There’s a new organization out there: Scientists and Engineers for America. They’re a group who are trying to actively support political candidates who will give credence to scientific evidence when making policy decisions.

Those of us who are not wilfully ignorant recognize that the current administration has a tendency to pick and chose (and outright supress) scientific evidence when it is politically inconvenient. This is bad for our country. Science is not perfect but it gives us the best process for discovering ‘truth’ that there is, and we should use it when it is available.

So go over to their site. Check them out. And join.

And to whet your appetite, here’s Stephen Colbert.
