AN APPEAL FOR THE INTEGRITY OF SCIENCE AND PUBLIC POLICY

Dear Colleagues,

Concerned by an escalation of misuses and misrepresentations of science in public policies and regulations, a number of scientists have signed AN APPEAL FOR THE INTEGRITY OF SCIENCE AND PUBLIC POLICY to governments and legislators around the world, asking for the statutory positioning of the scientific method as the evidentiary guideline in the formulation of policies and regulations. The text of the appeal and the list of current signatories are attached, and we hope you will join us in confirming the evidence-based power of science, and its role in the rational and ethical integrity of public policies and regulations.

Please notify your agreement by sending your titles and affiliation coordinates to Ms. Hannelore Popa-Henning (popa-henning@toxi.uni-wuerzburg.de)
