New Yorker staff writer Michael Specter argues for a new Enlightenment in his newly-released book "Denialism." From genetically modified grains to pharmaceuticals, Specter contends that Americans have come to mistrust institutions and to view science as a political constituency that isn't always looking out for the public's best interest. He champions a renewed approach to new technologies, while acknowledging their limitations and threats, and an end to the war against progress in this time of mankind's greatest scientific advances.
