Rattling the Presidential Science Debate Cage

By way of Pharyngula

A Call for a Presidential Debate on Science and Technology

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, the undersigned, call for a public debate in which the U.S. presidential candidates share their views on the issues of The Environment, Medicine and Health, and Science and Technology Policy.

I’m not big on jumping on bandwagons, but I’ll rattle that cage since I agree with Pharyngula that it would be great “to see a debate on any subject where the candidates had to deal with issues of some substance.”
