More on Trump and science

January 2, 2017 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 95, ISSUE 1

I’ve read Ms. Rita Hessley’s letter on page 5 in the Dec. 12/19, 2016, issue advocating “a strong and unrelenting pushback” to the “powerful members of science-focused congressional funding committees and putative presidential advisers [who] are unabashedly facts-denying, science-denying, evidence-denying, and of inquiry-free mindlessness.” I also read that she does “not mean angry outbursts of vacuous rhetoric.”

I am so confused.

Dec. 12/19, 2016, page 8:In the science news story about fluorinated azides, the reaction scheme depicts one starting reagent as C8H17Si(CH3)3; the molecule should have been fluorinated, C8F17Si(CH3)3.

Dec. 12/19, 2016, page 26:The Year in Review article on liquid metal research incorrectly described work from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, on stretchable devices embedded in gloves to detect strain. The devices were actually printed on polymeric skin patches.

Is this an accusation of Hessley of "vacuous rhetoric"? I would disagree since that rhetoric is coming from several of the President-Elect's selections for advisors and cabinet heads.
