Greetings from New Mexico, where I selflessly rise early to share a couple of items on the fight-to-save-honest-science front:
At Daily Kos, DarkSyde has an interview with Representative Brad Miller (D-NC) about his efforts to ferret out instances of the overt politicization of science within the administration (as we mentioned before). He wants to gather enough evidence to hold an investigation by the House Science Committee.
Phil Plait points us to Defend Science, a group that is holding protests and circulating a petition decrying attacks on objective scientific thinking within the U.S. I personally wasn't that fond of the way the petition itself was written -- a little too overheated, with a lot of capital letters -- but it's absolutely a worthy cause, and I am happy to go along.
