Statement on scientific integrity in policy-making
This is one of my (thankfully, for some) rare forays into political issues on this blog. If you're a practicing scientist, engineer, or just a concerned citizen, please go here, read the statement, and sign the petition if you think it's an important issue. I know not everyone agrees with the Union of Concerned Scientists on every issue, but I think they're right about this one: science should speak for itself in policy-making, not be censored, manipulated, or heavily edited for political ends, by either party.
