in an earlier post i mentioned a grass roots effort that seems to be growing roots quickly, sciencedebate 2008. it is getting all kinds of press and discussion, which is excellent. the presidential candidates have now been invited to a debate specifically about science and technology, and it is scheduled three days before the pennsylvania primary, on april 18. read their latest press release at this site: http://www.sciencedebate2008.com/www/index.php?id=21. consider adding your name to those interested in a debate on this topic.
quoted from one of the organizers of the debate, “Most of the major policy challenges the next president will face, from climate chance to jobs and economic competitiveness to healthcare to the health of the oceans, center on science and technology.”
these are exciting times. have your voice heard on topics you care about!
