reading & book signing for "The Republican War on Science"
Tuesday, September 12 at 7 pm
at The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco)
On issues like stem cell research, climate change, abstinence education, and even ergonomics - the positions of the Bush administration fly in the face of scientific consensus. Does the current administration ignore mainstream research to please its conservative base? Have business groups and religious lobbies helped it do so? The answer can be found in The Republican War on Science, Chris Mooney’s compelling account of our government’s attack on reason.
Chris Mooney is the Washington, DC correspondent for Seed Magazine. Formerly an editor at The American Prospect, Mooney is a journalist specializing in science and politics. He has written for Mother Jones, Wired, the Boston Globe, Slate, and other publications.
