Standing Up for Science

An article called “Science 2006” (SEED Magazine, November 2006) discusses a group called Science and Engineers for America that is making important headway in Washington. Please check it out. This kind of advocacy in Washington is mission critical.

Important federal agencies responsible for global ocean health and human welfare (e.g. NOAA and NASA) are currently sitting in budgetary limbo under a continuing resolution because Congress scheduled wartime funding first. It doesn’t seem fair to spend so much on governments overseas, and so little on our own.
