same email address is given on the website, so I suspect
email@example.com would work also.
Center for Global Food Issues
Hudson Institute's agricultural and environmental policy research
group, the Center for Global Food Issues, offers a comprehensive
perspective on future world food needs, hunger prevention,
agricultural technology, environmental sustainability, and natural
resource conservation. Directed by Dennis Avery, the center is
committed to finding ways of increasing agricultural production to
help preserve the world's environment.
So they're both there. How nice, it's a family effort.
The Center for Global Food Issues is one of the Hudson Institute's
Policy Centers and here are our protagonists:

From 1980-1988, Dennis T. Avery served as agricultural analyst for the
U.S. Department of State... Avery is the author of ... Saving the
Planet with Pesticides and Plastic: The Environmental Triumph of
High-Yield Farming (Hudson Institute, 1995). The second edition of
Saving the Planet is scheduled to be published in 2000. ...
Avery's article, "What's Wrong with Global Warming?" was published in
the August 1999 issue of Reader's Digest. [He likes global warming?]
He travels the world as a speaker, has testified before Congress, and
has appeared on most of the nation's major television networks,
including a program discussing the bacterial dangers of organic foods
on ABC-TV's "20/20".

Smug looking kid. Daddy's tiger.
Since joining the Center in 1994, Avery has spoken to a wide variety
of national and international audiences and has represented the Center
at the United Nations World Food Summit in Rome.
The Center for Global Food Issues looks at agricultural policy from a
global perspective, with reference to both economic and environmental
impacts. Publications and Media Exposure Avery is the co-author of
"Farming to Sustain the Environment," Hudson Briefing Paper No. 190,
(Hudson Institute, May 1996) and his articles have appeared in many
publications, including Des Moines Register, USA Today Magazine, The
Washington Times, and Canada's Western Producer.
He is the author of a new peer-reviewed study documenting that
nitrates in drinking water do not cause the infamous "blue baby
syndrome" in infants ("Infantile Methemoglobinemia: Reexamining the
Role of Drinking Water Nitrates," Environmental Health Perspectives,
July 1999). He also has spoken on the benefits of high-technology
farming techniques, sustainability, preservation of natural habitat
and species, and a variety of other agricultural topics during
numerous radio and television interviews.
Co-opting the environmental theme seems to be their pitch. Shouldn't
be hard to debunk if enough serious and sustained effort is made.

I can't say how productive it would be, but I'm sure that these policy
centers and bastions of GMO technology promotion would be interested
in knowing all of your points of view.
