Chris Mooney and Sheril Kirshenbaum of The Intersection have joined forces with Matthew Chapman have put together a call to have a 2008 Presidential debate devoted to science.


Here is their statement:

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.

Just click here to get involved. The only downside I can see is that the Republican candidate will express skepticism about evolution, global warming, and heliocentrism, and the world's image of the U.S. will plummet even further.
