EcoNews Report: Science under attack in D.C.


Science is under attack in Washington, D.C. Here in Arcata, we value science, facts, and science-based evidence. Whether you value health and medicine, public safety in tsunami zones, or protecting endangered species, science is critical in developing public policy. Geologist and HSU Lecturer Jay Patton talks with Humboldt Baykeeper Director Jennifer Kalt about science, facts, how to recognize pseudoscience or “alt-facts,” and why science is a cornerstone of public policy.

The EcoNews Report is presented by the Northcoast Environmental Center.
