Obama Silences Science: Is This the Change We Were Promised?

by William Yeatman

President Barack Obama rode into the White House promising open and honest government. So why did his administration bully a career official at the Environmental Protection Agency into silence?

But the EPA would not consider Carlin’s report.

by Jack O'Connor

Much ink has been spilled over the claim that the US is “falling behind” in broadband. . .We did some digging, and if we are in a ranking crisis, it’s even broader than we feared. The US ranks 12th in the world in per capita pork consumption, behind such unlikely competitors as Spain, Sweden, and Canada. We’re 12th and 13th in coffee and beer drinking, trailing Northern Europe by embarrassing margins.

Episode 49: Censoring Science at the EPA

We begin with discussion of the abominable Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill, the scandal of suppressed science at the EPA and some liberating technology news.

As always, we wrap the program up with a little forward-looking Olympic News.
