The New York Times with a story about the 4,000+ scientists, including 48 Nobel Prize winners who disagree with the Bush Administration's use of science:
...In the past, individual scientists and science organizations have occasionally piped up to oppose specific federal policies such as Ronald Reagan's Star Wars missile defense plan. But this is the first time that a broad spectrum of the scientific community has expressed opposition to a president's overall science policy...
There are several examples in the article of specific cases where the current Administration has misused or completely altered findings by the science world.
And let's not forget about an issue that did not appear in the aformentioned article. There was the little thing that had to do with the EPA declaring the air in Lower Manhattan safe one week after 9/11/01 when reliable information on air quality was not available. Investigations into this were quashed by the Congress.
UPDATE: This site gives One Thousand Reasons why voting for Bush is a bad idea. Complete with supporting links. (It's a book too!)
