Chris Mooney: The Republican War on Science

A couple of videos on YouTube featuring Chris Mooney, author of The Republican War on Science, talking about the use & abuse of science for political purposes. An interesting commentary on the current situation in the USA and a cautionary tale for those of us in Canada. I've watched the first one, below. The second one is here; I haven't watched all of that one yet. They're both about 30 minutes.

I haven't read the book yet either but plan to read and review it on the other blog fairly soon. For some reason the book isn't on the shelves yet in Canadian bookstores. via The Intesection.
