Evidence and logic are lacking in many areas of public debate today on hot-button issues ranging from dietary fat to vaccination. In Science Under Attack, Dr. Alexander shows how science is being abused, sidelined or ignored, making it difficult or impossible for the public to form a reasoned opinion about important issues. Readers will learn why science is becoming more corrupt, and also how it is being abused for political and economic gain, support of activism, or the propping up of religious beliefs. To illustrate how science is being ignored and abused, the author examines six different issues and the way they are currently discussed: evolution, dietary fat, climate change, vaccination, GMO crops and continental drift. In his research, he has gone back to the original source wherever possible rather than quoting second-hand sources, adding a degree of accuracy and nuance often missing. The controversial assertion that science does not support the conventional wisdom on climate change should be of particular interest. Alexander shows that the scientific evidence for a substantial human contribution to climate change is actually flimsy, and he demonstrates the fallacy of comparing the strong link between smoking and lung cancer to the much weaker connection between human activity and global warming.

"Why do people believe in bunk? And what causes them to embrace such pseudoscientific beliefs and practices and ignore data? Noted skeptic Massimo Pigliucci sets out to separate the fact from the fantasy in this entertaining exploration of the nature of science, the borderlands of fringe science, and nonsense on stilts. Presenting case studies on a number of controversial topics, Pigliucci cuts through the ambiguity surrounding science to look more closely at how science is conducted, disseminated, and interpreted, and what it means to our society"--Publisher description.

Science can be a force for good, and it has enhanced our lives in countless ways, but even a cursory look at the last century shows that what passes for "science" can be detrimental. This book documents only some of the more recent abuses of science that informed members of the public should be aware of.

Is America in jeopardy? Any day, America could be held hostage over critical minerals used in all advanced technologies due to the decades-long shunning of domestic mining. Groundbreaking! describes the all-too-real consequences of misguided policy decisions and environmental alarmism, and recommends 21st-century solutions to sustainable self-reliance by leveraging the wealth right under our feet. By importing 100% of key minerals from China, Russia, and third world dictatorships, we face an ongoing risk of losing the technology behind everything from smartphones to "green" technology. The recent requirements put into place by our legislators and regulators literally require tons of minerals for batteries and magnets to run electric cars and trucks; to support advancements in medical equipment such as dental drills and MRIs; and to manufacture solar panels and wind turbines for alternative energy sources. Advanced weaponry and defensive equipment for our troops requires critical minerals, too, yet we are reliant on getting that gear from countries who at best could be called allies, and at worst are outright hostile to America's values. Our policies must acknowledge the reality that critical minerals, or more accurately the lack thereof, often play a key role in dictating foreign policy and national security decisions. Planning to adapt before a problem occurs must become a national goal. This means reversing dangerous import trends and exploring for domestic minerals-the two major policy goals explained in this book. With a Foreword by Paul Driessen, Senior Policy Advisor, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow "EVERYONE in government & industry should endorse this PLAN" ENDORSEMENTS: Groundbreaking! is the culmination of sharp-eyed insight into the decades-long erosion of U.S. mining and the need to reverse this self-imposed economic and national security vulnerability...Mamula and Bridges have woven together myriad threads to give us the startling implications of our failed minerals policies. National Mining Association America is sitting on a multi-trillion dollar treasure chest of minerals and valuable resources... Why aren't we benefiting from these riches buried right below our feet? Steve Moore, Distinguished Visiting Fellow, Institute for Economic Freedom, The Heritage Foundation Mamula and Bridges have succeeded in delivering a very complete narrative of where we are, how we got there, and what to do about fixing it. This book should reside in the library of every national security professional and be used as a major reference work. Dean Popps, Former US Army Acquisition Executive & Acting Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition Logistics and Technology This was a fascinating read, and compelling... [T]his should serve as a wake-up call to legislators and the general public. Our exposure to seriously restrictive policies by China could be the Sputnik Moment of our generation. John Keating, Venture Advisor, Silicon Valley, Former VP Government Programs & Discoveries Business Unit, Intermolecular, Inc. Groundbreaking! is a book that all Americans who care about our national security should read. It is a call to action to restore our mineral independence. Mamula and Bridges' book is both a readable narrative and a skilled study by two expert authorities on our mineral resources. John Adams, Brigadier General, U.S. Army (Ret.), President, Guardian Six LLC If you care about technological vulnerability in an interdependent world-and you should-Groundbreaking needs to be front and center on your bookshelf. Patrick J. Michaels, author of Lukewarming: The New Climate Science that Changes Everything Congressman Jim Santini (R-NV) and Governor and later President Ronald Reagan knew all this and much, much more but few listened to them back then. Perhaps they will listen today. William Perry Pendley, Esq., President, Mountain States Legal Foundation, Author, Sagebrush Rebel

As temperatures rise, declines in agricultural production and freshwater supply will diminish US carrying capacity by 2/3, and rising sea levels will impact the country's most densely populated regions. A frightening survey of what's to come, American Exodus argues that mankind can survive the coming century of climate chaos if we act quickly to preserve our shelter of last resort.
