Chris Mooney: Unscientific America
Visiting Associate, Center for Collaborative History at Princeton; Co-author, Unscientific America

Mooney explores how corporate interests, science-phobic politicians, a weak educational system and lack of media coverage are contributing to the growing disconnect between the scientific community and American culture.
