Off to Indianapolis to Talk About the Science of Denying Science

By Chris Mooney | April 29, 2011 8:50 am

I’m giving a talk this evening in Indianapolis, hosted by the local Center for Inquiry–details here.

I had been planning to talk about “Unscientific America,” but given the demand and the way the issue is resonating in the news (thanks to those birthers), I’ve changed topics to “The Science of Why We Deny Science.”

Never been to Indy before–this should be good. Blogging may suffer a tad, but, well, it’s Friday….

  1. Bon voyage…any plans for a west coast loop to the Bay Area? Your article is resonating through the science education community out here.

    No current plans…not before the AGU fall meeting in December. But always willing to consider adding something.

    Well, being stuck in the airport, maybe I will blog again after all…

    I hope you enjoy your time here, in the Hoosier state. Indy is a great town. Wish I could be there for your talk.

    Enjoy and have fun.
