Political Science: Scientific Integrity Contest Winner Announced

The Union of Concerned Scientists has announced the winner of its Scientific Integrity Editorial Cartoon Contest, shown at the right. In announcing the winner, the organization stated:
Recent investigations and surveys show that political interference in science has harmed the ability of federal agencies to protect our health, safety, and environment. While guarding against last minute attacks from the outgoing administration, we are building a foundation to guide the next president in restoring scientific integrity to federal policy making. The next president and Congress must renew the independence of science at federal government agencies and create a thriving scientific enterprise.
