More #SciCuts stuff

The Science is Vital campaign, which aims to halt cuts to the science budget now has a new website, including links to petitions and other such stuff.

Meanwhile a poll currently being carried out in the Economist has been looking at whether or not readers of that magazine favour protecting the science budget. The results from the first day show readers backed science by 70% to 30% in favour of not protecting the area. This ratio has improved in favour of science in the days since then and presently looks closer to 74% to 26%. The ongoing debate is here.

A similar poll a similar result in Scientific American. Details here.
