2008 Senate questionnaire by SEA & 18 science organizations


Scientists and Engineers for America (SEA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, educational organization. Our mission is to facilitate evidence-based decision making at all levels of government. Our programs include both a short-term focus on the 2008 national elections – through the SHARP Network (Science, Health and Related Policies) – and a long-term focus on building a more engaged and politically active scientific community – through SEA Chapters and the Campaign Education and Training program.

On June 18, 2008, SEA, along with seventeen other scientific organizations, came together to issue all the candidates for Congress seven questions on science, health, and technology issues. This is the first time that this consortium of science organizations, which includes the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Academy of Science, has come together as one voice to issue a candidate questionnaire. The question topics—climate change, health, water, energy, innovation, education, and research—address the important issues that affect Americans everyday.
