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
Nearly 350 attacks on science by federal, state, and local governments—and one database to search them all: The Silencing Science Tracker, our project with the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law.
Our attorneys are leading legal education workshops and giving talks at a number of scientific conferences this summer and fall including the ESA, GSA, and AGU Annual Meetings.
