This week, the Fish and Wildlife Service announced that it will review eight decisions on endangered species made under the direction of Julie MacDonald. MacDonald resigned from the agency in May amid charges that she tampered with the science behind decisions regarding the amount of protection several species deserved under the Endangered Species Act. We'll talk about the review, and other potential instances of politics mingling with scientific decisions. We'll talk with journalist Daniel Greenberg about science and politics, and whether they've ever really been separate.
