Chris Mooney’s Republican War on Science, Revised and Updated

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


Last summer in the pages of Mother Jones, science writer Chris Mooney exposed ExxonMobil’s efforts to thwart climate change research, complete with details you may not have seen until they showed up in Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, a year later.

Today Mooney’s New York Times bestseller, The Republican War on Science comes out in paperback. You can check out an excerpt on intelligent design and read the book’s new intro, online. And Mooney’s headed out on tour and may be coming to your town; he’s a prescient writer, not to be missed.

-N.B., you can also catch Chris on Mother Jones Radio September 17th.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
