At a time when scientific facts are frequently disputed for political reasons, the Department of Energy is updating its policy to ensure the "protection of scientific integrity." That quote comes from a Medium post by US Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz that lays out why we need accurate, unbiased science and three points for the department's policy going forward:
Energy Department scientists are able to express their opinions.
Energy Department scientists must get the opportunity to review Department statements about their work.
Energy Department officials should not and will not ask scientists to tailor their work to particular conclusions.
