Globalization of Science

Landlocked, over at Infinitesimal Perturbations, did a nice post on the Globalization of Science. He raises some good points, including the fact that almost every region of the world is rising in the science world, and the U.S. is about the only country where science is on the decline.
Drastic growth in scientific research is occurring all over the planet, particularly in Asia, but South America, as well (and maybe even Africa someday?). As scientific research has become a globalized effort, it is progressing more rapidly than at any other time in history. Overall, it has never been a more exciting time to do science...except in the case of America where scientific research is on a steady decline.
