“Editorial cartoons can be funny. Political interference in science is not.”
Vote here for your favourite political cartoon about the state of science in politics (in the USA – but they’ll accept Canadian votes). Although the Obama presidency seems to moving in the right direction, Dubya did a lot of damage. The Union of Concerned Scientists (USA branch) is trying to raise awareness of the issues by running a Science Idol runoff for the political cartoon that makes the most hay of the sorry state of science in politics.
Voting ends 11:59pm, August 12th. So vote soon. And maybe buy a 2010 calendar with the finalist cartoons too.
