We studied junk science through the "closed" case of the Alar controversy and the "open" case of global warming. To do this, we performed an instrumental case study using Alar and conducted semistandardized elite interviews with global warming interest groups. We formulate a theoretical model of junk science, and use the results of the interviews to suggest tactics for the Union of Concerned Scientists to better deal with junk science.
