Popular Science reports on who will lead us into our bold and bright future:
Lamar Smith was not very popular with the Internet a while back. The GOP congressman from Texas sponsored the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), which, you may recall, was not well-loved by much of the Internet. He also doesn’t believe global warming is man-made.
But now Smith is being recommended by his party to chair the Science, Space, and Technology committee, and he’ll probably end up with the job. This may be slightly controversial.
