And Our New Age of Non-Political Science Dawns...

James Hansen, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, writes in The Observer this past Sunday:

The trains carrying coal to power plants are death trains. Coal-fired power plants are factories of death.
Isn't it nice that under the Obama administration, scientists like Dr. Hansen will no longer be "silenced"? And that science (and scientists) will no longer be politicized and, instead, will deal only in hard facts and hard data?
