Scientists are no strangers to politics. Newspapers report daily about scientific experts participating in controversies such as low‐level radiation, DNA testing, cloning or global warming. We find scientists testifying in congressional hearings, courtrooms and various committees on issues requiring both technical expertise and political judgment. This inseparability of science and politics is particularly visible in highly contested areas such as national security and nuclear arms control.
