Abstract

There has been substantial public debate recently on a host of issues such as climate change, genetically modified crops and nuclear power; a common theme running through these issues involves science and public policy. This note will be based broadly on three interlinked themes: growth of specialization in science, significant commercial interests pushing science and technology, and a checkered track record of the promises made and the broken-reality.
