This is both my personal learning project and my contribution in the struggle to confront the ongoing Republican/ libertarian assault on rational science and constructive learning, as manifested in their malicious strategic Attacks on Science ~ A collection of articles, scientific resources, plus my own essays and indepth critique of various presentations from unidirectional-skeptics ~ Hopefully a resource for the busy, yet discerning, student who's concerned about the health of our Earth
Exploring Conservative Think Tanks - index to Dunlap, Jacques (2013) project
I have a bit of over-attention syndrome, for example in researching some NC20 Burton related leads, I came across Dunlap and Jacques 2013.A study where they investigate the connection between climate science denying books and Conservative Think Tanks.I’ve skimmed it before, but this time it seemed more relevant and I noticed it had a CC license, allowing reprinting with attribution, Considering sometimes I get sick of dealing with professional liars and need some diversion into serious science, this seemed like a refreshing project.
So I wound up with an eight part series to add to my collection of substantive information sources that help describe the workings of the economically motived faith-based attack on science America has been subjected to for far too long. This is the index to the series.
Sections 3, 4, 5, 6 include links to a great deal of supporting information. For chapter 8, I looked up and included links to their extensive reference sources. Thank you Professors Riley Dunlap and Peter Jacques for all your efforts. Happy learning.
