Abuses of Science

Posted on June 18, 2012


Following on from my previous post “The Diesel files” (link), i stumbled upon an organization called the Union of Concerned Scientists. I don’t know very much about them, other than that it is an American organization, having something to do with environmental sciences, and that they are clearly concerned about things that should worry most, if not all of us: global warming, clean vehicles, food and agriculture and nuclear power safety.

More specific to this blog and the story on diesel, they also have a section on scientific Integrity, which i have to say makes for very interesting reading. Here is a link to a list of the various topics. They also wrote a report entitled “Heads they win, Tails we loose. How Corporations Corrupt Science at the Public’s Expense“. Now that sounds interesting. Links to the report can be found here, while the full and freely downloadable pdf report can be found here.

As said above, I do not know very much about these guys, so let me know what you think. In the mean time, I will be reading the report and will post a review below once it is finished….
