In the United States today, scientific evidence and discovery are being overshadowed by the anti-science rhetoric of current legislation sponsored by big business. Scientific evidence can reduce risks and uncertainty, but by assaulting the source of this evidence, science, society is choosing to accept the uncertainty that comes as a consequence. As a result of this new antiscience ideology, the eight interactive global crisis 1) human economy, 2) climate change, 3) exponential human population growth, 4) ecological overshoot, 5) biotic impoverishment and the reduction of biodiversity, 6) renewable resource depletion, 7) energy allocation, and 8) environmental refugees continue to worsen as time goes on. Only science can provide the essential evidence to solve these complex crises.
