Here are excerpts of a bulletin from the Union of Concerned Scientists for one thing we can do on Fri. 7/22/05 regarding global warming: Watch a TV show!Greetings,We thought you’d want to know about a chance to learn more about the work we do from the comfort of your own living room! UCS President Kevin Knobloch is scheduled to appear on the PBS television program NOW to talk about the growing problem of political interference in science this Friday, July 22, 2005. The hour-long program is expected to focus on one well-known example of scientific abuse: the Bush administration’s long history of manipulating, suppressing, and distorting the science on global warming. Last month, the New York Times reported that Phil Cooney, a former oil industry lobbyist working for the White House, edited scientific climate change reports to significantly exaggerate uncertainty about the science behind global warming. Two days after the Times article, Cooney resigned and took a job with Exxon-Mobil. The Restoring Scientific Integrity campaignTo date, more than 6,700 scientists, including 49 Nobel Laureates, have signed a statement decrying the current situation as unprecedented and calling for change.Visit the UCS website to learn more about efforts to prevent the abuse of science. We encourage you to tune into the NOW program this Friday evening – or if you’ve already made plans, set your VCR or TiVo! Sometime next week, you can watch the broadcast and read the program transcript online in the NOW archive.Thanks for your support of UCS! ----------
