“...science and reason matter.” ---B. Obama, 2017.
As a community, we vote in high %. Let’s be active, speak up, support science, and let legislators know that we vote as much as any group.

And it gets worse: https://www.axios.com/trumpworld-prepares-to-hammer-the-epa-2209021483.html “...The document goes on to recommend what can be done to "improve the use of science by EPA... EPA should not be funding scientific research…” I guess that makes it easier to use alternate facts.

I don’t care who the president or administration is - this isn’t about them or who you voted for or against. It’s about science and its role in setting government policy. We need to do what we can as a community to educate the public on the critical contributions of agencies like EPA, OSHA (that one should be even more fun…) etc. and that these need to be based on science, not a special interest agenda.
