Antioch College Professor Kim Landsbergen was recently quoted in American Geophysical Union journal Earth & Space Science News (Eos) on Trump’s proposed budget, and cuts to the National Science Foundation (NSF). An excerpt follows, or click here to read the full article “Trump Budget Would Set National Science Foundation Back a Decade” by Randy Showstack:
The budget cuts to NSF are the research and development “equivalent of eating intellectual seed corn: shortsighted and self-destructive,” Kim Landsbergen, associate professor of biology and environmental science at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, told Eos. “American investment in science and discovery has been the engine of our success since this country began,” Landsbergen said.
Kim is a dedicated advocate for environmental justice, and she shares that commitment and enthusiasm with the Antioch College community and beyond. Read more about Kim, her passion for science, and her reasons for participating in April’s March for Science here.
