Science in the New Administration

During the Fall, I wrote a number of posts (starting with this one) arguing that science policy in the US was in poor shape, and that Obama looked like the more likely of the candidates to turn that around.

While I focused more on support for basic science, I was certainly concerned about how policy-makers use science to support their policy decisions. So far, all signs from the not-yet-nascent Obama administration continue to be promising.
