How politics will spin science How politics will spin science Stem cells Alan Boyle, Science Editor, NBC News Nov. 3, 2010 at 7:46 PM ET Jeff Miller / UW-Madison file / An instructur holds up a culture dish containing human embryonic stem cells during a lab course at the University of Wisconsin. Political shifts will produce a fresh set of skirmishes over science issues ranging from stem cells to spaceflight. "I'm not looking forward to seeing that," said Chris Mooney, who wrote "The Republican War on Science" in 2005. Here's a quick rundown on the top issues: Climate change and energy policy In the wake of his Election Day "shellacking," even President Barack Obama acknowledged that his controversial plan to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions through a carbon trading system would have to be put on hold. Another way to skin the climate-change cat would be for the Environmental Protection Agency to take a more active role in regulating carbon emissions -- and back in June, the Senate turned back an effort to clamp down on the EPA's efforts in that area.
Space Politics » Democratic membership of the House Science Committee (Updated) Space Politics » Democratic membership of the House Science Committee (Updated) By Jeff Foust on 2011 January 25 at 7:10 am ET Although there’s been no formal release from the Democratic caucus of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, the Democratic members of the committee were formally named last week in a House resolution: Jerry Costello (IL) Lynn Woolsey (CA) Zoe Lofgren (CA) David Wu (OR) Brad Miller (NC) Daniel Lipinski (IL) Gabrielle Giffords (AZ) Donna Edwards (MD) Marcia Fudge (OH) Ben Lujan (NM) Paul Tonko (NY) Jerry McNerney (CA) John Sarbanes (MD) Terri Sewell (AL) Frederica Wilson (FL) Hansen Clarke (MI) Many of the Democrats named served on the committee in the previous Congress, although there are several new members as well.

After presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s speech that featured the goal of a permanent base on the Moon by 2020, he was criticized by some of his fellow Republican candidates, among others, for proposing what they believe to be an expensive venture. Mitt Romney’s campaign issued a statement criticizing the plan, which it argued could cost “up to $500 billion”; Rick Santorum ran a radio ad affixing the same price tag to the plan. But just how much would a lunar base cost? In an effort to answer that and other questions about the fiscal policies of the candidates, The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget issued a report this week estimating the costs of some of those policies. On page 17, it looks at Gingrich’s plan to “Establish a Moon Base and Manned Mission to Mars”. There are some flaws in the report’s analysis. Yet another question is whether a lunar base development plan that a President Gingrich might seek funding for would be anything like the older Constellation plans.

International Politics: Overview International Politics: Overview Governments not only interact with the people they rule but also with other governments—to trade, to share ideas, to work together to solve global problems, and to resolve disputes. Political scientists have been analyzing international relations— relations between states—for centuries, but never more so than during the twentieth century, as scholars tried to explain the reasons for and explore the aftermath of World Wars I and II and the Cold War that followed. Although numerous international agreements and institutions exist to facilitate smooth relations among the nearly 200 countries in the world, international politics can still be extremely violent. Even though people have fought one another for millennia, political scientists still do not know exactly what causes people and states to go to war, start revolutions, or commit acts of terrorism.

Often, we may try to stay up-to-date with politics by reading an article online (probably from the headlines of Yahoo), watch “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, or “The Rachael Maddow Show on MSNBC. In 2010, a Pew Research Center Poll showed that less than 60% of Americans could correctly answer questions about American politics.
