Weather swap, the strength hindrance, nuclear proliferation—many of the main pressing difficulties of the twenty-first century require medical strategies, but the United States is paying much less and not more recognition to scientists. for each 5 hours of cable information, lower than one minute is dedicated to technology, and the variety of newspapers with technological know-how sections has gotten smaller from ninety-five to thirty-three within the final two decades. In Unscientific America, journalist and best-selling writer Chris Mooney and scientist Sheril Kirshenbaum clarify this risky situation, featuring a vast array of tasks which may opposite the present trend.
An impassioned name to hands, Unscientific America exhorts american citizens to reintegrate technological know-how into public discourse—before it's too overdue.
