Steve Newton's picture

Geology professor Steven Newton knows firsthand how the nature of science--distorted by "merchants of doubt" who push ideology and pseudoscience--is misunderstood by students. Newton's research on this topic led him to join NCSE as a Programs and Policy Director, where he organizes grass root responses to creationist flare-ups, from individual classrooms to entire states. With broad interests in paleoclimatology, paleontology, science education, and the phenomenon of science denial, Newton has written for New Scientist, Christian Science Monitor, Philadelphia Inquirer, Huffington Post, Earth, and The Earth Scientist.
