knowledge went up,” Fernbach said.</p>


When I was writing a lot about GM foods, about 20 years ago, it was noticeable that many of the arguments against them came from emotion. (There are some legitimate arguments against GM, around intellectual property on seeds.) But I suspect this result could be generalised; it's something of a <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning–Kruger_effect">Dunning-Kruger</a> corollary.

Chevy's latest 'Real People, Not Actors' ad disputed by advocates
The ad, which was published to YouTube on Jan. 1 and began airing on TV this month, claims Chevy has higher reliability than Ford, Honda, Toyota and 23 other brands "based on a recent nationwide survey."

The referenced survey was conducted by Paris-based Ipsos over the last 12 months. It involved owners of 2015 model-year vehicles that were in service from December 2014 to June 2015. But the vehicles shown in the ad are the current versions of the Chevrolet Equinox, Silverado, Traverse and Malibu -- all of which have been redesigned since 2015.
