48 Nobel Prize winners slam Bush, back Kerry

Forty-eight Nobel laureates denounced President Bush (news - web sites)
on Monday for "compromising our future" when it comes to scientific
research and the environment, and said Sen. John Kerry (news - web
sites) "will restore science to its appropriate place in government and
bring it back into the White House."

The star-studded scientific endorsement for Kerry came on a day when
the presumptive Democratic nominee stood in Civic Center Park and told
several hundred rain-soaked voters that the way to build the economy is
to invest in science, technology and higher education.

"We need a president who will once again embrace our tradition of
looking toward the future and new discoveries with hope based on
scientific facts, not fear," said Kerry, vowing not to let "ideology and
fear stand in the way."

Many scientists have complained that the Bush administration has filled
science advisory panels with conservative ideologues rather than
individuals with sterling scientific credentials.

In an open letter to the American public, Nobel Prize winners including
Caltech President David Baltimore and cancer researcher Harold Varmus
said "the Bush administration has ignored unbiased scientific advice in
the policy-making that is so important to our collective welfare."

Burton Richter, who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1976 and helped
organize the letter of support for Kerry, said laureates don't usually
take such a public stand on non-scientific matters. "It's unusual, and I
hope you take this as a sign of how seriously all of us think the errors
of our present course are," said Richter.

Among the others signing the letter were physicists James Cronin of the
University of Chicago and Leon Lederman, former director of Fermilab.

Kerry's focus on science, and his push for stem cell research, comes
shortly after the death of former President Ronald Reagan (news - web
sites), who had Alzheimer's disease (news - web sites). Stem cell
research is seen by some as a way of spurring discoveries that could
cure Alzheimer's and other diseases.

And Kerry praised Nancy Reagan, noting that "her pleas for stem cell
research joined the pleas of millions across this country and reinforces
in all of us the need to tear down every wall today that keeps us from
finding the cures of tomorrow."

As it has for weeks, the Bush campaign accused Kerry of waging the
politics of pessimism.

"Only John Kerry would declare the country to be in scientific decline
on a day when the country's first privately funded space trip is
successfully completed," said Bush campaign spokesman Steve Schmidt.
"America is the world leader in patents, research and development and
Nobel Prizes, and the president's budget raises federal research and
development funding to $132 billion for 2005, a 44 percent increase
since taking office."

Kerry officials, however, accused Bush of taking an anti-science stance.
They said he has proposed cutting most research and development in
non-defense programs, and reducing funding for the National Science
Foundation (news - web sites) and the Environmental Protection Agency
(news - web sites)'s research budget.

Great post Ronnie.

I think it clearly shows what American voters that support medical
research to find cures and new treatments for serious diseases need to
do in November.

(Not that you had any doubt what Laurie and I will be doing.)

It seems like we've had a fairly extreme snap to the right and I do
believe we need to come back to center on science. Thanks for this
article--I will share it.

Hej :) Chaussures Tod s Pas Cher Vente . Hvis det er striber du plejer at få farvet, så kan du sagtens fortsætte med det. Frisøren finder blot de totter som ikke har påsat hår og farver dem. Men hvis du doudoune moncler vanoise Chaussures Tod s Pas Cher Vente doudoune moncler vanoise skal have lavet en? helfarve, så kan det også lade sig gøre. Dog kan det i nogle tilfælde vise sig, at keratinen bliver blød og hår tendens til at falde af. Men vi har flere kunder som farver udgroning uden problem :). Mvh. Cate, My Extensions
