In recent years, it has become fashionable to characterize people with conservative political views as “anti-science.” On issues ranging from human evolution to stem cells to climate change, this anti-science bias is blamed for a great deal of political conflict and gridlock. But what is rarely discussed is the tendency for people with liberal political leanings to also pick and choose what science they believe suits their world view. In “Science Left Behind,” Alex Berezow and Hank Campbell survey the landscape of issues in which individuals on the “anti-scientific left” play fast and loose with their own understanding of science, from exaggerating the benefits of organic foods to opposing the use of animals for biomedical research. Berezow and Cambell argue that if the political right has its scientific blind spots, so too does the political left. Please join us for a luncheon discussion of this important new book.
