Protect honest science: One funny short video. One petition to Congress.

Watch this short video supporting science in the face of deliberate anti-science stupidity. (It includes some foul language.)  Here is the link:


In May 2019 this petition came out.  Please sign it to urge Congress to pass the Scientific Integrity Act:

Credo Action ( provided information about this.  I’ve quoted some parts of their message and summarized other parts:

“As climate change grows increasingly dangerous, the last thing the government should be doing is censoring its own scientists. But the Trump administration is firing and reassigning scientists, preventing the release of key reports, altering findings, and stacking agencies with industry shills.

“The systematic attack on science threatens us all. Congress must act now to protect science.”

Please click the link above to tell congress to pass the Scientific Integrity Act.

“Since Trump’s election, the federal government has mounted over 200 documented acts of interference or suppression of science and scientists.  …  And these are only the events reported in the news. Scientists face pressure daily to conform their activities to Trump’s ignorant world view. In a survey of federal scientists, 631 scientists reported that under the Trump administration, they were told to omit the phrase “climate change” from their work. Another 703 federal scientists said they self-censored by avoiding working on climate change or using the term.

“The Scientific Integrity Act would prohibit political appointees from altering or suppressing scientific findings and give scientists final review over how agencies use their work.  …

“Congress has the power to force the Trump administration to leave scientists alone and let them do their research – and communicate about it – without fear of losing their jobs. We need it to act to protect scientists and the future of our planet.”
