On Earth Day, a necessary defense of science from Trump - Sac Bee editorial board.
Quote:
Years before the first Earth Day in 1970, California made it a priority to reduce carbon smog particles in the air, preserve public lands for future generations and clean pollutants from waterways.

Never was there a serious doubt that science would present the path to get us there.

Decades later, it should scare every Californian – and every American – that scientists by the thousands feel compelled to spend today demonstrating and making speeches just to convince the federal government to base policy and funding decisions on scientific fact, not ideological fiction.
