Scientific American has endorsed Joe Biden for president, the first time the venerable science magazine has backed a presidential candidate in its 175-year history.
The magazine’s editors said they were motivated to endorse Biden after seeing how science has been ignored and politicized by President Donald Trump and his administration.
The endorsement comes with less than 50 days to go until the U.S. presidential election and as the country juggles multiple crises in addition to the pandemic — a prolonged economic downturn, catastrophic wildfires on the West Coast and an intense Atlantic hurricane season.
Sept. 15, 202005:20The editors said Trump’s failure to develop a national strategy to fight the pandemic helped accelerate the spread of the disease across the country and his misrepresentations of the facts have done even more damage.“His lies encouraged people to engage in risky behavior, spreading the virus further, and have driven wedges between Americans who take the threat seriously and those who believe Trump's falsehoods,” they wrote.
But their concerns went beyond the president’s response to the pandemic and included Trump’s attempts to end the Affordable Care Act, his commitment to dismantling environmental protections and policies, and his proposed cuts in funding to agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Biden has prioritized climate change throughout his campaign. In July, heunveiled a $2 trillion planthat experts said would put the country on an ambitious path to building a clean energy economy. The plan, which includes the goal of achieving a 100 percent clean electricity standard by 2035, earned high praise from climate scientists and environmental advocates, who said the proposal would also help repair the country’s reputation internationally.
Though much of Biden’s plan would require approval from Congress, the magazine’s editors said the candidate “is acutely aware that we must heed the abundant research showing ways to recover from our present crises and successfully cope with future challenges.”
They added that Trump’s many attacks on science and the scientific agencies designed to protect the country guided their decision to endorse a presidential candidate for the first time.“The 2020 election is literally a matter of life and death,”. “We urge you to vote for health, science and Joe Biden for President."Read more: NBC News »

The coronavirus pandemic has brought countries to a standstill. In many places, as countries reopen, Covid-19 cases are on the rise. Follow here for the latest.
What surprise a Democrat magazine endorsed a Democrat president. They never done it before but see how desperate Joe Biden is and how bad he is suffering from Alzheimer's disease They could think any better way to help. Which in the long run it's not going to help. To destroy America. Thanks Sounds like SA hired some of the folks from CNN.
How big a 'charitable donation' did the Nazi Collaborator George Soros give to the FRAUD scientists? Yawn Yeah! Science is real unlike your president. I am sad that the people of the police union in NYC came out backing Trump. Woo-hoo!!!!! They became left-leaning from the center in June, that’s why. Now use articles written by writers with left-wing ideological views of Critical Race Theory, left-wing academics and commentators. .
Neither Scientific nor American. Subscription cancelled. 🧐🍸Biden BidenHarris2020ToSaveAmerica Trump2020LandslideVictory Democrat donors on their executive board. Shows the lack of common sense in the science field The fact that Magazines still exist is the real news here. Joes probably one of the 1200 subscribers to it
I wonder why... Fun fact - Scientific American is owned by a Stuggart and London based opaque LLC like arrangement. Perhaps the President’s suggestion that doctors explore injecting people with disinfectant was the last paper straw? Well, since 2016 when it endorsed Clinton... and 2012 Obama 'venerable' so objective EnemyOfThePeople
carolduncan at this stage I'd imagine everyone but a pet rock will endorse ANYONE but the disastrous Trump Thank goodness..... I’ve been waiting for that.... whew! Lol at print media For a group of scientists I find it funny that they cant recognize dementia.... They must be trying new drugs or maybe are backing medical labs....
gamechanger It's based on science Annnnnnnd Who cares Of cource they would. Need money for there issues. Useless biden German company, who cares? Fake Science endorsed is so funny. They are litrally all propping each others lies up. This house of cards has fallen More and more US scientists & scientific agencies are sponsored by CCP china
Trump2020 Biden viejo pedófilo y violín ... 'many Scientific American articles are written from the perspective of critical race theory' Everyday people won't vote for him, but at least a magazine will Arrest were made of arsonist starting fires but msm dont like to tell you. YEAH !!! I HOPE PROF.LISA RANDALL IS ALL IN !!!
These ppl know what their talking about Scientific American is devoted to climate change orthodoxy. Who is the girl in this picture? Why does it look like she barely eats? Why is she hiking up her shorts? Who is she looking at for approval? Why is Biden looking at her like that? Support XR. Palm oil =No wildlife,Cars, Planes Cruise ships = Bush Forest Fires Drought Food Migrants Morning moving North Global Temp , Warm Atlantic Hurricanes. Effluent,Plastic Beaches, Holiday anyone?No wonder OUR children rebelling. Trump Johnston Destroying our planet.
