Mark Lynas is the author of several books including The God Species (2011) and Six Degrees (2007). He is former climate change advisor to the President of the Maldives and a visiting researcher at Oxford University's School of Geography and the Environment. In January, Lynas sent shockwaves through environmental circles by publicly apologizing for his role in the anti-GMO movement.

Following his presentation Lynas joined a panel discussion with Ron Herring, Professor, Government (moderator); Peter Davies, Professor, Plant Biology; Mary-Howell Martens, Owner, Martens Farm and Lakeview Organic Grains; Margaret Smith, Professor, Plant Breeding and Genetics; David Wolfe, Professor, Horticulture; and Wendy Wolford, Associate Professor, Development Sociology.
