On Science, Obama Puts His Mouth Where His Money Is

In addition to ending a ban on stem cell research funding, President Barack Obama issued a potentially landmark memo Monday declaring a new era of "scientific integrity" across government. In no uncertain terms, Obama signaled that the federal government would be guided by science, not the other way around. In offering a repudiation of the previous administration, he also promised a new era of transparency. "Political officials should not suppress or alter scientific or technological findings and conclusions," Obama wrote in an official memorandum. "If scientific and technological information is developed and used by the federal government, it should ordinarily be made available to the public." (This is a highly edited version of the full article. Go to the link above for the full article)

"Political officials should not suppress or alter scientific or technological findings and conclusions," ........ that's the bit I liked  :-D

I see the postives this can bring, as well as the possible negatives.

It'll be interesting to see how this decision will turn out in the long run.
