The 2016 Center for Science and Democracy Calendar

Each year since 2006, UCS has asked artists all over the United States to give us their creative take on the absurdity of political interference in science. This year we picked six winners from our 2015 editorial cartoon contest and commissioned six previous winners to develop cartoons that shine a light on the importance of defending science in the American democracy. The featured cartoons address a number of topics that are critical to the role of science in policy making—from climate change to endangered species—and in our everyday lives.
