Science has been trying to do its job, the trouble is that science got shut
out by politics.

The fact that someone claims to be a "scientist" doesn't make him one. This
is something that politicians need to understand. It would help if they
didn't call what they do "political science" because doing so gives them a
warped perspective on the nature of science.
