Science Debate 2008

Paul McJones drew my attention to the Science Debate 2008 page, which is a call for a Presidential debate on science and technology:
Given the many urgent scientific and technological challenges facing America and the rest of the world, the increasing need for accurate scientific information in political decision making, and the vital role scientific innovation plays in spurring economic growth and competitiveness, we call for a public debate in which the U.S. presidential candidates share their views on the issues of The Environment, Health and Medicine, and Science and Technology Policy.
The list of backers is impressive (even without counting me :-). There also appears to be some connection to National Public Radio.
