A Vote For Science

In the latest issue of Science, an article on grass-roots efforts by scientists in the last weeks before the election brought up a startling point, that there have been a lot of letters to the Editor and OpEds published in newspapers either endorsing Obama or pointing out the errors of the McCain campaign rhetoric on science. What is absolutely amazing, is that there has not been a single letter or OpEd by a scientist endorsing McCain. Not ONE? Here is a partial list of OpEds and letters that have appeared. This is by no means a comprehensive list. In fact, these are almost all in battleground states. This is a really unusual thing to happen in an election and should be appreciated for sheer volume, not to mention the amount of thoughtful time put into writing these things.

    Don’t forget Nature endorsing a candidate for the first time in so long, nobody there remembers the last time it happened.

    I think that Obama is a one great leader of the nation who tried his best to get the nation of US together on every step.
