Science on Tap

Blondie's Food & Drink
Kathleen Lee from the HSU Department of Politics will give an informal lecture entitled "Is Science a Liberal Conspiracy?
How science became a partisan issue and what can be done about it."

In the US today, political ideology and party identification are the factors that correlate most strongly with an individual’s position on scientific issues such as belief in evolution or anthropogenic climate change. A 2012 Gallup survey found that 58% of Republicans believed that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years as opposed to 41% of Democrats. The difference is even starker on climate change with 58% believing it is a hoax versus only 11% of Democrats. This is a relatively new phenomena.

How did scientific consensus become a partisan issue? The answer lies in political and social changes that began in the late 1960s and the subsequent push back against environmental regulation by industry. Scientists will need to develop more effective means of communication with a skeptical public in order to facilitate policies to address the environmental challenges we face.
