Federal DOE appropriations and science spending are struggling to maintain levels seen in the 1990's.
From Dr. Michio Kaku, posted on bigthink.com Aug. 6, 2011.
Here is a link to President Ronald Reagan’s April 2, 1988 radio address. It is a full-blown endorsement of the federal role in scientific research and of the need to increase spending on it. Leaving aside the detail, it could have been delivered by Barack Obama.
Dr. Michael S. Turner spoke today on "Science Friday". Nasa may be losing funding for the Webb telescope project.
This is a really interesting article on how difficult it is to communicate science. It is very in depth and has all sorts of embedded links. It demonstrates clearly what the science community has to overcome in order to move forward.
Great article on the innovation and where the U.S. stands globally.
This article lays out what we face in terms of cuts.
It's time to reinvest America. The economies of the future are at stake. Mort Kondrake talks about seed corn.
Cause for real alarm. This is what we are talking about. A full frontal assault on science funding and a budget cut back to FYI 2008 levels.
Everybody should understand this issue in it's complexity. AS Dr. Tyson put it, there has to be a landing space for students coming out of the pipeline for the pipeline to exist, it's not just an education issue. Mandatory reading for science advocates.
