Donald Prothero - Reality Check
Oct 28 2013 7:30 pm
Historic LoDo: Donald Prothero, Emeritus Professor of Geology at Occidental College and Lecturer in Geobiology at the California Institute of Technology, will offer a PowerPoint presentation and sign his new book Reality Check: How Science Deniers Threaten Our Future ($35.00 Indiana University Press). In his book, Prothero describes how major scientific ideas that are accepted by the entire scientific community (evolution, anthropogenic global warming, vaccination, the HIV cause of AIDS, and others) have been attacked with totally unscientific arguments and methods. He argues that science deniers pose a serious threat to society, as their attempts to subvert the truth have resulted in widespread scientific ignorance, increased risk of global catastrophes, and deaths due to the spread of diseases that could have been prevented.
