With featured input from Evidence for Democracy, Part 3 focuses on how science can fight back against ideological attacks.
Evidence for Democracy on CBC Ideas' Science under Siege
The final episode of CBC Ideas' 3-part series, "Science under Siege" on science and democracy aired on June 5, 2015. It featured input from E4D's Executive Director, Dr. Katie Gibbs, on how science can withstand the attacks against it and overcome ideology and focused largely on Evidence for Democracy's efforts in this endeavour. Given rising concerns over cuts to important government research monitoring programs, reduced funding for basic scientific research, and the restrictive nature of government communication policies for federal scientists, this is a timely and informative piece that everyone should hear!
