Barack Obama’s administration to value science and facts

After 8 years of having religious ideology destroying Federal agencies and policies dependent on rational scientific thought and methods, President-elect Barack Obama said exactly what I wanted to hear.

“My administration will value science,” Obama said, in what sounded like a pointed reference to his predecessor. “We will make decisions based on facts.”

Obama went on to describe combating global warming as “a leading priority of my presidency and a defining test of our time.”

He appointed Steven Chu, a physics Nobel laureate, is his new energy secretary. Carol Browner, the former head of the Environmental Protection Agency, is the head of a new policy council to coordinate climate, environment and energy issues. And Lisa Jackson, the chief of staff for New Jersey’s governor, is head of the EPA.

Obama: My Administration Will Value “Science” And “Facts”

I am starting to feel better about the upcoming Obama years.

Yea Science!
