Columbia’s Sabin Center for Climate Change Law recently launched a website that documents the US government’s efforts to suppress the work of scientists working on environmental, public-health, and climate issues. The website, called the Silencing Science Tracker, records attempts by the Trump administration to restrict or distort public discussion about scientific research. It concludes that the largest number of anti-science actions so far have occurred at the Environmental Protection Agency, followed by the Departments of the Interior and Energy.

A collaboration with the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund, the Silencing Science Tracker also links to legal resources for whistleblowers and scientists.
