How to Make the World Safe for Science

Over at the Intersection’s new digs, Sheril has posted a rather long list of fellowship programs for people interested in science policy. Sponsors include government agencies, private universities, professional societies, and private foundations, and cover pretty much every branch of science. If you’d like to take a look inside the sausage factory and spend some time trying to help make better science policies, check out the list.

Sadly, the list doesn’t seem to include any of the programs Chris Mooney called for, where science-friendly billionaires donate money to support people to become great tv debaters and appear on news shows to counter pseudo-science. Which is, of course, why Chris was calling for those.

If there are any billionaires out there reading this, please consider it.
