WAR AGAINST SCIENCE UPDATE: They told me if I voted for John McCain, politicized science would be the order of the day, and dissenting scientists would be squelched. And they were right! “The Obama administration blocked efforts by government scientists to tell the public just how bad the Gulf oil spill could become and made other missteps that raised questions about its competence and candor during the crisis, according to a commission appointed by the president to investigate the disaster. . . . Among other things, the report says, the administration made erroneous early estimates of the spill’s size, and President Barack Obama’s senior energy adviser went on national TV and mischaracterized a government analysis by saying it showed most of the oil was ‘gone.’ The analysis actually said it could still be there.”
