Science & Technology
The Science & Technology Blog was created as an interactive and timely educational tool that gives you the freedom to publish content on our website. The intent is for you to effectively comment on the topic and provide accurate and factual information to assist our membership in recognizing and resolving issues in government and policy. Your participation with an accurate, appropriate and quality post will help us implement your ideas into our Classrooms, our Facebook Teams and our Advocacy Groups. You are welcome to join in the dialog.
The Citizens Policy Foundation believes that we all have a part to play in promoting both science and technology to advance towards the 22nd century. One of the most important challenges is climate change, a defining challenge of our time. The best science tells us that without ambitious, immediate action across our economy to cut carbon pollution and other greenhouse gases, all of these impacts will be far worse in the future. We cannot leave our children a planet that has been profoundly damaged.
Another important concern is electricity from clean energy sources within a decade, with half a billion solar panels installed within four years and enough renewable energy to power every home in the country – this takes technology. Our commitment to meeting the climate challenge must also be reflected in the infrastructure investments we make which includes creating good-paying middle class jobs that cannot be outsourced.
You can contribute to this important membership segment of the Citizens Policy Foundation by joining the Science Technology Team (STT) on our Facebook page. Our aim is to provide training in research, education and action, by providing internet forums to communicate information about national, regional, and local activities as well as opportunities set policy, communicates that policy, and actively hear from and interact with elected leaders.
