Politicians can't just "follow the science" (whatever that means when science gives varying answers)

Good point by Stanford's esteemed Professor of Medicine Dr. Jay Bhattacharya. The scientific process yields knowledge that informs the cost benefit analyses and policy decisions made by elected leaders. A simplistic "follow the science" doesn't cut it. Almost every issue studied by scientists has caveats and limitations. It is a tool, not a solution set.
