The US primary season is upon us and the question occurs what would the bunnies ask the clowns? And indeed this time there are a number of clowns although the density function appears sadly to have moved completely to the right. YMMV
For a long time, an organization Science Debate has been trying to shame the gatekeepers into asking a question or three about science, tech, health and environmental issues in their candidate debates, In 2008 and 2012, they got written answers but ones straight from the elephant or donkey's mouth would be more interesting and less structured.
Key questions of the future are based on an understanding of these issues, and even the kids want to know.
Eli's POV is that he doesn't want candidates to debate science, tech, health and environmental issues, he wants them to outline the policies they would institute and how those policies fit in with the scientific consensus in each of those areas. If they don't agree with the consensus, and they should be aware of it, why not? Who would be their scientific advisers and why do they trust them?
Never mind, Eli inquires what would you ask. You can sign the Science Debate petition and show them your question.
