      Science and Technology Policymaking: A Primer Ap – RL Scientific and technical knowledge and guidance influences not just policy related to science and technology, but also many of today’s public policies as policymakers seek knowledge to enhance the quality of their decisions.   In a world in which the White House spent two full years without a science adviser, and the U.S. Congress has many members who still refuse to embrace the scientific consensus on climate change, this is no trivial thing. It seems important for scientists (and others who care about it) to tell the story of science, while not trying to hide its.

      Scientific Pretense vs. Democracy relies heavily on scientific technical expertise to function [public officials] need to rely on the best scientific knowledge available and proceed on the.   If you are a scientist, teacher and student engaged in science history, or anyone interested in learning how science has been supported by federal leadership, you’ll appreciate The National Science Foundation’s Science: The Endless Frontier” as a useful historical resource for today’s scientific community.

    Strong leadership is needed to adopt and promote an aggressive, long-term agenda to strengthen forensic science, the report says. To achieve this end, the report strongly urges Congress to establish a new, independent National Institute of Forensic Science to lead research efforts, establish and enforce standards for forensic science professionals and laboratories, and oversee education standards.   The U.S. justified this move through the wholesale rejection of scientific evidence — a strategy made overt when the White House largely downplayed the fact that a .
