I just made a new list of science education, nature of science websites, that detail how science works, used in politics and misrepresented by industry. This is commonly known as FUDD.  Fear, Uncertainty, Distrust and Disinformation. It happens with any controversial scientific theorom. From effects of smoking, Erin Brokovitch, CFC’s, Bisphenol A, vaccines, evolution, and of course climate change.

 

This essay at the weather underground summarizes some of it.

This website also has a good amount of information and links to some book s I need to read – soon.

Below is the diigo, webslide:

science education and fudd.
