When science becomes political


Click Here

Opinion reads: I think that’s because people differentiate properly between what are sometimes called bench scientists, and the politicized “science” advocates that too often seek to harness our general support for science as the horses to pull their own political/ideological agenda carts.  We’ve seen that repeatedly in the global warming debate, the embryonic stem cell issue, environmental controversies, and etc.  They also seek to conflate a scientific “finding,” e.g., the earth has warmed in the last century–with advocates’ desired political “solution,” e.g., global warming hysteria.
