An awesome takedown of a few bad habits that conservatives are attached to. #1: Not taking into account ROI when it comes to investing in scientific research. #2: Non-scientists trying to dictate what should and shouldn’t be studied. Zack Kopplin launched a petition to encourage scientific investment: “When we fund scientific research, we get a return on our investment. Scholars from the Federal Reserve estimated the return on scientific investment as ‘ranging from 30% to over 100%.’ Every penny we invest in science will pay itself off.”
The full story on Stephen Moore, Rush Limbaugh, and the right-wing war on science.
