Politics + Science Addendum

The Union of Concerned Scientists has published a guide that serves as a good counterpoint to an earlier post of mine about the ugly interaction between politics and science. The only problem is that the examples are U.S.-centric and post-2001 so it's a little lopsided (i.e. the current American bureaucracy is not the only one to ever push an agenda off on its varied scientific regulatory agencies, and the U.S. doesn't have the market on perverting science for political ends.)

Anyway, it provides an ugly glimpse into the way the world works.
