New Tool Launched to Track Politicization of Science

The Sabin Center for Climate Change Law and the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund have announced a new joint initiative: Silencing Science Tracker (SST, http://columbiaclima...cience-tracker/). According to the groups, the project is intended to record reports of government attempts to silence science. At present, the SST includes actions taken by Federal agencies. The initiative plans to track state level actions in the future. Per the SST website, “silencing science” is defined as any action that has the effect of restricting or prohibiting scientific research, education or discussion, or the publication or use of scientific information.
