Right on! The attack on science, reason and now even facts is political and mostly partisan. When mercenary occupations like gun manufacture, lawyers and other industry groups can have lobbying groups, why can’t scientists march on the street? When war has been declared on science, why can’t we take up arms to defend it? Scientists who shy away from standing up and being counted, who shy away from making their scientifically based opinions public, who shy away from being “partisan” (like the silly AAAS calls out) are just abdicating their responsibilities.
To paraphrase Gloria Steinem, “The scientific is political!”.
