The Left’s War on Science, again

From The Washington Post: A surgeon general’s report in 2006 that called on Americans to help tackle global health problems has been kept from the public by a Bush political appointee without any background or expertise in medicine or public health, chiefly because the report did not promote the administration’s policy accomplishments, according to current …

The power of prayer and the liberal war on science

And we thought liberals wanted to keep science and religion separate. From The NY Times: Prayers offered by strangers had no effect on the recovery of people who were undergoing heart surgery, a large and long-awaited study has found.

The left’s war on science

Ever since George W. Bush became president, some have been complaining about “the politicization of science” or the idea that the current administration is undermining, ignoring, and stifling science in the United States.
