This vitally important expose shows how the Bush administration has systematically misled Americans on a wide range of scientific issues affecting public health, foreign policy, and the environment by ignoring, suppressing, manipulating, or even distorting scientific research. It is the first book to focus exclusively on how this explosive issue has played out during the presidency of George W. Bush and the first to comprehensively document his administration's abuses of science. This paperback edition contains a new preface bringing to light the most up-to-date research on these abuses."Undermining Science" covers: the Bush administration's abuse and misuse of science in areas including stem cell research, AIDS prevention, environmental protection, the Iraq war, the teaching of evolution, and global warming; the administration's use of political litmus tests in selecting administrators for science-based agencies and in selecting scientists on federal advisory committees; and, the dangerous consequences of the Bush administration's war on science for the caliber and integrity of the nation's scientific research.
