Evolution Education and State Politics
Julie Palakovich Carr A new school year is starting, and if some state legislators have their way, evolution education will be marginalized in the curriculum. In spite of multiple court rulings prohibiting the teaching of creationism in public schools, some lawmakers continue to pursue legislative measures that would challenge the teaching of evolution and other "controversial" scientific subjects. In statehouses around the country, the 2017 legislative session saw a flurry of attacks on science education. Eleven measures that would undermine evolution education were introduced in legislatures in eight states. ...

Lawmakers, Scientists Divided on COMPETES
Legislation that would create a 2-year roadmap for basic research and science education is progressing through Congress, to the dismay of most of the research community. Hailed by supporters as a plan to advance innovation while cutting wasteful spending and denounced by opponents as political meddling in research, HR 1806, the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2015, has embedded science in populist politics. "Legislation that is supposed to maintain the nation's leadership on science and energy research is now being reauthorized in a manner that actively undermines our ability to do just that," wrote Andr...

Nitrogen Is a Neglected Threat to Biodiversity
Habitat destruction and the direct exploitation of species often occupy center stage in discussions of biodiversity perils. However, indirect harms, such as that posed by nitrogen pollution, remain underappreciated and poorly understood despite playing a key role in species declines. In an article for the journal BioScience, a team of environmental researchers led by Daniel Hernández of Carleton College, in Minnesota, outline the challenges associated with nitrogen. To better understand nitrogen-induced biodiversity imperilment, the authors surveyed 1400 species listed under the Endangered Species Act, finding a t...

Miller call attention to ecological disturbances that could affect hundreds of terrestrial and aquatic species, notably including the Mexican gray wolf and Sonoran pronghorn.

Germans Consider Speed Limit on Autobahn
BERLIN (AP) — A leaked proposal to impose universal speed limits on the Autobahn is causing outrage among car-loving Germans. The country's transport minister, Andreas Scheuer, has said the idea "goes against all common sense."

Germany is one of the few countries in the world that doesn't impose speed limits on its beloved Autobahn highways.
