This is Scientific American's 60-Second Science. I'm Adam Hinterthuer, Got a minute?

Hillary is undecided; Obama and McCain both passed. But the scientific community is committed to staging a candidates1’ debate about science and technology. They want a straight talk on political buzzwords like climate change and stem2 cells as well as less discussed issues like funding for basic research at the National Institutes of Health. What’s started as citizens worried about the US losing its edge is now a movement called Science Debate 2008. An article on the current issue of the journal3 Science claims that by 2010, 90% of the world’s scientists and engineers will live in Asia where research is well funded. The author say the US needs to keep up because science and engineering4 drove half of the America’s economic growth over the last 50 years. Science Debate 2008 had cancelled a debate before the upcoming Pennsylvania primaries because candidates want to commit. Now plans are already in the works5 for Oregon where primaries are set for May 20th. It’s proved the journal article says that scientists can be quickly organized when motivated. If only politicians share that motivation. 

 

Thanks for the minute for Scientific American's 60-Second Science. I'm Adam Hinterthuer.
