Science is a required subject from kindergarten through 12th grade. It is not only a set of facts, it's a way of thinking that has served as the engine for change. Yet, in the political landscape of the U.S., science has somehow become a controversial, and even divisive topic. How have we arrived at this reality wherein some people actively oppose the systematic search for knowledge? This week on Sea Change Radio, we check in with science communicator Aaron Huertas about his advocacy work. We discuss the fight for science justice, talk about the intersection of religion, science and politics, and look at some examples of how political divisions in this country damage the science community, and ultimately, all of us.
