Just got back from a pleasant evening spent with my fellow SciBling Chris Mooney. Chris gave a great talk here in Tempe which not only gave the gist of his book, The Republican War on Science, but also detailed positive ways in which things can be changed. Needless to say, scientists bear some of the load in changing things.
Following the talk, I got to meet some of my readers (and also readers of Chris’ blog) and to hang with Chris and some of his family for a few hours. Pictured above are I, Chris and his (somewhat evil looking but good guy) uncle Tom Cole at a local hostelry after a beer or two … or three.
