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.

That is right Science should be handled by scientists, but that would leave without job to the lobbyists, politicians and all that people that we can rightfully call leeches.
