Why should congressmen be allowed on Environment or Science committees, to make important decisions for ALL OF US, if they don't even know basic Science? Why would we hire Flunk-Outs to be on our Intelligence Committees? Making apparently (foolish) decisions about going to war, or when to bring the troops back home. Making crucial decisions about Solar or Atomic Power plants, and how we protect our water supply? We ALL should demand that basic or advanced scientific education is necessary for any member of Congress to run for election. Here in the 21st century, we cannot afford to allow neanderthal intellects to determine our future. (Tea Party need not apply: )
