Description


According to a 2019 Pew Research Center study, only 35 percent of Americans report a great deal of confidence in scientists to act in the public interest. With Necessary Symbiosis: What Happens When Government and Science Work Together (and When They Don't), scientist Vyshnavi Karra intends to change that.


In the age of the Internet, anyone can spin the facts in misleading ways. It is for this reason, argues Karra, that scientists must become their own advocates in order to fight misinformation, anti-science policy, and science illiteracy.


In this book, you'll learn how to weaponize science for good through topics such as:

  • The complex history of the US government's relationship with science
  • The implications of data privacy on our current and future security, and
  • The effect of misinformation on science policy.

There must be a necessary symbiosis between science and government in order for society to deal with 21st-century problems. Whether you are a public official, a scientist eyeing politics, or even a concerned citizen, this book will give you the tools to become an effective advocate of science for the good of all.
