30 Years of Junk Science: SDI to Hydraulic Fracturing


On March 23, 1983, President Reagan called upon the scientific community to render nuclear weapons "impotent and obsolete." His Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) proposal looked to the very strengths of American ingenuity and technology that had achieved the unthinkable so many times before. Naysayers - from credentialed professionals to media darlings to political hacks - spared no quarter in their ridicule and belittling attacks. Time and again, junk science has been cited in an attempt to discredit, refute or condemn visionary ideas and processes. Join us as for an eye-opening review of the long trail of scare tactics and hyperbole so readily relied upon by the Left to push mere personal, special interest, or partisan agendas when opposing progress.
