America's War on Science
I have few complaints living in the United States. I've been given many opportunities, been forgiven for failing, and have always been free to choose my own path.
One thing though that has continually bugged me is the seeming war on Science that occurs here that you don't see in any other first world nation.
We literally have half the population doubting basic scientific consensus, whether it be evolution, the moon landing, vaccinations, GMOs, or climate change,
And this will no doubt be evidenced by many who quickly object to any of the above by parroting the stance of their political party or religious teachings who are about as well versed in science as your neighbor- the one who has never read a science book in her life.
It's nice to see a major publication shedding some light on this issue. Maybe the United States will finally turn the corner on science.
