Joe Meert over at Science, AntiScience and Geology feels a little paranoid about a Florida Junk Science Elimination Act. Joe digs into the background of the act and the people involved and concludes:
In other words, these ‘junk science’ bills are simply a backdoor to allow junk science into the classrooms under the guise of ‘equal opportunity’. While the above bill is supposedly about tort reform, the notion that ‘junk science’ legislation is making it’s way into the legislature offers a cautionary note for those of us concerned with valid science. “Junk Science” bills are, in my opinion, trash.
