The Agenda: Science, Society and Politics

by The Agenda Recommended 15.03.2017

“For years, many scientists and researchers have preferred to remain out of politics, wary of any potential taint to the pure empiricism of science. However, with potential cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency, among others, many are beginning to sound the alarm. The Agenda looks at the role of science in society, and whether scientists should become more involved in politics and policymaking.”

Watch President and CEO Dr. Alan Bernstein on The Agenda with Steve Paikin.
