Local Professor Resorts to Marginalizing Critics Over Costly Research
November 17, 2014
Pacific University Professor, David Scholnick, will be remembered as the marine biologist who fashioned a shrimp treadmill all in the name of science. While the treadmill was a very small part of his research, no one can claim the research he conducted cost a small amount.
In fact, one might even question his claim that he spent $3 million since his research was actually a segment of a a larger project funded by The National Science Foundation for $426,000.
It can be argued most average taxpayers appreciate science and the creativity needed to conduct experiments to achieve accurate results. Those same taxpayers appreciate honesty and fiscal responsibility in conducting science.
