The National Academies of Science is one of the most prestigious scientific organizations in the world. As their "About the NAS" page states:

The National Academies perform an unparalleled public service by bringing together committees of experts in all areas of scientific and technological endeavor. These experts serve pro bono to address critical national issues and give advice to the federal government and the public.

That's something I think we can all stand behind! We were contacted by the NAS asking if we would publicize a survey they are hosting about the public's concerns over science. This survey will literally take you one minute to take, and will help guide them in creating educational materials. The deadline is January 16, so please take a moment  to give them your opinion. Once completed you can see the results so far, and compare your concerns with those of other folks in the reality-based community.
