Battle of the Reports May 8, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in politics, science, Uncategorized.
With all the talk by the White house and others about increasing funding for science I'm surprised that every scientific discipline and sub-discipline hasn't released a report detailing why they are in trouble and how easy it would be to fix the problem with just a little $$ thrown into the mix. NASA is a current poster-boy for this:
"There is a mismatch between what NASA has been assigned to do and the resources with which it has been provided," said Lennard A. Fisk, chairman of the council's Space Studies Board, which wrote the report at the request of Congress.
(from a NYTimes article). All of these requests will collide in congress. I'd hate to be the people that have to sort them out. I hope a bunch of people with science background will be called on to help!
