Ron Arnold writes in the Washington Examiner:
Who owns taxpayer-funded science? From the way many scientists behave, it’s not the taxpayers.
Many scientific studies funded by federal agencies – through grants, contracts, or cooperative agreements, particularly those used to justify the most horrendous regulations – hide the guts of the science.
What the scientists keep secret is the raw data they obtain in the real world and the methods they use to interpret it, as if those were personal possessions.
