My blogroll complies with Canadian Content laws, and one of my Canuckistani compatriots is the Real Interrobang, who alternates between posting dispatches from Whitebreadville and aggregating quotes from the blogs and websites she frequents. If you're not checking out her "Live Journal", you're missing out on some great material.
Her most recent post involves a disturbing trend in the Harper Administration- a full-on War on Science, likened to a book burning, on behalf of the fossil fuel industry.
Book burnings have taken place throughout history, motivated by religious fanaticism, overly aggressive pastoralists, and the like. To think that modern multinational corporations, in cahoots with the democratically elected government of a civilized country, are engaged in the wholesale destruction of scientific research in order to obfuscate the environmental damage wreaked by their industry in the interest of short-term profits is monstrous.
Get the word out, this attack on science needs to be brought to the world's attention.
