Stop the next ClimateGate: Stand with public sector scientists and show them your support against agenda driven bullying
It's a tactic pulled straight from the climate change deniers' playbook — and now an anti-science, agenda-driven organization is using it to bully another group of scientists.
In early February, 14 senior scientists at four U.S. universities received requests under the Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) to turn over three years worth of e-mail correspondence with a handful of agricultural companies, trade groups, and PR firms.
We've seen this anti-science bullying tactic before in Climategate, where academic discussion was taken out of context to mislead the public.
These scientists need the support of allies like you to protect scientific freedom.
