    Eric Lander: Biden elevates White House science post to Cabinet level - CNNPolitics

    I’m currently listening to President elect Biden giving a speech about his new science advisers and how much attention the new White House will pay to science in the coming years. As a part of that for the first time in US history the science position of the White House will be given cabinet level authority.

    It’s like we’ve been trying to read in the dark for the last four years and somebody is finally turning the lights on. Dawn has finally come to the United States of America.

    A shrewd move by Biden. What is sorely needed is a reinstatement of respect for evidence and rationality. This will help a bit.

    How should we compare this cabinet position to other positions? Is it going to be like having a Royal Society or ... or what?

    What an interesting twelve years have led up to this. Bar chart! Bar chart!
