Obama makes a bold statement
and sends a clear message that the actions of his administration will be based on facts, not ideology!
With the nomination of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Chu for Energy secretary, President-elect Barack Obama made sure no one missed the message in the resume.
"His appointment should send a signal to all that my administration will value science," Obama said during a Chicago news conference Monday. "We will make decisions based on facts, and we understand that the facts demand bold action."
What does this mean for us? What does it mean for others?
Will research move forward finally?
Will decisions about LGBT people, like marriage equality, be based on the science instead of the religious dogma?
