I was listening yesterday to an interview with Madeleine Albright, former secretary of state, on KGNU, an online radio station based in Colorado.
While plugging her new book, she said that the job of secretary of state is more complex than when she had it. The reason? The position now requires more science savvy: the next secretary of state, she said is going to have to know about climate change, energy and public health.
So it’s not just a bunch of geeks thinking all this science stuff is getting more important. So-and yes I keep bringing this up-Madame Secretary, are you prepared to add your name to a call for a Science Debate?
