Saving Science

A Trump administration could be devastating for the future of science, argues veteran journalist and science proponent Dan Rather. For that reason, he writes, “[W]e need to radically rethink how the press, scientists and politicians place science in the national discourse.”
Rather suggests that scientists—instead of recoiling from Trump’s evident anti-science stance on a number of issues, including climate change—should engage with the incoming administration and discuss the biggest issues. Rather also argues that the media must do a better job of communicating scientific information, finding ways to emphasize the field’s ability to awe, inspire and improve society.
