Right now, important decisions are being made that will impact the health and security of the world we live in and that our children will inherit. Are these decisions being made using the best available science?

Unfortunately, powerful oil and coal companies, agribusiness, arms control opponents, and groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are twisting scientific facts to incite fear and sway elected officials into opposing efforts to curb global warming, reduce the threat of nuclear weapons, and keep our food safe.

We can't allow these groups to derail essential action. That's why I'm writing to you today to ask you to help debunk these fabrications by becoming a member of the Union of Concerned Scientists.

A generous UCS supporter has offered to match, dollar-for-dollar, all new memberships to UCS, so when you become a member today, your donation will go twice as far.

UCS is taking the lead to expose and challenge the misuse of science. Recently, when opponents of climate action misrepresented illegally obtained emails from scientists in Great Britain to try to manufacture doubt on the eve of an important climate summit in Copenhagen, UCS quickly and skillfully mobilized scientists to set the record straight with the media and the public. The science is clear. There is no doubt. Swift action to curb emissions is needed now.

When you join today your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar enabling us to:

  • Expose and challenge corporations, front groups, and skeptics who mislead the public and misrepresent science.
  • Identify technologies and solutions to quickly and cost-effectively put the brakes on rising global temperatures.
  • Debunk the myth that nuclear weapons improve our national security.
  • Pressure Congress to lock-in protections that will keep science transparent, independent, and in service of public health and the environment.
  • Educate and mobilize scientists, economists, and citizens to advocate for practical solutions to problems impacting our health, environment, and security.

Please become a member today.

UCS is the only science-based organization that partners leading scientists with concerned citizens to advance science-based solutions to curb global warming, reduce the threat of nuclear weapons, generate clean and renewable energy, produce more fuel-efficient cars, and much more.

In contrast to the paid-for “experts” hired by special interests to mislead the public, UCS’s scientific authorities include Nobel laureates, physicists, biologists, economists, and respected professors who are dedicated to finding the truth. And unafraid to speak that truth to power.

To take advantage of the huge opportunities before us and to achieve bold action on climate change, energy and transportation solutions, and nuclear weapons policy, UCS needs your support. Please become a member of UCS today and take advantage of this special opportunity to make your donation go twice as far.