This is fantastic, if rather an obvious choice I would say. Haben sie nicht einen noch älteren ausfindig machen können? Gibt es in USA keine jüngeren clevere Politiker? In USA braucht man keinen Verstand um President zu werden, da muss man nur Geld haben. In was für einer armen Welt leben wir? Joe loves China!
Honestly, what was the alternative? I'm sure it's because of his stance on climate change. Trump doesn't believe in it realDonaldTrump ICYMI I don’t want a needy president. Joe Biden, patron saint of science, apparently believes that there is some sort of physical mechanism by which the President of the United States can actually cause hurricanes to materialize, wild fires to start and flood waters to rise.
Sad. Just because he says the word .,science ..science science ..people think he’s into science... people are so stupid! I’m scared for the science community 'Venerable science magazine' ...well they can't use that description anymore. It seems rather unscientific to endorse a candidate with dementia. When will you be doing a story about that?
It sadly proves how un-Scientific they've become. Democrats call CO2 and methane gas pollutants. Then they call Bruce Jenner a woman. ...blinding me with science. But Trump got the Scientific Russian endorsement. Did you mention they are owned by a German company? 🤔 Democratic PPV, CNN, September 31st at 9PM. Only $29.99. Interview by Don Lemon.
So they think Biden believes in Science? “ I don’t believe in God, I just believe in Science” Following Esquelto of “NachoLibre” 🤣 🤢🤮 I’m sure Scientific American is the definitive source on American politics... What's a magazine? The science of Molotov cocktails starting fires? GTK Means nothing. biden will cure cancer if he wins ! Why would you say or do that ? If you know do it now.... Why let people suffer ? QuidProQuoJoe
This makes sense. His opponent thinks we should hear from the Semen Demon lady It merged with another company 5 years ago. This asshat. Endorsements are only effective if they motivate the 18-35 year olds to vote. Swift Climate Change reversal and radical Racial Justice reforms are key issues. China science!!!! DespacitoJoe
Well when you hire liberal left or elite to run your organization... you are going to have terrible decisions that have “never happened” before💁🏽♀️ Ironically that rag is no longer scientific or American But I digress seeing how’s its German is that foreign influence on our elections ? Democrats are so freaked out
Lol Every logical people can vote for Biden. Owned by a German conglomerate...but apparently foreign election interference is cool when it helps Dems Tk Elon
Scientific American magazine backs Joe Biden, its first presidential endorsement in 175 yearsThe editors of the 175-year-old magazine wrote that they felt compelled to speak out because Trump 'rejects evidence and science.' TDS is the real pandemic. Nobody cares, the Big Ten is back. Here we Go! ... although they have been solidly lefty for years though.
Scientific American backs Biden in its first presidential endorsementThe magazine on Tuesday announced the first presidential endorsement in its 175-year history. Its editors said they felt "compelled" to do so because President Trump’s rejection of science has cost tens of thousands of American lives. Trump does not believe in science and he has said that hundred times. Uh yeah. Now if the rest of Americans could get onboard with Science American! Of course. I’m sure it’s all climate scientists, they want money. That’s how that works.

Scientific American backs Biden in first-ever endorsementScientific American cited Donald Trump’s handling of Covid-19 and his skepticism of expert opinion and mainstream science on issues like climate change as the impetus for its decision to endorse Joe Biden Leftists supporting leftists imagine that. I just feel like we need to stop pretending that science is always what you want it to be.
Wall Street Democrat hopes Biden beats Trump, but says a Biden win would initially hurt stocksHowever, investor Michael Novogratz said Monday that a Biden presidency may 'actually start balancing out the disproportionate gains' made in stocks, and in the long run, 'markets will be stronger.' We know dementia joe would tank the markets Leftist Propaganda. Scum media. You gotta be in the right sector if Biden wins (renewable energy )
Biden says ‘4 more years of Trump’s climate denial’ could mean more suburbs ‘burned in wildfires’Joe Biden on Monday attacked President Donald Trump’s responses to the wildfires in the West and climate change, saying the fires represent “yet another crisis he won’t take responsibility for': We get it you hate trump Shut up Biden Whether it’s ClimateChange or Covid, this science-denying coward in the WH is a threat to the entire world, not just America.
