Carl Sagan Bemoans Loss of OTA

Rajiv Narayan|Upworthy

Narayan of Upworthy found a Charlie Rose interview  with Carl Sagan from 1966 that  “…gave me the goosebumps,” he said.  In the interview Carl Sagan asks “Who is making all the decisions about science and technology that are going to determine the type of future that our children are going to live in?  Just some members of Congress? But there’s no more than a handful of Members of  Congress with any background in science  at all!”

Sagan bemoans  the  loss of an important source of bi-partisan, competent advice for Congress in science and technology-  the Office of Technology Assessment.
