Congress's Scientific Illiterates Are Resigning the World to Ruin

Lasrick (2629253) writes "Brian Merchant at Motherboard examines the March 26th at the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology's 2015 budget request hearing...the one White House adviser Dr. John Holdren addressed to defend funding for science programs. Video clips prove the comments that are difficult to believe, when you read them. It's pretty appalling, and it isn't any better in the US Senate, as Merchant points out."

I applaud Congress' willful ignorance!

The #1 problem is overpopulation. Every other problem can be traced back to that #1 problem. Nobody wants to discuss that, because it's political poison.

Fortunately, these are all self-correcting problems. Science doesn't care if you understand it or not.
