UCS, science, and the next president

Frank,

One more presidential issue to think about.

Rich (Dr. Richard Kerbavaz)



Support Science Debate 2008!

Dear Laura,


Today, a group of prominent scientists, organized by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), released a new statement calling for the next president to put an end to political interference in science and create changes that would allow federal science to flourish. Recognizing that good federal policy depends on reliable and robust scientific work, UCS and the scientists are urging the next administration to guarantee basic scientific freedoms for government scientists.

As a concerned activist, you have an important role to play in calling on all presidential candidates to defend science from political interference. UCS is working with all three National Academies, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and scores of universities nationwide on an initiative, called Science Debate 2008, to hold a presidential science policy debate in April in Philadelphia before the Pennsylvania primary. The debate will give candidates a forum to show the public how they plan to use science to inform their policies. The candidates have been invited to attend-now, we need to urge them to participate in the debate. Add your name to the list of Science Debate 2008 supporters today.

Sincerely,
Michael Halpern
National Field Organizer
Scientific Integrity Program



Dear presidential candidate,

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

We would like to hear how, as president, you plan to defend science from political interference, and how you plan to use science to inform your policies.

We call on you to participate in Science Debate 2008 in Philadelphia on April 18.

What's At Stake:

On February 14, 2008, the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) released a new statement calling for the next president and Congress to reclaim federal government science for the public good. Signed by prominent scientists with significant federal government experience whose work helped start the UCS Scientific Integrity Program, the statement recognizes the value of strong federal science programs to meet challenges like global warming, energy consumption, and growing competitiveness abroad.

The new statement calls for the government to create the conditions necessary for federal scientists to be able to do their jobs. Federal scientists should have the freedom to publicly communicate their findings; publish their work; disclose misrepresentation, censorship and other abuses of science; and have their technical work evaluated by peers-all without fear of retribution.

as president, i will liberate science...as well as art, media, education, and other aspects of our culture...from the distorting, limiting dictatorship of corporate search for huge profits. science should be the exploring of all possibilities and not the search for the next cash cow!

In Freedom,
Frank Moore
