Board member Lovejoy urges respect for science in New York Times op-ed


“Let Science Set the Facts,” reads WHRC board member Thomas Lovejoy’s op-ed in the New York Times. “It is time to restore the role of science to a respected place and reserve debate for understanding the implications of scientific results, and therefore appropriate policy to address the challenges and opportunities revealed by science. Not to do so would be tantamount to a toreador turning his back on a raging bull.”
