Science And The City

From the Washington Post:

NEW YORK, May 28 — Some of the nation’s leading scientists, including Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s top science adviser, today sharply criticized the diminished role of science in the United States and the shortage of federal funding for research, even as science becomes increasingly important to combating problems such as climate change and the global food shortage.

Sounds familiar…ScienceDebate2008 anyone?

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg opened the city’s science summit yesterday, calling science “just as exciting, just as cool, just as cutting-edge” as the new film “Sex and the City.”

Totally.

    If he liked science wouldn’t he be comparing it to Iron Man or some other movie that doesn’t suck? :)

    Mayor Bloomberg, of my favorite New York City, is an a astute observer of things real and necessary. His comment on science is ‘right on’.

    But there’s absolutely nothing cool or cutting-edge about SATC…

    It would be nice if Ms. Rice were asked to comment on topics like ID and global warming denial which seem to be supported by her boss.
