Not long ago I wrote about the Science Debate web site: Obama Gets an A in Science. McCain Says His Dog Ate His Homework where a grassroots effort grew into a broad-based movement involving nearly all of the nation’s major scientific research institutions and many of its major research universities to get the presidential contestants to answer a series of questions on science policy.
The 34,000 questions submitted by those who joined Science Debate were pared down to 14 and submitted to both candidates. Obama promptly answered the questions, while McCain promised that he would at some future date. McCain has finally answered the questions. Now Science Debate is asking people to read, comment on and grade the candidates’ answers.
Below is a screenshot of the Science Debate web site with question number 2 on Climate Science, the candidates answers, and the grading choices. You can read the candidate’s answers, leave comments, and grade their answers by clicking here.
