60 Minutes: Cold Fusion Is Hot Again
Rating

When a pair of scientists first introduced cold nuclear fusion in 1989 as a source of almost limitless energy, the scientific community quickly discredited the experiments. In some venues, these experiments are case studies in faulty scientific investigation. But now a respected scientist at SRI International is doing extensive research on the same process -- with promising results. This 12-minute investigative report by CBS 60 Minutes explores the renewed interest in cold fusion and its implications for society. This resource is available for free online viewing. A four-page text synopsis is also provided. It could be especially useful as a springboard for a lesson on the importance of objectivity in scientific experimentation.

The American eugenics movement and bad science, James WatsonSite: DNA Interactive (www.dnai.org)
Rating

Interviewee: James Watson DNAi Location:Chronicle>Threat of the unfit>epilogue Going beyond the data Eugenicists went beyond the data provided by pedigrees, in asserting that mental illnesses were caused by single genes. Epilogue Many prominent Americans saw eugenics as a progressive solution to social problems ? including Theodore Roosevelt, Alexander Graham Bell, Luther Burbank (the California seed producer), Henry Fairfield Osborn (president of the American Museum of Natural History), and David Starr Jordan (first president of Stanford University). Sophisticated geneticists ? including Thomas Hunt Morgan, Hermann Muller, and William Ernest Castle ? supported eugenics at one time or another, but rejected coercive legislation based on an incomplete knowledge of genes involved in complex behaviors. In general, eugenicists were lax in defining the criteria for measuring many of the "traits" they studied, and they were too quick to force their data to fit into simple Mendelian templates. American eugenicists sought genetic explanations of human behavior to the almost total exclusion of environmental or social circumstances. Thus, Davenport amusingly concluded that naval captains were influenced by a gene for "thalassophilia" (love of the sea), rather than childhoods spent around ships. More ominously, "pauperism" and "social dependency" were interpreted as genetic problems, rather than a financial ones. In retrospect, eugenicists' pedigrees of faulty genes are striking examples of lack of education and opportunity. The Johnson Immigration Restriction Act of 1924 made cunning use of statistics to change the complexion of American immigration. It limited immigrants from each country according to their proportion in the U.S. population in 1890, a time prior to the major waves of southern and eastern European immigration when the U.S. was decidedly more Anglo-Nordic in composition. This had the eugenicists? desired effect of cutting off immigration from southern and eastern Europe. This xenophobia persisted for half a century ? U.S. immigration did not reach pre-Johnson Act levels again until the late 1980s. James Watson discusses the failure of eugenics to identify genetic differences between people they considered "fit" and "unfit."
