Ahead of Earth Day, PragerU launches petition calling Big Tech to end censorship of scientists who don’t toe leftist line on climate change
LOS ANGELES — PragerU has launched “#ClimateTruth: Get Politics Out of Science,” a nationwide social media initiative to rally support for scientists silenced by climate change activists from Tuesday, April 20, through Thursday, April 22. The overarching goal of the initiative is to give a voice to scientists who do not agree with an aggressive climate crisis agenda. The campaign includes both online and offline actions.
“Science has been co-opted by special interest groups like politicians, large corporations and progressive environmental organizations,” said Marissa Streit, CEO of PragerU. “Sadly, scientists are often pressured to support a leftist agenda. When they don’t conform or when they question, they’re punished or silenced. Only scientists who tell leftists what they want to hear are allowed to speak and to publish. It’s time to take back science so that it can be what it was always meant to be: a pursuit of truth.”
For those who wish to participate via social media, PragerU has created an online toolkit with simple actions steps:
1. Post on social media
