Influx Insights has posted an interesting thought-starter (round 2): How to improve the image of science?

From this Scientific American article it seems like science's image needs an overhaul for the powers-that-be as well:

"Budgetary threats to some of our greatest projects have almost become ritual, but we cannot assume there will be any public clamor or congressional saviors."

This is a not-so-smart thing for our country to be able to keep up our innovating ways. The American Chemistry campaign is trying to put a dent in our negative perceptions of science, but they are still speaking to those pre-disposed to enjoying science and acting more as a source of information/education than shaking the image of science up. In addition to the kids, we've got to make science cooler and more relevant to people in all walks of life.
