Instead of thinking about whether to vote Democratic or Republican in the upcoming U.S. election, think about voting to protect science instead of destroying it. The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) also keeps a tracker of the administration’s attacks on science. Alarmingly, many of the attacks involve the most immediate and long-term threats to people on earth: the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change. In 2016 National Park Service leaders deleted language about climate change in a report done by an agency scientist, Maria Caffrey. Most senators and representatives do prize facts and evidence-based thinking, yet too many of them remain silent about Trump’s abuse of science.
