The goal of the new Center for Science and Democracy is to restore" the essential role of science, evidence-based knowledge, and constructive debate in the U.S. policymaking process, using three core strategies:"
- Restoring public confidence in, and support for, the use of independent science in public policy making;
- Helping decision makers, citizens and journalists distinguish evidence-based information from propaganda;
- Working with scientists to help them become more effective communicators and policy contributors.
