2016 Presidential Science, Tech, Health, and Environmental Forum

What are the top science, tech, health, and environmental questions the candidates for president should answer?

INSTRUCTIONS:
A) Be sure to vote on existing questions.
B) Address your question to the candidates and ask about their policy positions. Don’t ask rhetorical questions. Ask your question in summary form (your “headline” question), then a new window will open up, where you should:
C) Provide more detail in a 2-part format:
1) Declarative statement (1-2 sentences max) describing the situation and context, followed by
2) Question (1 sentence) asking what they will do about it if elected.

FOLLOW THIS EXAMPLE FROM 2012:
What priority will you give to funding scientific research?
Federally funded research has helped to produce America’s major postwar economies and to ensure our national security, but today the UK, Singapore, China, and Korea are making competitive investments in research. Given that the next Congress will face spending constraints, what priority would you give to investment in research in your upcoming budgets?

A top science question the candidates for president should answer is:

  1. What role should the federal government take in ensuring that hydraulic fracturing for natural gas extraction (fracking) is regulated?

    In some cases fracking has damaged water supplies and created new hazards like earthquakes that increase risk and decrease resilience of American communities. Currently these are handled via city or state policy, but as the corporations that practice fracking and the need to ensure the basic safety needs of citizens often cross city and state lines, our president needs to be prepared to address fracking in a substantive way. Our nation's energy needs are undeniable, but so are the costs of ruined water supplies and emergency management that increase with inappropriate extraction of our natural gas resources.

    • How will 45th POTUS ban diesel & petrol vehicles and introduce 7th Gen Solar cell based TRAINS and Supercars.

      Develop 7th Solar compressed cells which would have a back up of Nuclear power cells and ban petrol+diesel cars on AMERICAN Roads by 2022.Also the same cells would power metro TRAINS+Aircrafts+Space Shuttles.

      • Selling Public Land/Resources to Big Corporate?

        Do you plan to stop selling Land owned by the American Public for Fossil Fuel extraction, Timber extraction, Mineral extraction, Water extraction and Commercial development?

        Or, Do you plan to continue selling off Public Land to Big Corporate so they can keep their Multi-Million dollar bonuses flowing at the American Public's expense?

        Do you intend to continue this massive transfer of Public Resources to the 0.1% income bracket, justifying it by a few thousand temporary jobs?

        Or, Do you intend to continue doing this to Payback Big Corporate for those Millions they are giving your campaign, that were Plundered from…
