In the very first post of the Science forum, Gerroh noted the frequent underfunding of scientific endeavors, and how often programs and agencies are outright eliminated. However, he failed to make the true severity of the problem clear. So in this thread, we shall demonstrate how serious the issue actually is.

This seems like as good a place to start as any.

^ lol at that one. The scientific cuts really start at around the same time the world went into a global recession. AND half the stuff on the list doesn't even have anything to do with hating science. "Blocks asbestos from hazardous chemicals list" for example.

We pulled out of the Kyoto Accord because the USA refused to join it. Why should Canada cripple its economyto go "green" while the US just pollutes as much as it wants? Hell, except for Canada, not a single country in North or South america had a binding target to meet, so canada left too.

Most of the other stuff seems legit, although I'd say its more because of our crap governmental systems than anything else.
