Program #2 begins with a Panel Discussion on Scientific Integrity: “This panel looks at the assault on scientific integrity by the Bush administration over the past seven years. Many federal scientists charge that the White House is suppressing science, or creating its own, in order to serve ideological and theological ends. When it comes to science, critics say, the Bush administration has, in Chairman Mao’s term, put ‘politics in command.’ Where has the scientific community truly lost ground, and in which pressing areas? What are some examples? Have scientists permanently lost opportunities? How will a new administration (either McCain or Obama) advance scientific freedoms, if at all? Guests for this segment include: Francesca Grifo, Director of the Scientific Integrity Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, and Rick Piltz, Director of Climate Science Watch.”
