Skeptic Check: Science Denial

How does it happen, what drives it, and how do we deal with it?

Hosts: Seth Shostak and Molly Bentley

Climate change isn’t happening.  Vaccines make you sick. When it comes to threats to public or environmental health, a surprisingly large fraction of the population still denies the consensus of scientific evidence.  Why does the public feel that science can’t always be trusted and what can scientists do about it? We report from the Science Denial symposium held jointly by the New York Academy of Sciences and Rutgers Global Health Institute.
