Barack Obama and Bill Nye talk science

Of course, if Barack Obama supports science, Republicans will oppose it.

But Republicans started opposing science before they ever knew Obama existed - it's why so very few scientists identify as Republican these days - and it's good to have a president who, while not a scientist himself, is smart enough to accept scientific research when there's a worldwide consensus.

Better yet, it's good to have a president who's willing to spend political capital in the support of science. After all, everything he does comes in the face of intense opposition. So it all has a price.
