RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

21st Century Science and Technology is a quarterly magazine published by the Lyndon LaRouche organization. The magazine mainly serves as an outlet for LaRouche's crank views on science, which tend toward denialism of global warming, space-based weaponry, and a lot of quirky and odd science woo.[citation needed]

It replaced an earlier magazine called Fusion,[1] which was the publication of the Fusion Energy Foundation, a LaRouche front group which had some success in wooing mainstream nuclear scientists into alliances with him.

On the positive side, LaRouche is a big fan of building high-speed rail transport and big infrastructure projects.[2] Don't be fooled, this is the stopped clock effect at work folks.

LaRouche appears to be fascinated with the work of 19th century German scientist and mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss, who is frequently referenced in this magazine. He also seems to be fascinated with the pseudomathematical concepts of "squaring the circle" [3] and "doubling the cube"[4].

Originally a print magazine, since 2006 it has been web-only.[citation needed]

As of 2017 it has been almost 4 years since the last issue and 2 years since the "New" section has been updated[5]
