Bush blind to science

The PD has an article about the Bush administration's dismissal of science and an upcoming forum on the subject. According to the PD, Lawrence Krauss, chairman of the physics department at Case Western Reserve University observed:

This level of political interference in the scientific advisory process, right from the White House in some cases, is unprecedented. In many cases they've shown an unwillingness to let facts get in the way of what they thought was right.

Krauss has arranged for three Nobel laureates to speak in Cleveland Friday, Oct. 15 at a public seminar he helped organize called "The Bush Administration and Scientific Integrity." The forum will be held at Case's Strossacker Auditorium starting at 4:00 PM.

The speakers include Peter Agre, Professor of Biological Chemistry, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Nobel Laureate, Chemistry 2003; Sidney Altman, Sterling Professor of Biology and Chemistry, Yale University, Nobel Laureate,Chemistry 1989; and Leon Lederman, Director, Emeritus, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Nobel Laureate, Physics 1988.
