Germany versus Science

Final sentence in the WSJ editorial, "Germany versus science" ($):
"if Europeans miss out on the jobs, growth and cheaper products that come with free trade, they'll have the green lobby to blame". 
That green lobby has a lot to answer for. The other huge thing they have go answer for is the campaign against nuclear energy, starting in the late sixties, that halted the move to carbon-free energy. To the extent that we have too much CO2 in the atmosphere, causing climate change, it's the greenies wot dun it.
They, the greenies, urge us to "respect the science" on global climate change, but willfully ignore the science on the safety of GMOs.
