Science Debate 2008: over 800 million media impressions!

And the web site rose into the top 1/4 of 1% of most visited sites on the internet.

In a post election letter to nearly 40,000 supporters of elevating science in the elections, Science Debate CEO Shawn Otto highlighted several pivotal successes and addressed the need for further action. I intended to sum them up and report on them here but it’s nearly impossible to improve upon Shawn’s letter.

The only bit of new news I can add, not included in Shawn’s letter,  is this: Germany, the Netherlands and South Africa are taking the Science Debate international.
