Scientific Literacy: Three Sticky Topics

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Dr. Maurice Bitran, Ontario Science Centre CEO & chief science officer, joins Steve Paikin to discuss a survey on the scientific literacy of Canadians. More than 60 per cent of Canadians consider themselves science literate, but many also hold views that run counter to prevailing scientific opinion. Bitran discusses how this affects attitudes on the issues of GMO safety, global warming, and vaccinations.
