Review of some common elements of modern science controversies.

This is the fifth, and last, in a series of essays discussing ongoing scientific controversies—each one a so-called “science war”.  This essay attempts to illuminate the similarities that exist between the four previous topics and, of course,  the Climate Wars.
Warning:  This is not a short essay.  Dig in when you have time to read a longer piece.
So far in this series, I have written about The Salt Wars,  The Great Barrier Reef Wars, The War on Sugar and most recently The Obesity Epidemic [aka The Obesity Wars].  At the end of each of these essays, I have encouraged readers not to get ahead of themselves by drawing parallels to the Climate Wars, promising that I will get to it in the end–this essay is that end.   What follows is my analysis of the core elements of Modern Scientific Controversies.

For nerds, the dangerous liaison of science and government by Bill Butos and Thomas McQuade.
