3. Very well said

It still amazes me that the anti-science people don't see the irony of themselves using the interweb/net to spread their views. Or of watching T.V. , driving their cars, using their air conditioning etc. while they deny the basic premises of knowledge.

[font size=3]One of America’s most influential and popular scientists has issued a stark warning over what he termed the Trump administration’s rejection of science - saying it is a threat to the country’s “informed democracy”.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, host of the StarTalk podcast and TV show and director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, said when he grew up, the US had relied on science to drive its innovation. But no longer.

“People have lost the ability to judge what is true and what is not, what is reliable, what is not reliable,” he says in a video posted on Facebook. “That’s not the country I remember growing up in. I don’t remember any other time where people were standing in denial of what science was.”



Mr Tyson’s comments came as many thousands of scientists and their supporters prepare to hold marches to highlight what they say is the Trump administration’s decision to reject science on issues ranging from climate change to public safety.
