GM crops - beyond debate?

Scientists doing some Genetic Modification research that aims to reduce the carbon footprint of wheat are hoping that they can persuade their deep-eco opponents to talk rather than uproot the field in which the trial is taking place. And that's meant to be a big news story ...

Well ... should this evidence of #debatefail really be news? Isn't it obvious that GM should be the subject of debate rather than direct action?
