The nominations of John Holdren and Jane Lubchenco have now been approved. Holdren will be Obama's science advisor, and Lubchenco will be the head of NOAA.
This is refreshing. These science picks are not bible thumpers, not members of political think tanks, and not members of industry advocacy groups. They are REAL SCIENTISTS. Holdren is a bona fide plasma physicist, and Lubchenco is marine biologist.
These are great picks, and shows that Obama is going to listen to science, and not fairy tales. Too bad we can't say his economic picks are as good, but at least we now have some real science back in the government.
So, as Obama takes America to hell in a handbasket, economically speaking, we will now at least have a scientific explanation for it.
