Date: 23 August 2012 Time: 03:47 PM ET
A nonprofit organization is challenging political office hopefuls to debate 14 crucial science questions during the 2012 election.
ScienceDebate, sponsored in part by Scientific American, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Academy of Sciences, among other groups, is dedicated to promoting science and engineering policy. The group has collected thousands of suggested science questions for candidates and then worked with top science organizations to narrow them down to the most important issues facing the United States today.
