What Future Awaits The Science Department Under Trump Administration?
When it comes to science, the Trump campaign's most notable statement so far may have come from space policy adviser Robert Walker, he was quoted to have said that the president elect expects cuts, if not an outright end, to new environmental-science research at NASA. He has recently revealed that Mr. Trump's decision will solely be based upon solid science, not politicized science.
The Future Of Science Under The Incoming Administration
According to reports released by Tucson, in terms of science, Walker, who also happens to be a former congressman and chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, also referred to NASA's earth science program as something that is politically correct environmental monitoring. He claimed that under the new administration, it will allegedly focus on "deep space achievements," which he apparently deems not PC, and move NASA's earth science missions to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Furthermore, as per The Washington Post, it was found that Donald Trump's transition team has already issued a list of 74 questions for the Energy Department, asking agency officials to identify which employees and contractors have worked on forging an international climate pact as well as domestic efforts to cut the nation's carbon output. Authorities have revealed that these questionnaires allegedly requests for for a list of those individuals who have been actively participating in various international climate talks over the past five years and "which programs within DOE are essential to meeting the goals of President Obama's Climate Action Plan."
Meanwhile, in one of his statements, Yale professor Dan Kahan has further explained that when areas of science become politicized, it can erode trust in scientists. The Yale professor claims that studies show political affiliation has a major influence on whether people trust scientists on climate change, evolution and nuclear power. Hence, it is believed that these types of prejudices shouldn't affect science funding.
