Junk Science vs. Real Science: How Can We Tell the Difference?
November 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm ESTFree
How can someone untrained in science and mathematics make informed judgments about the claims of those who present themselves as experts? There is no easy answer, but there are strategies we can use to avoid being taken in. Join us for a conversation between a physicist, a nuclear engineer, and a biologist. They will provide examples of junk science, discuss the importance of recognizing what is and is not science, and demonstrate how statistics can be manipulated to stand truth on its head. With Edson Brolin, Stuart Lowrie, and John Andrews.
