Weekly Address: The Science Team

...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.
Imagine: A science team with actual scientists encouraged to do their jobs. That's something we haven't seen in eight years.

Very welcome words from a U.S. president-- it's mid-boggling that we finally (one hopes before it's too late) have an administration that seems prepared to acknowledge & address climate change.

Thanks for linking to these vids.
