Less science spending on the horizon

US science faces big chill
[Via News at Nature – Most Recent]

Spending cuts and political battles loom on the horizon.


And the Republicans say that they would rather scrutinize every program than to allow the institutions such as NSF to determine what projects should be funded. Yep, I will really look forward to some of the idiots and anti-science politicians examining science-based research.

Looks like we will be in for another 2 years, at least, of anti-science sentiment from the House. For example, we have the head of Environment and Economy Subcommittee, John Shimkus, who believes that God would not let climate change occur. Just a small sample of what we can look forward to as we cut science spending.

Why  am  I reminded of Clarence  Darrow’s  speech?
