For their first presidential endorsement ever, Scientific American has announced that they are backing Joe Biden for President.
“Scientific American has never endorsed a presidential candidate in our 175-year history—until now. The 2020 election is literally a matter of life and death. We urge you to vote for health, science, and Joe Biden for President,” tweeted the magazine.
The publication said they felt compelled to endorse Joe Biden because according to evidence, Donald Trump is bad for the environment and for science. They also noted that Trump does not take responsibility for his actions, making him a poor leader. The Editors at Scientific American attributed the 190,000 American, COVID-19 related deaths to Trump’s dismissal of science and said his dismantling of science and health-driven policy groups is an endangerment to society.
“He (Trump) has also attacked environmental protection, medical care, and the researchers and public science agencies that help this country prepare for its greatest challenges. That is why we urge you to vote for Joe Biden, who is offering fact-based plans to protect our health, our economy, and the environment,” read the statement.
