In this provocative, wide-ranging, and hard-hitting book, University of Chicago biology professor Dan Agin argues from the center that we will pay a heavy price for the follies of people who consciously twist the public’s understanding of the real world. Agin separates fact from conveniently “scientific” fiction and exposes the data faking, reality ignoring, fear mongering, and outright lying that contribute to intentionally manufactured public ignorance. We already pay a heavy price for many groups’ conscious manipulation of the public’s understanding of science, and Junk Science arms us with understanding, cutting through the fabric of lies and setting the record straight.
