Science Cafe: Bending Science If a scientific study claims something is true, is it true? And if a science expert testifies in court, is that testimony unassailable? On Monday two legal experts contend that science is often manipulated to support positions in legal trials or debates over public health issues. Plus, we'll take a few minutes to speak with MIT lecturer and author Peter Senge about how to create a sustainable world. Join us at 9 on 90.3.
