ABSTRACT
This editorial urges that U.S. scientists must not look to merely fiscally profit from the long-term research investments that will be implemented under the administration of president-elect Barack Obama. The scientists must be eager to transition away from U.S. President George W. Bush's administration. Issues discussed include nuclear non-proliferation, greenhouse gas reduction, and emissions regulation.
