November news from The Science Shelf website

The latest Science Shelf newsletter is now available at

An Elephant in the China Shop of Science, Part 2

Part 1 was posted under media and entertainment as a heads-up to an upcoming book called The Republican War on Science by Chris Mooney. The book deals more closely with energy and environment than any other Science Blog category, so I’m posting the full review as it appears on my Science Shelf website here.
