I’m a Scientist.
I believe in facts based on strong, peer-reviewed observations.
I believe in evolution. I can perform experiments to show you why.
I believe you need to have your kids vaccinated. I can fill you in on the statistics and research that show there is no link to autism.
I believe that we are doing our best to treat difficult diseases. I can explain to you why there is no conspiracy to hide cures.
I believe that our climate is changing, and we have caused it. Work with me, and I can help you understand the data.
I believe that our environment is important. I can teach you why biodiversity is essential.
I believe that science should be taught in schools, the way it was intended. I can show you how our students are behind in global science education rankings.
I don’t believe in alternative facts.
I don’t believe that science is the enemy.
I do believe that a country without a strong focus on science, technology, engineering and math can’t ever be great again.
Work with me and my colleagues. Let’s have an open-minded discussion around science, and let our politicians know that facts and observations are important to our future as a nation.
