Global Science community: an idea for improving "good" science
Someone posted an idea about "good VS bad" science. I think this is very important. But that post lacked, in my opinion, real solutions. I propose that we make an NGO or a government-sponsored International Community of Scientist, to make an open, independent, non-linked to companies, and more efficient sciences community. For instance, the Health Sciences (and the Health services in general) are deeply harmed by the influence of Pharmaceutical Companies and other corporative interests. A non-profit Pharmaceutical research center would be very helpful, and it could invest in non-addictive, natural, eco-friendly drugs, in diseases prevention (that is not a goal of Health Industry, given that they profit from diseases) and such. This Community could have a Website, where part of the Science could be made by volunteers around the globe, and specialists hired by the Community would evaluate these volunteer research and make their own researches as well. Other areas besides Health that would be strategical, urgent, good for everyone: Environment and Energy, Transportation, Peace Studies.
