alert Trump’s war on scientific research has hit 'crisis point': Study
An American think-tank has warned the treatment of science by the administration of US President Trump has hit a “crisis point,” where research findings are manipulated for political gain.

Special interests are given improper influence and scientists are targeted for ideological reasons, according to a report released on Thursday by the National Task Force on Rule of Law and Democracy.

Every US president over the past two decades has, to some degree, undermined research and injected politics into science, according to the taskforce, formed under the Brennan Center for Justice at the NYU School of Law.

However, the mistreatment of science under recent administrations has now reached a dangerous level under Trump. The study calls for stringent new standards to enshrine scientific independence.

“Now, we are at a crisis point, with almost weekly violations of previously respected safeguards,” the report said.

The report was led by Preet Bharara, the former US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Christine Todd Whitman, who led the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) during the administration of former President George W. Bush.
