Reality Check

I'm excited about this new book I borrowed from the library: Reality Check: How Science Deniers Threaten Our Future by Donald Prothero. There are chapters on climate change, religion, AIDS deniers, astrology, peak oil and more. This is going to be really good. From the Foreword on 9/11 conspiracies:

"What is the evidence for this conspiratorial claim? There is no positive evidence whatsoever--no security camera videotape or people planting explosive devices, no explosive device debris in the World Trade Center ruins, no letters, emails, memos, or documents of any kind, no confessions by conspirators or their friends, family, or colleagues who might have overheard a clandestine conversation, and no one coming forward to tell all in a book or on a television talk show about what they saw or heard. Nothing."
