Now, we don’t know who will win next year’s presidential election. But the odds are that one of these years the world’s greatest nation will find itself ruled by a party that is aggressively anti-science, indeed anti-knowledge. And, in a time of severe challenges — environmental, economic, and more — that’s a terrifying prospect.

Well, we´ve had this for eight years up to 2009. And yes, it was truly terrifying for all concerned. The political right really is playing with fire in the US.
