Letter to the Editor

On Earth Day, in response to the March for Science, Trump said, “My administration is committed to advancing scientific research that leads to a better understanding of our environment and of environmental risks, As we do so, we should remember that rigorous science depends not on ideology, but on a spirit of honest inquiry and robust debate.”

That’s is a welcome response, but the real test is if you actually fund science or not. I say, put your money where your mouth is. Funding science can indeed help America become great and create jobs and a better life for everyone. Science can settle the climate change debate and prove if it’s real or just some liberal fraud. Many of our greatest scientific advancements that cure cancer come from funding research.

So I’m hoping this isn’t just an attempt to just say the right thing and that you actually realize funding science is objectively a good idea. Science is the study of Reality and we want to make Reality our friend.
