Nonprofit Spotlight: Union of Concerned Scientists
Climate change is now the most polarizing issue in America. That’s part of the reason why the U.S. has been so slow to take action against global warming. But this may change as more Americans learn who’s funding climate change denial: Big Oil. A recent report by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) details in stunning clarity Big Oil’s massive climate disinformation campaign.
Since 1981, the world’s fossil fuel companies have worked to deceive the public about the cause of global warming in order to pursue profit unhindered. Words can’t describe Big Oil’s savage effort to make money at the expense of our future. But now, thanks in part to UCS, we may start to take our future back. UCS is one of the many progressive groups CREDO members support. In August, we donated $90,191 to UCS.
