The World Is Drying Up

The White House's proposed "skinny" budget cuts nearly $5 billion from the Department of Agriculture, but there's nothing to worry about because the head of its science department soon will be a blogger and talk show host from Iowa.


It's a tired old lament, but a deadly serious one. The climate crisis is here, now, and, despite what the glib youngsters at The National Review may believe, the sea and the sun don't care how cleverly you can turn a phrase. This crisis is coming soon to a neighborhood near you. Luckily, of course, as CBS News informs us, we have the proper scientific institutions to provide the research to cope with it, right?



Is this on?

On Friday afternoon, Eleanor Celeste, the assistant director for biomedical and forensic sciences at the OSTP, tweeted, "Science division out. Mic drop" before leaving the office for the last time.
Dead cows. We're all dead cows walking.
