Tonight Shawn Otto's book The War on Science won the Minnesota Book Award. Watch him win and hear his brief but important comments about democracy, evidence and alternative facts below. As a former science teacher, Rebecca was very proud that the Book Awards were sponsored by Education Minnesota, and that Shawn's work on the critical importance of evidence in policymaking and politics received this wonderful recognition in their home state. Shawn also surprised his 8th grade English teacher, who was in the audience, by recognizing her from the stage.
You can join Rebecca in marching in support of science and evidence-based policymaking in Saint Paul on Earth Day, April 22.
