Obama’s science adviser starts job

Abstract:
John Holdren became the president's science adviser as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. He has advocated sharp government action on climate change policy and is a former president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the nation's largest science organization.

In a statement issued Friday, Holdren said he was gratified that the recently approved economic stimulus package recognized the importance of supporting innovation in biotechnology, nanotechnology, information technology, renewable energy and the development of more efficient vehicles and buildings. He noted that a portion of the recovery package was designated for high-risk, high-reward research — "the kind that, when successful, proves truly transformative."
