As president, Barack Obama promised to change “the posture of our federal government from being one of the most anti-science administrations in American history to one that embraces science and technology.” To publicly guarantee that, the White House issued a science integrity memorandum in 2009 pledging, “Political officials should not suppress or alter scientific or technological findings and conclusions.”
