Hippies are causing world hunger by spreading anti-GMO sentiment.

There are legitimate concerns with GMO's. You can't blame them for world hunger (which is completely ridiculous anyways) when they have real concerns.

GM crops are designed to not breed with non-GMOs. Also, there is no reason to think that they are dangerous. Additionally, feeding people is more important than a farmer's economic well-being.

No, many other factors are in play and reasoned concerns are understandable (but I of course recognize that saying "GMOs are inherently bad" is ridiculous).

There's no reason for concern. GMOs are in 80% of food in the U.S. and have been proven to be completely safe. GMOs can grow more food faster and more efficiently then non GMO crops. Opposing GMOs would only make it harder to feed everyone.

Practices associated with GMOs may be of concern (excess herbicide use with herbicide resistant crops, business practices and the effect on small farmers, etc.). But yes, GMs are generally determined to be safe for consumption.

Anti-GMO and anti-nuclear individuals are doing a ton of harm to both the planet and humanity.

Anti-nuclear is justified. We should just go fully-renewable.

Being anti-nuclear isn't justified. Nuclear energy is extremely safe, efficient, clean, and fiscally responsible. Nuclear energy is the best way to lower pollution as soon as possible.

It still pollutes and solar would work perfectly.

That's simply false. It releases no air pollution or green house gases. 3/5 of all clean energy produced in the U.S. comes from nuclear energy.

Yes, but if something breaks. As what do you do with the waste? Also, I am not anti-nuclear, I am just saying the anti-nuclear arguments are a lot more credible than the anti-GMO ones.

Here's my concern with nuclear: I've read that the Brussels terrorists originally planned on going to a nuclear power plant, trying to kill millions. That scares me.
