Sciencedebate 2008

Are you bothered by the total disregard for science shown by some US presidential candidates? Mike Huckabee does not heart evolution. Other candidates aren’t saying much. Would you like to see where the candidates stand on various science and technology issues?

Sheril and Chris at the Intersection have put together a campaign for a Science Debate amongst the presidential candidates in 2008. They have the support of many top notch scientists and science advocates. You too can sign on if you agree with the following statement:

Given the many urgent scientific and technological challenges facing America and the rest of the world, the increasing need for accurate scientific information in political decision making, and the vital role scientific innovation plays in spurring economic growth and competitiveness, we call for a public debate in which the U.S. presidential candidates share their views on the issues of The Environment, Health and Medicine, and Science and Technology Policy.
