Scientists and Engineers for America

There's a great new netroots organization starting up - Scientists and Engineers for America (SEA), a group of 5000 (at last count and growing quickly) folks whose vision is:

. . . a future where wise science and technology policy can help every American live in a safe and clean environment, enjoy quality health and education, and benefit from a strong system of national defense.  SEA is the only national organization dedicated exclusively to electing leaders who share this vision.

They believe in good government, open debate, competent leadership, and political participation. They also have a blog. A quick perusal of the blog confirms they are focused on bringing reality into public policy on such issues as stem cell research, Plan B, rational pollution standards and in general ensuring that public policy is based on sound science. What a concept!

I would guess that an organization like this would come to have a large NW component. Check it out.

I signed up the instant I saw something about it, a bit over three weeks ago. And at least one of the people to whom I forwarded information has also joined.
