Characters The Republican War on Science

The Republican War on ScienceNot uniue to the Bush administration but it is largely a Republican phenomenon born of a conservative dislike of environmental health and safety regulation and at the extremes of evolution and legalized abortion In The Republican War on ScienceChris Mooney ties together the disparate strands of the attack on science into a compelling and frightening account of our governments increasing unwillingness to distinguish between legitimate research and ideologically driven pseudoscience.

Mooney's book is an excellent review of the manipulation of science by the Right in America From denial and manipulation of consensus scientific opinion about climate change to the intelligent design lunacy he covers the right wing attack on science over the past 25 years thoroughlyMooney raises a very important point about science and its treatment in the media The conventional he said she said journalistic coverage of scientific matters by journalists who seldom have any comprehension of the scientific method is sadly misleading Science through the mechanisms of peer review and independent replication of observations is an inherently self correcting enterprise Trying to achieve journalistic balance by comparing a view from a consensus of scientific experts against a usually politically driven contrarian does not reflect the true nature of scientific debate It gives the fringe deniers of climate change effects of tobacco smoke or the decidedly unscientific creationists far influence than their marginal ideas warrantIf you care about science in North America I strongly urge you to buy this book
