'We Are at a Crisis Point' Warns New Report Exposing 'Science Under Siege' From the Trump Administration

Science from a sharpie is only one idjit’s idea.

Luckily it is a wide world.

A report from the BBC just out tells us of the largest ever scientific expedition to the Arctic Sea Ice. A German icebreaker, the Polarstern, is freezing in as we write this for a year long free ride across the top of the world. The science suite is multi-disciplinary and multi-country, apparently, and I think Common Dreams should make a point of keeping us appraised of the new findings which will surely be found.

I realize the obvious interest in goings on in the Beltway, but either you take the climate crisis seriously or you do not. Let’s have at least bi-monthly reports on the findings of the “MOSAIC” expedition if you please?

Do you think this a good idea @PonyBoy ?

As for the science denial in the United States - we know this, and it will not end any time soon, so lets look elsewhere and stop the navel-gazing !
