The Frog Scientist controversy

Dr. Tyrone Hayes, star of THE FROG SCIENTIST, is the subject of “A Valuable Reputation”, a recent New Yorker article by Rachel Aziz. When Dr. Hayes spoke out against atrazine, a pesticide made by Syngenta, the company began a campaign to discredit Dr. Hayes that went well beyond disputing his scientific findings. Way, WAY beyond. An NPR interview with Rachel Aziz provides a short introduction. The revelations are stunning. Teachers will find much here to discuss with upper middle school and high school students.
