Can the position of science in Australia sink much lower?

Savage spending cuts, government hostility to science-based issues, no science minister (first time since 1940!), climate skeptics placed in senior advisory positions.....

When are scientists going to march on Parliament House to demand respect, representation and adequate funding?

Have we as science communicators been so ineffective that no-one cares?

Neat article in The Guardian:
