Description of this Book

We are in the midst of the most exciting time ever in science, with many advances taking place and bringing to the fore important ethical and environmental issues. With vigorous public engagement occurring around many areas of science and technology environmental and health issues such as global warming, the use of nuclear power, embryonic stem cell therapies this book explores these debates, analysing the scientific background and the opposing viewpoints, and arguing that the key factor in resolving the science wars is a well-informed general public. An important aspect of Australia's future is as a source of tertiary education and scientific intellectual property generation for surrounding countries, and success in achieving this full vision will depend in a large part on how the science wars are resolved.
