ignorance of science

” . . .  we live in a world where ignorance of science and its methods is the surest, shortest road to national disaster. During the past half century every other nation has made great efforts to impart more knowledge to more young people. In the United States, professional educationists have chosen the opposite course.”

– from “Knowledge and Understanding” in Collected Essays (1958)

Twitter the site for Rouge Resistance


Twitter has fast become the site for Rouge Resistance in US government agencies.


Here is a list of all US Govts rogue Twitter accounts fighting #45 on his crackdown on science. From Core 77


There is no way to verify who is posting from each account; and because the larger agencies like NASA and the EPA have multiple rogue accounts, we have to follow, listen, see and thoughtfully decide for ourselves what is real and what is fake. 

Digital advocacy strategist and consultant Alice Stollmeyer, has dubbed this Twitter resistance movement “#twistance,”. She has compiled an exhaustive list of every agency she could find. Here’s the http://www.core77.com/posts/60230/Heres-a-List-of-All-the-US-Govts-Rogue-Twitter-Accounts-Fighting-Trumps-Crackdown-on-ScienceLIST:
