New group forms to help science-friendly candidates
Scientists and Engineers for America is a new group, just recently formed:
"to enter the political debate when the nation's leaders systematically ignore scientific evidence and analysis, put ideological interest ahead of scientific truths, suppress valid scientific evidence and harass and threaten scientists for speaking honestly about their research."
Some of the group's issues include: energy, the environment, health and education. The group's 2,500 members include 7 Nobel Laureate and many other well-known scientists whose scientific views have not been in line with those of the administration.
