The Intersection

Apparently it’s going to be Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory director Steve Chu. I heartily applaud the pick. It’s especially noteworthy that Chu has been a big proponent of action on global warming and clean energy.

Here’s Chu endorsing ScienceDebate2008:

    …and an NCSE Steve!

    What’s this?

    Filling government positions based on knowledge, experience and general competence relevant to the position rather than friendship and political favor?

    It’s an outrage. An absolute outrage. I want my vote back.

    Definitely a good choice. And he may make some valuable policy recommendations for science education. Also, it’s always a plus point when people start thinking about scientists as something else than nerds.
