The War on Science


Carl Sagan once said, "We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology."

Despite science being appreciated and understood more widely now than in any other period of human history, the past decades have seen politicians, investors and society turn their back on science.

This short film by AsapSCIENCE examines the "War on Science" – which has seen massive cuts to science funding and the decline of science's influence in politics.
