As we speak, Barack Obama is undoing eight years of Bush success in building a high wall of separation between SCIENCE and STATE!
Yesterday, Obama announced the appointment of a Nobel Prize winning scientist to his cabinet, and also the appointment, to a governmental position, of a woman who was once president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
What’s this world coming to?
Here’s Obama, in his weekly radio address, talking about science as something, well, good, and important to protect:
From landing on the moon, to sequencing the human genome, to inventing the Internet, America has been the first to cross that new frontier because we had leaders who paved the way: leaders like President Kennedy, who inspired us to push the boundaries of the known world and achieve the impossible; leaders who not only invested in our scientists, but who respected the integrity of the scientific process.
Because the truth is that promoting science isn’t just about providing resources – it’s about protecting free and open inquiry. It’s about ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology. It’s about listening to what our scientists have to say, even when it’s inconvenient – especially when it’s inconvenient. Because the highest purpose of science is the search for knowledge, truth and a greater understanding of the world around us.
