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.

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 Columbia University’s Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, we’re keeping track of all the ways the federal government is undermining and restricting climate and environmental science.
In this series, climate scientists explain how being threatened with legal attacks or harassed by ideologically motivated groups has impacted their work and their lives.
