Exchange Exemplar: The Need To Defend Science

Does it ever feel like every single person thinks they're a scientist? Just ask someone you don't know about global warming or vaccines, and watch what happens.

Lee McIntyre has long studied the history of science, and he may live in one of the best periods ever for studying how people use and react to science.

His findings are contained in the book The Scientific Attitude: Defending Science from Denial, Fraud, and Pseudoscience.

Bear in mind that book and interview are from just before the pandemic... he might have much more to say today.
