Sign the petition to demand that science be free of ideological bias!
Science is the never-ending search for new knowledge. Science is about discovery—based on the unbiased scientific method. Over the last few years we have seen that, just like media, education, and journalism...now science is being taken over by a left-wing agenda. This is scary!
Science is increasingly controlled by special interests such as politicians and large corporations. Scientists are pressured to concoct predetermined hypotheses that reach predetermined conclusions—all in support of leftist narratives!
Climate change is a perfect example. While many agree that the climate is changing, the apocalyptic claims about the planet being uninhabitable in just a few years are simply untrue. Scientific models are predictions of the future based on current data. They are often wrong. But, if scientists question these models they are labeled as “science deniers”!
Here are just a few doomsday climate predictions that never happened:
Air pollution will cause an ice age by the 21st century (Boston Globe, 1970)
The hole in the ozone layer will be “a great peril to life” (UPI, 1974)
New York City’s West Side Highway will be underwater by 2019 (Salon, 1989)
“Children aren’t going to know what snow is” (The Independent, 2000)
North Polar ice cap will be free of ice in five years (Al Gore, 2008)
Why is this happening?
By manipulating science, the left causes the public to panic, fear for its safety, and become compliant.
This hysteria allows the adoption of ineffective and costly government “solutions.” The left profits and more taxpayer-funded government subsidies are created.
Politicians who built their entire careers on false science now use it to grab more control over our lives!
Why don’t you hear more about this?
Many universities are discouraging real research, marginalizing honest scientists and bullying them into ensuring outcomes that fit their biased goals.
Scientists rely on funding to do their work—many are essentially being paid off to validate the left’s outlandish theories.
The mainstream media often diminishes honest scientific research or chooses not to cover it at all.
Online social media “fact checkers” are censoring scientists who deviate from the left’s narrative.
Scientists and scholars need our support to make new discoveries and make the world a better place for everyone!
By signing this petition you:
-Insist that science has no political ideology!
-Support the acceptance of varied and dissenting scientific opinions
-Demand that scientists stop being bullied and censored by the left
-Encourage scientists to stay true to themselves—and to the essential field of science!
-Tell social media and mainstream media to stop excluding and censoring the important work of scientists and scholars like:
