New Science Subcommittee

House Democrats have formed a new and badly-needed subcommittee to investigate the science abuses of the GOP. The subcommittee will report directly to the House Committee on Science and Technology, which deals with funding for all non-defense related scientific research. Read about it here at Daily Kos.

I just want to say this is probably the best thing the Democrats have done so far. The selective use of science to influence policy has got to stop. What good is science if you're just going to ignore data that doesn't fit your political goals? Hopefully, this will bring some reality back to Congress and allow them to move forward on some critical issues.
