I’m Back. Monday Links

The last few months have been incredibly busy (hopefully, results should start appearing in print over the next few months). I’ll start writing again now.

A few links on recent(ish) anti-science victories in Europe:

  1. Philae went all the way to a comet, then quickly died because Europeans are afraid of “radiation”. The Americans would still be getting data from that probe as it would be nuclear powered (using a very safe type of nuclear fuel).
  2. Another victory from a coalition of environmental groups, including Greenpeace: The European Commission scrapped the position of scientific advisor. The environmentalists called the position of science advisor corporate lobbying!

American bonus: Anti-GMO activists take vitamins out of breakfast cereal.
