Carrie Figdor (Iowa): (When) Is Science Reporting Ethical? The Case for Recognizing Shared Epistemic Responsibility in Science Journalism. A Facebook-style shift in how science is shared. How anti-science forces thrive on Facebook: Welcome to the corner of the Internet that’s hell-bent on convincing you that GMOs are poisonous, vaccines cause autism, and climate change is a government-sponsored hoax — the message is traveling far and wide. The most common tricks politicians use to muddle inconvenient science. Can the White House office of science survive Trump? The office is nearly empty, and a climate-change denier may be picked to run it.

The March for Science, explained: Thousands will demonstrate in the name of evidence-based decision-making. The March for Science is forcing science to reckon with its diversity problem: Science has long been a white men’s club. Is reaching out beyond white men an example of “politicizing” science? Science is already political — so scientists might as well march. How the March for Science misunderstands politics: If protesters want to change policies, they need to target the values, interests, and power structures that shape how research is applied.
