CONTACT: Shawn Otto | Shawn@ScienceDebate.org
SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 — President Barack Obama and his challenger Governor Mitt Romney have answered the Top American Science Questions. Their answers can be compared at http://www.sciencedebate.org/debate12/.
The questions focus on fourteen key policy issues that, while among the most important, usually get short shrift on the campaign trail. They include the candidates views of climate change, vaccinations, food safety, energy, education, space, and several other politically charged science issues.Notable highlights include a shift in Romney's policy toward climate change away from his more recent position of “My view is we don’t know what’s causing climate change on this planet...” back toward his view in June of 2011 when announcing his run for president. However Romney's ideas about what to do about the problem are not clear. They contrast with Obama's, who says he has specifics plans and is taking specific steps such as doubling fuel economy standards, but who was unable to get a cap-and-trade bill through congress.
