The post below is written for the upcoming Spanish translation of The Book of Why, which was announced today. It expresses my firm belief that the current data fitting direction taken by Science is temporary (read my lips!), that the future of Science lies in causal data interpretation and that we should prepare ourselves for the backlash swing.Much has been said about how ill prepared our health care system was in coping with catastrophic outbreaks like COVID 19.

So it is not hard to imagine such elements bringing trouble to Joe Biden’s new Democratic national administration even as the Republicans at last may be relieved of the daily embarrassments of Trump’s demeanor, especially since, out of office, much civil and even criminal litigation may keep him busy. Additionally, Republicans in Washington may rediscover that being in the minority makes taking potshots easy, far easier than governing..
