These scientists, including those at NOAA and the National Weather Service, frequently provide research that protects our lives, communities, economy, and security. Interference with their work can impact lives and property …

The case for investing in science: How you can make a difference

11 October 2011 You can hardly pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV nowadays without seeing a story on the impacts of the debt crisis in America (and around the world).
