Scientists and Engineers for Change is a new political committee that believes science and technology are crucial building blocks for American prosperity that have not be adequately managed in the last four years. We dispatch leading scientists and engineers to college campuses and other places they can talk about embryonic stem cell research, global climate change and the other science and technology issues that the next president will have to address. Here are some ways you can help us:
- Give us your e-mail address (in the box to your left) so that we can stay in touch with you about our activities.
- Cut-and-paste the following message into an e-mail and send it to 50 friends: "Please join me in signing up for Scientists and Engineers for Change at https://scientistsandengineersforchange.org. It is a new political committee that believes research has been undermined and scientific integrity compromised by the Bush Administration. I'm going to give them a few dollars to reach more people and I hope you will, too."
