Abstract: "The last paragraph of Peterson et al. (1997) calls for political action, not scientific action. We should avoid confusing the two. As citizens, we have important political responsibilities, and as scientists, special competencies in meeting some of them. However, we lose credibility as informants and influence as advisors if we present our politics as somehow more 'scientific' than our neighbor's."
