The War on Science: Who's waging it, why it matters, what we can do about it.

The War on Science: Who's waging it, why it matters, what we can do about it.

Author: Shawn Otto Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: 01/01/2021

Every so often an audio book comes along that changes the way you view the world. The War on Science: Who's Waging It, Why It Matters, What We Can Do About It by Shawn Otto is one of those rare audio books. If you care about attacks on climate science and the rise of authoritarianism, if you care about biased media coverage or shake-your-head political tomfoolery, this audio book is for you. "The Definitive Book on Science Denialism in America" "The war on science is real, and we ignore it at our peril" "Wherever the people are well informed," Thomas Jefferson wrote, "they can be trusted with their own government." But what happens when they are not? In every issue of modern society-from climate change to vaccinations, transportation to technology, health care to defense-we are in the midst of an unprecedented expansion of scientific progress and a simultaneous expansion of danger. At the very time we need them most, scientists and the idea of objective knowledge are being bombarded by a vast, well-funded, three-part war on science. The result is an unprecedented erosion of thought in Western democracies as voters, policymakers, and justices actively ignore the evidence from science, leaving major policy decisions to be based on the demands of the most strident voices. Shawn Otto's provocative audio book investigates the historical, social, philosophical, political, and emotional reasons for why and how evidence-based politics are in decline and authoritarian politics are once again on the rise, and offers a vision, an argument, and compelling solutions to bring us to our collective senses, before it's too late.
