Got Science?

Each month our "Got Science?" column spotlights a story about the use or abuse of science in public policy, showing how attacks on science undermine public health and safety, how special interests use misinformation to deceive the public, and how courageous defenders of science can make a difference.


The Union of Concerned Scientists is proud to announce our Got Science? Defenders for 2017: five people and groups who have refused to be silent.
Now more than ever, science needs champions—those who defend science against powerful special interests, and those who practice science in service of a better world even in the face of political backlash. Each year, the Union of Concerned Scientists chooses five Got Science? Champions: people and groups who’ve stood up for science, and used it as a tool to change people’s lives for the better. We’re proud to present the five winners for 2016.
