Michael Specter at TED 2010: The danger of science denial

I end my brief blogging sabbatical by posting this superb lecture I saw from the TED podcast a couple of weeks ago.

Vaccine-autism claims, “Frankenfood” bans, the herbal cure craze: all point to the public’s growing fear (and, often, outright denial) of science and reason, says Michael Specter.  He warns the trend spells disaster for human progress.
