The Danger of Science Denial

I came across this TED video of Michael Specter’s talk about the dangers confronting us as the war against science progresses.

Here’s TED’s description of the video:”TED Talks Vaccine-autism claims, “Frankenfood” bans, the herbal cure craze: All point to the public’s growing fear (and, often, outright denial) of science and reason, says Michael Specter. He warns the trend spells disaster for human progress.”
