Announcing the Next Point of Inquiry: Joe Romm on the Tea Party's Anti-Science Tendencies

By Chris Mooney | October 20, 2010 9:18 am

joe_rommAs the midterm election nears, Sheril has been doing some great blogging about Christine O’Donnell’s wacky views on science, religion, and the constitution.

On Friday, I’ll be mining this vein some more on Point of Inquiry. My guest: Top climate blogger Joe Romm, who will discuss the Tea Party movement’s anti-science and anti-environment tendencies, with particular respect to climate change.

Romm never pulls any punches, and for this show, um, he didn’t either.

So stand by….with the PZ Myers debate last time around–which is on track to be my most downloaded show–and now this one, I think we’re going to have a pretty popular run of programs.
