Where Congress stands on science


The Scientists and Engineers for America have a new wiki based Science, Health and Related Policies (SHARP) Network

that tracks where elected officials and candidates stand on science. Click on your state or enter your zip code to find the SHARP profile for your representatives. On their page, you can find their views on critical science and health issues and even add more information about their positions.


I hope they’ll want to figure out how to link to and work with the folks at Congresspedia. Also, I’m wondering how much sharing of information is going on with the sites they link to? It seems like they are asking volunteers to be redundant in their efforts rather than coordinating things to provide the public with the greatest amount of information.

And speaking of Congresspedia, the parent site has a new coal portal. I’ve only got a minute, so I’ll add it later.
