Science is society's best friend, government's best friend, and civilization's best friend. Decisions should be based on evidence, not wishful thinking.

Will we ignore science or create a new life paradigm? This is the challenge of history. Science is the future of mankind.

Rejecting science is rejecting democracy. Science has always received bipartisan support. Without critical funding, we will lose the scientists of tomorrow.

Flint is what happens when we dismiss science and people. Science holds a key for our future and can't be ignored. Humans are changing the earth. Never have we needed science more. Objective reality is upended by ideological fixation.

The Clean Air act was passed in the 1970s while the auto industry said it was impossible. On the earth that we share, the birds are our messengers. Science shows the way forward to a decentralized and decarbonized future.
