Author Shawn Otto talks with Pat about his book: The War on Science: Who's Waging It, Why It Matters, What We Can Do About It.

Sean Otto is the co-founder and producer of the U.S. Presidential Science Debates, the largest political initiative in the history of science. His writing has appeared in Science, Salon, Scientific American, and the National Academies’ Issues in Science & Technology.

With climate change in the headlines, there is an ongoing debate over if it's scientifically verifiable, or if it's just a conspiracy theory used for political gains. Our guest helps clarify.

How is the San Francisco / Bay Area impacted by climate change?
How have both political left and right shunned science to further their own ends?
Find out what callers have to say about how bad science effects courtroom cases, how lack of understanding affects health, and much more.
