Many politicians and viable candidates promote distinctly anti-science rhetoric; why are so many Americans ready to accept ignorant or hostile takes on topics including climate change, abortion, and evolution? Where do Barack Obama and Mitt Romney stand on scientific issues, and how does science affect policy making? What exactly is "junk science" and how do we separate it from legitimate science?
Cara Santa Maria (Senior Science Correspondent, Huffingtonpost.com) lead this weeks panel to discuss these issues and more with Robert Green (Executive Producer of HuffPost Live), Randy Olson (Scientist, Scientific filmmaker), and Rob Eagle (Caltech Geochemist). Special thanks to Maura Cowley (Powervote.org, energyactioncoalition.org) for sending in a point.
