Adam— Fact: 97 percent of climate scientists agree that - TopicsExpress


Adam— Fact: 97 percent of climate scientists agree that man-made climate change is real.1 Yet nearly 72 percent of Fox News Channels coverage of climate science is overwhelmingly misleading, questioning the reality of global warming that credible, peer-reviewed studies have upheld over, and over, and over again. Fox News is Americas most watched cable news source. Because their programs have the power to move the dial on public opinion, UCS is mobilizing citizens and scientists to pressure Fox to report accurate science on the air. Were ramping up this campaign next week, but we cant do it without your support. Make a gift now to defend science by putting pressure on Fox News. Thank you, John Mace Membership Director 1. Help stand up for the truth—make a tax-deductible gift today. DONATE Dear Adam, Sometimes, Fox News seems like a sitcom. New Research Shows Wind Farms Cause Global Warming1... Seriously? But their twisting of facts is anything but a joke. When their pundits say carbon dioxide literally cannot cause global warming because it doesnt mix well in the atmosphere, it undermines urgent efforts to address the threat of climate change.2 When they claim hundreds of thousands of scientists debate climate change, they confuse the public, which decreases trust in scientists, according to a recent study from Yale University.3 Thats why we need you. When you make a gift today, youll defend science by getting real scientists onto the airwaves and into the room with key decision makers. Scientists are powerful and credible messengers, and giving them visibility works. Make a tax-deductible gift today to the Union of Concerned Scientists and stand up to Fox News and other outlets that distort the facts. UCS members are taking on the media moguls and pundits who undermine science. We just released Science or Spin?—a brand new analysis of how accurately Fox News, the most widely watched cable news networks in the United States, represents the science behind global warming.4 Then we launched a vigorous grassroots campaign to make sure the public heard the truth. Our grassroots strength—combined with savvy political and media work—led UCS to be named one of the most effective organizations working on climate change by Guidestars Philanthropedia. When you invest in UCS, you help get things done. Its as simple as that. Whistleblower protections for federal scientists? Check. Pfizer pulling funding from a climate-denial think tank? Check. Incentivizing renewable energy like wind and solar power? Check. National standards mandating cleaner fuels for cars? Check. Help win even more victories like these. From energy to food, weve got big plans, and we need you by our side to: Combat climate change by getting global companies to use deforestation-free palm oil. Weve already helped convince five major players, including Kelloggs and Colgate-Palmolive, to clean up their palm oil acts this year. Dunkin Brands, Pepsi, and McDonalds are next. Cut our nations projected oil use in half within 20 years. Weve developed a pragmatic, achievable plan to do it: cleaner cars, cleaner energy, and a media and lobbying campaign thats already working to get policy makers on board. Support healthy food and farming by fighting subsidies for crops used to produce processed food and advocating for environmentally friendly farming methods. Stand up for science. Make a tax-deductible gift today! Thanks for fighting for a healthier, safer planet.
