Surprise that GM result was surprising

Your analysis seems to ignore the reality that from a purely scientific perspective, climate science and the technique of genetic modification are poles apert from each other.
Climate science is independent science in pursuit of planetary and human well-being, while GM is the pursuit of wealth, power and control by a tiny minority in their own narrow interest, with no regard for planetary and human well-being.
The free-market worldview is therefore threatened by acceptance of global warming science but promoted by acceptance of GM. Why was your finding so remarkable?

For the reasons you note, I thought it was surprising that there was _no_ association between free-market support and GM Foods. This result runs counter to much media speculation.
