I Give Up
I've been trying to come up with an appropriate response to this post and failing. It's a standard denunciation of politicized science in this administration that sounds fairly reasonable up to the last sentence:
I encourage everyone to sign the Union of Concerned Scientists petition to restore scientific integrity to government agencies.They're appealing to one of the leading anti-nuclear organizations to … restore scientific integrity to government agencies?
What is a suitable response? “I know you are but what am I?” is hackneyed. “Out of the frying pan and into the fire” is even lamer. Comparing this to a petition by Scientologists in favor of free thought might do.
Maybe I'll come up with something after the steam stops pouring out my ears.
