Barack Obama Puts Faith in Virtues of Science

"We will restore science to its rightful place and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's quality and lower its costs. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age," President Barack Obama pledged yesterday during his inaugural address.
“Our challenges may be new, the instruments with which we meet them may be new, but those values upon which our success depends, honesty and hard work, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism—these things are old. These things are true," he said. "They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history. What is demanded then is a return to these truths.”
