Saving science from “Unscientific America”

Saving science from "Unscientific America"

Chris Mooney, author of the bestselling book The Republican War on Science, teamed up with scientist Sheril Kirshenbaum to write Unscientific America: How Scientific Illiteracy Threatens Our Future

Out of all the topics that they could have used—stem cell research, alternate energy sources, global warming, evolution—it’s baffling that they begin with Pluto. Still, there were plenty more pages, so I soldiered on with optimism, hoping that at least some part of the book would reveal a unique perspective. Sadly, what was revealed were incomplete arguments and vague suggestions.
