More on Right-Wing Lysenkoism

Among the many horrors of the Bush administration, perhaps the most alarming and irrational is their willingness to spin the evidence to give it the apprearance of conformity with their political commitments. These Lysenkoist tendencies seem to be getting a good bit of attention of late. Here's an interesting piece from The Nation by Robert Kennedy Jr. via Far more importantly, here's the report "Scientific Integrity in Policymaking" by the Union of Concerned Scientists. The report is signed by 19 winners of the National Medal of Science, 20 Nobel Laureates, and 3 winners of the Crafoord Prize. CalPundit also has a post on the subject here.
