    Americans hate science

    If you look at which undergrad institutions produce the most U.S.-trained PhD scientists, three of the top four schools are in Asia (two in China, one in Korea). I'm not sure this is such a bad thing by itself, but it speaks volumes about popular culture here vs. Asia.

    A new study has found that the most likely undergraduate alma mater for those who earned a Ph.D. in 2006 from a U.S. university was Tsinghua University. Peking University, its neighbor in the Chinese capital, ranks second. Between 2004 and 2006, those two schools overtook the University of California, Berkeley, as the most fertile training ground for U.S. Ph.D.s (see graph). South Korea's Seoul National University occupies fourth place behind Berkeley, followed by Cornell University and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
