Daniel is a member of TAMEST, an association of Nobelists and members of NAS/IOM/NAE. Our statement is irreconcilable with the amendments offered.
Science is awesome, and Texas has a lot to offer, he points out. We’re trying to recruit top people. S&W are understood as code-words, which will spook good scientists.
Various discussion of S&W, etc. McLeroy doesn’t seem to be reiterating his anti-NAS rhetoric.
He’s defending the “analyze and evaluate” language, making clear that it doesn’t allow one-sided indoctrination, but neither does it require presenting bogus silliness just to fulfill a requirement of “weaknesses.”
Returns to praising Texas science.
McLeroy: I like NAS.“I appreciate what you guys say, I just disagree.”
