We have an elephant in the china shop of science.
That is the warning sounded by Chris Mooney in his upcoming book The Republican War on Science.
I have written a review for a major metropolitan newspaper, and I'll be posting it on my Science Shelf website as soon as it appears in print or on that newspaper's website.
Meanwhile, you can read excerpts of my review, discover Chris Mooney's other writing at his web site, or have a look at the creative website for the book itself, which has a very entertaining opening page.
Then prepare yourself for a lively discussion here on Blogcritics. The book will be hotter than the Sahara after another two decades of global warming, but it won't be dry.
