  Journal of Translational Medicine | Full text | Why is public science education important?
For example, an understanding of the science of embryonic stem cell research is critically important to inform policymakers who are advocating or opposing this research; an understanding of climatology is essential to those concerned with regulation of fossil fuel consumption and energy policy; astronomy and cosmology must inform wise investment in space exploration.
It is left to each state to decide what science tests it will select for all its students [1]." History shows that, when pressured, science teachers adjust their curricula to ensure the best possible results on state tests [1].
Science education at all levels should focus on creating a society where well-educated adults are equipped to bring scientific thinking to bear on issues that affect them as citizens.

 CO2 Science
In the 24 March 2006 issue of Science, a number of commentaries heralded accelerating discharges of glacial ice from Greenland and Antarctica, while dispensing dire warnings of an imminent large, rapid and accelerating sea-level rise (Bindschadler, 2006; Joughin, 2006; Kerr, 2006; Kennedy and Hanson, 2006).
For the present and immediate future, therefore, we have no choice but to stick with what the existent data and analyses suggest, i.e., that cumulatively since the early 1990s, and conservatively (since the balance is likely still positive), there has been no net loss of mass from the Greenland ice sheet.
The set of Science papers and associated news reports also make much of recent ice discharges from Antarctica, particularly along the Antarctic Peninsula, which has warmed more than any other place on earth over the past fifty years.

 AAAS - AAAS News Release

Carey called on Shapley to prepare a report describing the federal budget process as it applies to research and development (RandD) and analyzing the RandD components of President Gerald Ford’s proposed fiscal year 1977 budget.
In the words of Carey, with whom Shapley had worked for many years at the Bureau of the Budget (BOB), the objectives of the report were “to try to make the budget process comprehensible” to scientists, to provide a “framework.
Although he was not widely known outside the federal government, Shapley played a central role in a number of critical developments shaping federal science policy.
