In Europe last week President Trump made it clear that he didn't believe in climate change, and has moved to cut America's spending on research in this area. The French, led by President Emmanuel Macron, are making it clear they not only believe in science, but that they stand ready to invest in climate change researchers who might find their way to France in the future.
The message below, directed at America's scientific community, is a powerful one, and is an example of how "brain drain" in America just might begin ...
The Jewish emigres who fled Nazi Germany literally revolutionized U.S. science and technology. These stories should serve as a lesson in what not do when it comes to science, and politics, in America.
This lesson, unfortunately, is lost on President Trump and our modern day Republican Party.
