Persistent attempts to attack and undermine the credibility of science have been coming from the Bush II administration and the American political right in general.

These attacks have been most notable in the areas of:

  • evolution by natural selection (re-branded as "Darwinism", i.e. just another ideology): overwhelmingly agreed upon by scientists (especially those in relevant fields such as biology, geology, and psychology) but now disbelieved by a majority of Americans
  • global warming (see global warming denial): agreed upon by the vast majority of scientists, but "controversial" in the US


The war on science refers specifically to initiatives which appear to be organized and widespread; individual or unorganized attacks on science are merely anti-science.
