DOI announces new science policy, but how it would change current research unclear

Fans and critics of the Interior Department's new science policy are still holding their breath over what it will actually change.

The arguments over the new order, titled "Promoting Open Science," echo the fight at EPA to curtail research that doesn't publish its raw data. The political left says Interior's new policy threatens to politicize and complicate even routine science, such as counting animal populations, while the right says it will restore trust to processes that have historically tilted against industry — namely, endangered species listings.
