The next president faces difficult, historic decisions in science and technology that will shape our country's future for decades to come.
That's why voters should support a bipartisan effort now gaining steam to hold a presidential science debate.
A grassroots group called Science Debate 2008 is pushing for a televised debate sometime after the Feb. 5 primaries to plumb the candidates' views on energy and the environment, technological and scientific innovation, and medicine.
I would add another topic of discussion there: "Should an elected official's religious views superseded established scientific understanding in decided public policies?"
That last one should ruffle a few feathers! :)
