Climate Scientists Will Fight Back

November 8, 2010

Hundreds of climate scientists, organized in a new effort being announced today by the American Geophysical Union, are pledging to fight back against politicians who dispute established findings and who threaten scientists with politically motivated investigations, the Chicago Tribune reported. More than 700 researchers have agreed to participate in the campaign. "This group feels strongly that science and politics can't be divorced and that we need to take bold measures to not only communicate science but also to aggressively engage the denialists and politicians who attack climate science and its scientists," said Scott Mandia, professor of physical sciences at Suffolk County Community College in New York.
