In the Information Age, how can you discern legitimate science from cherry-picked data, opinion posing as fact, association confused with cause and effect, bogus advice from self-appointed experts, misused statistics, and even fraud?
Join us for the Lorne Trottier 2014 Public Science Symposium!
Limited seats!! No reservations, just drop by--first come, first serve!
Don't forget to join us October 6 and 7 for the 2014 Lorne Trottier Public Science Symposium "ARE WE ALONE?"
Information is the key to life. We want to know what to eat, how to protect our environment, what risks to avoid and what to do if illness strikes. But when it comes to acquiring information, it is the best of times and the worst of times. It is the age of wisdom, it is the age of foolishness. Newspapers, television, radio and of course the Internet bombard us with information at an unprecedented rate, but when it comes to scientific issues the quality of the information is variable.
