A Vote for Science
Continuing with Elles’s election theme, I thought I’d let you all know about the Vote for Science Campaign (if you didn’t already know about it). I haven’t had a chance to watch all of the videos yet, but so far I’ve noticed a bit of a endorsement theme, which is not surprising, given the respective campaigns attitudes towards science. If you haven’t seen them yet, I’d also suggest reading the candidates answers to “the top 14 science questions facing America.”
For a multitude of reasons, including the current state of the economy and the war in Iraq, this is one of the most important presidential elections we have had in a while. Science and technology policy in America is another one of those reasons. So when I vote for Barack Obama on Tuesday, I’m glad to know that I’m also voting for science.
