Chaired by Channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow, the presenters include environmentalist and author Stewart Brand; British environmentalist and author, Mark Lynas who believes the green lobby ‘cried wolf’ too often; African scientist Dr Florence Wambugu, who is a champion for genetically modified crops in order to stave off hunger and malnutrition, despite widespread opposition against them; Indian environmentalist Sunita Narain, who wants to bring electricity to 400 million people in India and lastly, Dr. Shantaram, a GM scientist and lobbyist. The debate will also be produced by Darlow Smithson.
