Congress’s Science Committee Doesn’t Get Science

I’m not in the business of injecting unnecessary political controversy into the science world, but let this serve as a reminder that entrusting the future of science to people with no understanding of science can lead us nowhere but backwards.

It’s in your hands. Envision a future full of wonder, created by science, and then demand that it comes to pass.

Are we curious humans or fearful ostriches?

This is embarrassing. It’s not the job of science to meddle in politics, as they tend to put bias toward proving one thing or another. 

However, when the head legislative group is made up of people who directly dispute well established scientific thinking..something needs to change.
