Why aren’t there laws that governments must listen to the scientific community, and take their advice on environmental issues?

    Well, first of all, the government would have to make the law. In general, governments won’t pass laws that limit their own decision-making abilities. Second, the scientific community does not have a very strong lobbying presence; it certainly pales in comparison to many American industries. In general, most politicians will listen to the science behind the issues, but it won’t always influence their decisions. Money nearly always gets in the way, as it does with most environmental issues.
