Science Idol: The Scientific Integrity Editorial Cartoon Contest
“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.
