Abstract:

Is global warming real? Are industries to blame? Is there a hole in the ozone layer? Did irresponsible consumers cause it? Which scientists should we believe?For centuries, people have counted on science to provide them with objective answers to questions about the world of nature, but on pressing environmental issues such as global warming and ozone depletion, some special interest groups are striving to bend science to their agendas. Spinning data into webs of rhetoric, such groups run the risk of creating more confusion than clarity, fostering a paralysis of public opinion and environmental policy. This program considers the consequences of exploiting science to shape public policy.
