Debates Worth Having
Here's an idea! Let's have a Presidential debate that really means something and is more than just a joint press conference. The brain child of Chris Mooney and Matthew Chapman, here is the intent:
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.Go to the Science Debate 2008 site and register your support for political campaigns that depend more on substance than on celebrity endorsements.
