Complaints from scientists

James Hansen, head of the Goddard Institute of Space Studies at NASA, is one of those who condemn the current administration for, in Dr. Hensen’s case, censoring, or for budget cuts or for other malfeasance.

Dr. Sanity, an ex NASA scientist, has a bit more balanced explanation of what is really happening.

The fact is that government agencies are paranoid about employees speaking politics and policy. They have been this way since the seventies. It is the comrades in ideology of those scientists who are complaining who created the circumstances that constrain their political expression as government employees.
