Quote of the day

In another court victory for California’s effort to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles, a federal judge in Fresno threw out a lawsuit filed by the big automakers. (See story in the Sacramento Bee or LA Times.) The best quote on the matter comes from David Bookbinder of the Sierra club, after noting that the automakers keep losing in court, but will probably still file an appeal:

Sooner or later they’re going to have to stop throwing lawyers at the problem and start hiring engineers.

Damn straight.

    Science Magazine has an article about an new report by the Urban Institute studying the weaknesses of America’s science and engineering (S&E) infrastructure. Basically, they find that the problem is demand side, not supply side. To quote

    “‘a weakening demand, a comparative decline in S&E wages, and market signals to students about low relative wages in S&E occupations’ are discouraging able Americans from pursing scientific and technical careers.”
