Ring True #2: Social Warming
Ring True explores the role of politics, psychology, and tech giants in the spread of misinformation in science. The six-part miniseries will also examine how research, policymaking, and journalism help or hurt the spread of misinformation. Charles Arthur likens the gradual but eventual threat of misinformation to global warming. He calls it social warming. In this episode, we look at three key issues in science: vaccination, climate change, and the Flat Earth movement.
