Nobel laureates bash Bush

Washington Times 9/28/04

WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- A group of U.S. Nobel Prize winners for science and leaders in engineering is campaigning against President Bush in key battleground states.

The group calls itself Scientists and Engineers for Change and includes Douglas Osheroff, winner of the 1996 Nobel Prize in physics and Vint Cerf, chairman of ICANN and the principal architect of the Internet.

The group said its members are concerned the management of science and engineering are being drowned out in the election debate and says it opposes the Bush administration's science and technology policies. Its members have launched a speaking tour in the battleground states of Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Oregon, Virginia and Wisconsin.
