Energy Department Scientists Barred From Attending Nuclear Power Conference

What happened: The Trump administration prevented more than two dozen US scientists from attending a key international meeting on nuclear reactors.

Why it matters: Restricting staff attendance at events that are pertinent to its mission doesn't help the agency fulfill that mission. It also sends a message to the larger global community that scientific leadership is not a priority for the Trump administration.
