Political interference in science  

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

From the website:

In recent years, scientists who work for and advise the federal government have seen their work manipulated, suppressed, distorted, while agencies have systematically limited public and policy maker access to critical scientific information. To document this abuse, the Union of Concerned Scientists has created the The A to Z Guide to Political Interference in Science.

Here are a sample if you feel overwhelmed by the amount of material at the website:

- Press “Minders” Required at Scientists’ Interviews
- NASA Reaches for Muzzle as Renowned Climate Scientist Speaks Out
- National Nuclear Security Administration Panel Dismissed
- Litmus Test for Appointees at the National Institute on Drug Abuse
