The War on Science
Science is under siege. Anti-science groups and individuals seek to delegitimize, interfere with, and undermine facts and evidence that threaten their financial interests and ideological beliefs. Aggressive legal action, harassment, and even death threats are standard occurrences for climate researchers. We fight for scientists and defend scientific integrity by exposing and challenging these attacks against science to preserve academic freedom and prevent manipulation of public policy.
know your rights
The risk of legal attack on any individual scientist is small, but there are actions researchers can take to protect and defend themselves against politically-motivated attacks.
Silencing Science Tracker
Together with the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, we’ve documented more than 250 attempts by federal, state, and local governments to restrict and undermine science.
