Publicly-funded scientists must be free to communicate openly their research, data, and interpretations of their work. Public outreach, education, and accessibility of scientific knowledge should be encouraged.
Public policy should be guided by evidence-based scientific research, local scientific knowledge, and mainstream scientific consensus.
A well-informed community is essential to a free and successful society. Support initiatives to promote broad public knowledge and discussion of scientific work
