AGU supports scientific integrity and the critical work of government scientists

Posted by Chris McEntee

AGU believes in science free of interference and political influence. We support our members and all scientists at federal agencies in the U.S. and around the world who make decisions and announce findings based on evidence and incontrovertible facts. These scientists, including those at NOAA and the National Weather Service, frequently provide research that protects our lives, communities, economy, and security. Interference with their work can impact lives and property here in the U.S. and across our borders. AGU supports scientists’ efforts to provide our society with the most factual information we need to be resilient in the face of extreme weather or other natural hazards. Science takes no sides and AGU has the backs of scientists working to uphold scientific integrity in the U.S. and across the globe.
