Policy, Politics, and Science in the White House:  Conversations with Presidential Science Advisors

To gain perspective on the role of science in policy and politics at the highest levels of government, the CIRES Center for Science and Technology Policy Research is sponsoring a lecture series featuring current and former presidential science advisors. 

Through this series we seek to document how science is used and perhaps sometimes misused in policy and politics.  Using an interview format we will articulate the theme by discussing with each presidential science advisor a significant science policy issue or issues that arose during his tenure. 

For more information please contact Roger Pielke at or Bobbie Klein at
