Got scientists? Call PMO.
@TheSilverWatch you mean liquid feces?
Why are there so many scientists in the CBC building?
Don’t let science wreak havoc on your agenda!
So what specific case study was this joke based upon? Very true throughout
economic and political history though.
The joke is based on many case studies of Canadaian scientists not being
allowed to talk to media regarding their research due to changes the Harper
government has made. Nature, one of the largerst scientific journals, has
recently released an article telling the Canadian government to stop
“muzzling its scientists.”
BBC and the Globe and Mail have some good articles about this issue
Fits well with the climate change “debate:” attack the scientists.
Are you a Canadian with an *infestation of scientists*? Call the Prime
Minister’s Office pest control division. [Hat tip to +Gordon Grieder for
the link, and Rick Mercer for being awesome.]
Way to go Rick!!! The recent AAAS Annual Meeting in Vancouver featured an
excellent symposium with Andrew Weaver, Margaret Munro and a representative
from the Union of Concerned Scientists. The new NOAA Scientific Integrity
Policy and the consultation process around its development provide an
excellent model of how things could be.
How to get rid of pesky scientists
PMO = Prime Minister’s Office
Saw this the other day on the Rick Mercer Report…Muzzling scientists is
actually a VERY real problem with our federal government. Genius spoof by
this only helps to make keep people keep on thinking that the only thing
scientist do is mix coloured substances. sorry for my english.

@alexgarmo: It’s a JOKE for crying out loud. It doesn’t “help to make
people” think anything about what scientists do. It’s to make people think
about the Harperites muzzling of scientists.
Thats why they showed multiple different scientific fields: “food
inspection, environmental, fisheries and ocean & many more!” dumb.
I think I should start wearing goggles in the lab now…
How have I not seen this until now! This has become even more poignant
these last couple months
Have you got scientists?
RMR: PMO Pest Control
I wonder how many calls from creationist good ol’ Rick has received?
