      Election 2020: The Stakes for Science

      2020年大选:科学的赌注

      Election Day is November 3rd. In this week before the election, we’re rolling out a special series of short podcasts in which we’ll look at how the election could affect some major areas of science. To set up what you’ll hear the rest of the week, I spoke to Scientific American’s editor in chief Laura Helmuth.

      选举日是11月3日。在大选前的这一周,我们将推出一系列特别的短播客,在这些播客中,我们将看看选举将如何影响一些主要的科学领域。为了确定大家在本周余下的时间听到的内容,我采访了《科学美国人》的主编劳拉·赫尔穆斯。

      “There’s a lot to talk about. The election is almost upon us; people are voting already. And some of the biggest issues that will be decided by this election have to do with science and health and the environment and our future energy structure and climate change. And it’s an urgent time to talk about these subjects.”

      有很多可谈的。选举快到了:人们已经在投票了。这次选举将决定的一些重大问题与科学、健康、环境以及我们未来的能源结构和气候变化有关。现在是讨论这些问题的紧急时刻。”

      And we’re not endorsing your candidate in this case. We are just laying out the terms of what the stakes are for these scientific areas in this election.

      在这种情况下我们不会支持候选人。我们只是列出了这些科学领域在这次选举中的利害关系。

      “Absolutely. I mean, there are a lot of reasons to vote for one candidate or, for some people, the other. But really, if you’re interested in scientific subjects, there will be a lot of different directions the country will go in—one direction or the other—depending on this election. And we just want to lay out what the stakes are.”

      “当然。我的意思是,有很多理由去投票给一个候选人,或者,一些人,另一个人。但实际上,如果你对科学感兴趣,这个国家将会有很多不同的方向,一个方向或其他方向,这取决于这次选举。我们只是想摆明利害关系。”

      And what do we say to the inevitable audience member who just doesn’t want to hear about politics when they come to a science venue?

      当来到科学会场时,我们对那些不想听政治的观众说些什么呢?

      “That is a good question. And I think all of us right now, especially when there’s so much politics in the air, it’s really refreshing to come somewhere and to think about black holes or the age of the universe or how dinosaurs evolved.

      “这是一个好问题。我想现在我们所有人,尤其是当空气中充满政治的时候,来到某个地方想想黑洞或者宇宙的年龄或者恐龙是如何进化的,这真的很令人耳目一新。

      And we will continue to be talking about those things. If politics settles down, we’ll be doing probably more of those than we have in the past few years. But at this moment, the future of the research enterprise is really on the line. And we just think it’s important for people to know how dramatically one administration or another can influence the way that scientific collaboration happens, the way science is communicated, what the priorities are for what should be studied and how.”

      我们会继续讨论这些事情。如果政治稳定下来,我们可能会比过去几年做更多这样的事情。但此时此刻,科研企业的未来真的岌岌可危。我们认为,重要的是让人们知道,一个政府或另一个政府会在多大程度上影响科学合作发生的方式、科学交流的方式、应该研究什么以及如何研究什么应该优先。”
