As usual, being on the road is starting to wear on me a little bit…but there’s one more talk tonight, and then I hole myself up again to work on the hurricane book. This one is in Santa Fe:
Friday, September 29
7:00 PM-8:30 PM
College of Santa Fe
Santa Fe, NM
Meanwhile, Dietram Scheufele also blogged my appearance eariler this week in Madison, WI. As he puts it: “Mooney is one of the very few writers in D.C. at the moment who understand the importance of successful strategic communication about emerging technologies, and who is able to articulate this message very succinctly. We are not just seeing a ‘war’ on science by some policy makers, but we are also seeing attempts on both sides of the aisle to reframe scientific issues around moral values and belief systems of the respective political bases.”
Exactly. It’s time to stop losing the communications battle over scientific information–period.
