Over the past decade in America, science has grown increasingly politicized. Scientists roundly denounced the administration of George W. Bush for suppressing research and taking anti-scientific positions; when President Obama came in, he promised great changes but did not always deliver. And now what?
In this talk, Chris Mooney, who has covered the politics of science for a decade in Washington D.C., takes a look at the future of science policy under the next president (Obama or Romney). Will climate change legislation pass? Will the administration take science seriously?
