A Biden administration official whose job it is to ensure the “integrity” of government science has an integrity issue of her own. Last month, the National Academy of Sciences suspended an environmental scientist Jane Luebchenco for violating fundamental principles of scientific integrity. Despite this disciplinary action from one of the world’s most prestigious scientific organizations — and her own admission of guilt — Ms. Lubchenco continues to lead the White House Scientific Integrity Task Force.
The Biden administration created the task force to conduct “a thorough review of the effectiveness of the federal agency’s policies on scientific integrity, with the goal of ensuring a trustworthy science system.” If this vital mission is to be taken seriously, the task force must earn the trust of the public. That means holding yourself to the same standards that apply to ordinary researchers.
