Where Dr. Jones looks at king🌽in the face, & shows one of my favorite graphs to debunk the "we-are-feeding-the-world" tale. The graph came out of ERS, btw, which is being dismantled for not telling fables & providing policy-relevant science. #ERS_strong

Critics of the moves at USDA, including @Ron_Wasserstein, exec director of the American Statistical Assoc, have questioned whether the employees actually will be replaced or if the change is a way to reduce the size of the office https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-moving-government-washington-things/story?id=64428637 … #ERS_Strong @CountOnStats

A senior NIFA scientist familiar with the grants, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid professional retaliation, confirmed that these grants are on hold and in danger of never being distributed. @bbguari https://www.washingtonpost.com/science/2019/07/18/many-usda-workers-quit-research-agencies-move-kansas-city-brain-drain-we-all-feared/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.0ce951a38b13 … #NIFA_Strong #ERS_Strong @CountOnStats

If the moves are worth making, they are worth making through a methodical process that provides Congress the time it needs for consideration & incorporates stakeholder & expert input.

losses among the more than 540 USDA research employees affected by the reassignment could result in a drain of institutional knowledge & talent at 2 agencies that either fund ag research across the nation or produce crucial reports https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/15/politics/usda-climate-research-kansas-city-sonny-perdue/index.html … #ERS_Strong #NIFA_Strong

Moving ERS and NIFA is a hasty solution in search of a nonexistent problem that wastes taxpayer money and will harm U.S. agriculture.

These putzes are doing it again. A functioning bureaucracy is critical to the long term viability of democracy, as is independent, fact based policy analysis. The intent is clearly to cow (!) and intimidate. #ERS_Strong #NIFA_Strong

A Trump administration decision to move researchers from the @USDA to the KC area is threatening to spark the flight of more than half of the staff selected to move, gutting the agency of its top scientific voices. @RebeccaBeitsch https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/453193-scientists-flee-usda-as-research-agencies-move-to-kansas-city-area … #ERS_Strong #NIFA_Strong

The search for ERS & NIFA offices in Kansas City has been delayed: “USDA’s mini-competition for the delineated area was unprecedented, ill-conceived, and unauthorized by statute and regulation.” #ERS_Strong #NIFA_Strong #datainfrastructure

We #CountOnStats for credible analyses and sound policy. That adherence to the scientific integrity in the face of incompatible policies may be the reason ERS suddenly finds itself in the Trump administration crosshairs. #ERS_Strong https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/opinion/columnists/2019/07/03/integrity-nonpartisan-data-farmers-policymakers-risk-usda-move/1639874001/ …

rebuilding expertise and productivity would be no easy job. These employees are overwhelmingly PhD holders. They are not local hires in the KC area. They are experts recruited in a national market.
