The Audacity of Science

President Barack Obama’s inaugural promise to “restore science to its rightful place…” sounds like good news. This statement was needed because scientific integrity had been placed well behind politics in analysis, not only in areas such as climate change and public health issues, but also particularly in analysis of the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001.

Scientists who speak out publicly have been the main source of credible information on what science really portrays. The press in general selectively shows scientific results, often with errors in their stories because of their own scientific misunderstandings. Knowing their limitations, they often tend to shy away from controversial issues like the scientific facts and evidence of the mass murders in the World Trade Center. So when the government promotes ideas and conclusions that are not scientifically accurate, scientists provide the principal credible counter to these errors. Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth detail how the physics in the NIST Committee analysis of what happened in the World Trade Center collapses is wrong.

Our government must correct all of the errors in their multiple studies of the  destruction of these buildings. To do that, scientific integrity must be restored! So the question comes back to President Barack Obama, his administration, YOU, and even to the Netroots Nation organizers to actively support his promise to “restore science to its rightful place.” Will this commitment allow for replacing those studies by correct science? Does it mean those 45 government reports with scientific errors put by the NIST Committee will be replaced with new reports that present correctly both the scientific facts and all the significant scientific evidence, allowing for scientific evaluation of what they may show?
