“We can’t just conclude that science puts too much power into the hands of morally feeble technologists or corrupt, power-crazed politicians and decide to get rid of it. Advances in medicine and agriculture have saved more lives than have been lost in all the wars in history. Advances in transportation, communication, and entertainment have transformed the world. The sword of science is double-edged.” – Carl Sagan

Sword of Science is a wide-ranging blog about scientific discoveries across all disciplines, with a focus on the societal and environmental impacts of new scientific research. It’s written by Daniel Walton, a master’s graduate from the Department of Crop Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is currently a freelance science writer and editor based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. His articles have appeared in publications including RealClearScience, GlobalPost, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. In his free time, Daniel enjoys playing bass and cello in a number of bands, unapologetically nerdy board games, and hiking to see biology in its rawest form.

  1. Congratulations, I have nominated your website for the Liebster Award! I wanted to thank some of the writers I have talked with on WordPress.

    The Liebster Award is used to recognize writers, and allows each nominee to nominate additional website writers. The tradition is for each each nominee to: (1) list 11 facts about themselves; (2) answer the 11 questions asked by the writer who nominated them; (3) to ask 11 new questions; and (4) to nominate 11 additional websites/blogs, and inform them of this and the rules. This can be done as a Page on your website, or it could be completed in a comment box. To see the new questions I have asked, visit the Awards and FAQs Page on my website Eusociality Blog.
