Enough Already with the President's Destructive War on Science

Thumbnail image for donald-2075124_1920.pngWho is Donald Trump trying to impress with his demands to slash spending on scientists and scientific research, and his twitter-blizzard attacks on established science (climate change, as but one of many examples)?

In the environmental field in which I work, the results of research studies done by federally-funded scientists is why we know the dangers to human health of the chemicals-like TCE, PCE and vinyl chloride-- which plants and factories have recklessly dumped and buried throughout their history. People are alive today because of the discoveries made by these scientists.

It's also why, as the article below argues, we have a chance to actually decrease massive federal spending on disease (like the $279 billion we spend annually on caring for patients with Alzheimer's disease)...because the scientists at the National Institutes of Health are hard at work to find a cure. There is no point in stripping America of its miraculous ability to lead the world in improving life and health. And there is no point in threatening to do so, either.
