Description
Politicians who have chosen to act as advocates for vested corporate interests have been known to manipulate and distort scientific facts. Some politicians don't have malevolent intentions: they just don't understand science, and repeat what their sources gather for them. Levitan helps you spot the types of blunders and obfuscations that flood the media and create an anti-science acceptance that affects our world.
