Another couple of weeks’ worth of stories about how science is faring under the Donald Trump regime. If I’m missing anything important, please let me know either in the comments or at my email jdupuis at yorku dot ca. If you want to use a non-work email for me, it’s dupuisj at gmail dot com.
The selections are by no means meant to represent a comprehensive account of everything written about science over the last couple of weeks. I’m aiming for something representative rather than complete or comprehensive. For example, there are probably hundreds of articles written about the Paris Climate Agreement over the past few weeks and I’ve only chosen a few for this list.
By the way, the idea that this long list of items is from just a little over two weeks is astounding to me. And by astounding, I mean terrifying.
