The “war on science” is over. Now what?

A nice piece at Slate about what’s next.

Scientists, with the support of the administration, should now be setting out to win over the hearts and minds of the American public, creating a stronger edifice of trust and understanding to help ensure that conflict doesn’t come raging back again. [slate]

    This article makes us scientists seem like some globally organized, possibly evil, organization. The real place where a love or hatred of science is formed is in middle school and high school. With computers being so pervasive nowadays it should be easy to get kids interested in science and technology. I think the real barrier is the amount of education that is required to really get involved in the scientific community. A student in the business school has a good opportunity of making a huge salary with just a BA.
