    West Virginia University professor James E. Smith argues that, without a basic understanding of the scientific process that has been so successful and useful in getting us to this point in our collective histories, we can hardly expect to see a better future if similar men and women are not at the helm. Maybe a little less pandering and a lot more proper decision-making based on scientific facts will make the governance process more attractive to professionals for whom a future legacy of successful advancements is a valued outcome – and thus better for our future.
