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.
Make a Note to the Record
If you’re a federal scientist concerned about workplace changes that could imperil your agency’s mission, it’s important to document your observations carefully. Our guide will help you protect science for the public good.
Silencing Science Tracker
The Silencing Science Tracker, our project with Columbia’s Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, logs government actions to silence scientists working on environmental, public health and climate issues.
