Join us in demanding that the TRUMP White House and their appointees base federal policies on fact-checked conclusions from reputable expert sources in science, medicine & engineering. In areas where human lives are directly at stake, it is a moral imperative that we base our policies on hard science and not politics. Climate Change is the ultimate existential question facing humankind. Of all the subjects addressed in Washington, it is most unacceptable to decide this one on politics.

Let's be clear. Decisions about the federal budget are central to this discussion. We cannot act wisely if we allow political moves to eliminate funding for the research, development, and demonstration that will provide humanity with the best tools available to meet the challenge before us. Funding that supports safe, clean, renewable energy technologies at the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy is essential. Funding at the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the National Science Foundation, etc. is essential to assure we engage in the wise planning and careful monitoring that will continue to protect human life from the threat of Climate Change, as well as the from the solutions we deploy. We need to true to the message of "Do No Harm" and wise in the practice of the Precautionary Principle. To follow those guides and still rise to the challenge of Climate Change in a timely fashion, our scientific institutions need funding that covers the range of essential questions and we need to do it with an eye on equity, justice, and fairness.
