As citizens who will elect future presidents of the most powerful and influential country in the world, we need to know -- truly understand, not just rely on television's talking heads -- if Iran's nascent nuclear capability is a genuine threat to the West, if biochemical weapons are likely to be developed by terrorists, if there are viable alternatives to fossil fuels that should be nurtured and supported by the government, if nuclear power should be encouraged, and if global warming is actually happening.
