Please join us for a talk at the Ecological Society of America Annual Meeting.
In January 2018, the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund and Sabin Center for Climate Change Law created a searchable public database, the Silencing Science Tracker, which has documented more than 400 attacks on science by federal, state, and local governments since the November 2016 elections.
In this talk, we’ll explain the Tracker data and anti-science trends we’ve observed, including how attempts to restrict science have changed over the last two years. We’ll discuss how federal agencies have been affected—most federal entries document actions at the EPA but many other agencies are represented in the Tracker—and the types of science most impacted by these actions. We’ll also talk about the implications for scientists and science policy.
Please note that the date and time for this event are not yet assigned.
