  • RE: Science Must Be More Responsible

    Due to the shameless deception by the President of the United States and the interference, censorship, and misinformation injected into nearly all US Departments and agencies by the Trump administration, the American people can no longer trust the health and scientific recommendations of their own government.

    It is time for the AAAS, the National Academy of sciences and other scientific organizations to take a more active role in making scientific/medical recommendations and assessments to the public.

    As scientists with knowledge and expertise, we have a greater responsibility than other citizens to inform the public and tell the truth, based on the best information available. Publishing a paper or writing an editorial is not enough. The societies must hold press conferences and become involved, or history will not look kindly upon us.

    We are rapidly sliding into fascism and the end of the American democratic system, and we scientists are failing the world and the future. The scientific societies provide a platform to present the truth to the people.

    Competing Interests: None declared.
