    and mid-level policy makers must be lazy if they rely on Think Tanks rather than fairly easy-to-access science reports.  If each Representative and Senator does not have at least five science experts on his/her staff, he or she cannot make policy on many of the issues of our modern age.  Technology, medicine, the environment: all require in-depth knowledge of the sciences for judgement calls.  

    This website is skeptical of climate science skeptics.

    •  Science experts??? You are kidding - yourself! (0+ / 0-)

      The closest most politicians have to "science experts" is the people they hire from think tanks.  Politicians and their aides leave to become higher paid think tank experts and consultants and lobbyists.  It's a revolving door.
