The Science of Denial: How Profiteering Interests Are Corrupting Science in America

Eric Byler talks to Prof. Robert Proctor about the Pioneers of Science Denial and the Human Cost of Misinformation.  

The science denial blueprint: 

  1. Assert there are many other causes of the problem
  2. Claim there is no consensus among scientists
  3. Downplay the validity of the science in any case
  4. Setup lobbying organizations that masquerade as a research institutes
  5. Inject polarization and misinformation into the national discourse using friends in elected office and in the One Percent Media
