Who is really in the trenches of the War on Science?

So, who is engaging in a war on science?

Of course, it is those on the right who refuse to genuflect to the dogma of settled science on the topic of man-caused global warming, right?

Not so fast, says John Stossel in a commentary posted on Townhall today. He interviewed veteran science writer John Tierney, who says, “The real war on science is the one from the left.”

It is the left that quashes any attempts to perfect genetically modified foods to feed the masses. It is left that refuses to even look at any scientific evidence of any genetic differences between the races, such as intelligence. It is the left that refuses to even consider that there is a fundamental difference between the sexes.

Here is a video Stossel posted with specific examples of leftists fighting science:
