Shows how polarized the us has become. It’s not really their place to be backing political candidates.

Trump is a very unusual candidate in the extent to which he rejects science and lies about public health issues. Some presidents have been bad, but Trump is abysmal in this respect. I don't think it's the polarization as much as Donald Trump in particular. Of course, he is a product of the polarization.

I still think it’s the wrong forum, and it works to trumps favor and to the favor of science deniers to endorse Biden.

It's simply a reflection of urgent scientific concern at an institutional level in the U.S.

It's pretty absurd to me that anyone could read this headline/story and think something like "stupid scientists, so political, just shutup". Scientists have been shut up. It's time to speak out.
