Chris Mooney: The War on Science - What Have We Learned?

11:00 AM, Sunday, May 4, 2008

Science has never been more crucial to deciding the political issues facing the country, yet it has never gotten less respect in government. In governmental agencies, scientific findings have been reported in a politicized manner or even suppressed entirely, while government scientists themselves have come under attack or been prevented from speaking openly.

Chris Mooney— the journalist who first wove together the story of the “war on science” and explained its causes—chronicles the abuses and looks ahead, describing how the lawmakers, media, public, and even scientists themselves must restore scientific integrity.

Mooney is the author of two books, including the New York Times bestselling The Republican War on Science and Storm World: Hurricanes, Politics, and the Battle Over Global Warming. He also writes for numerous newspapers and magazines, lectures at universities, and appears frequently on radio and TV.

WHEN: 11:00 a.m., Sunday, May 4, 2008.
