A new initiative in the struggle for quality science education
Science education is under attack—again.
This time it's under attack by climate change deniers, who ignore a mountain of evidence gathered over the last fifty years that the planet is warming and that humans are largely responsible. These deniers attempt to sabotage science education with fringe ideas, pseudoscience, and outright lies.
But the National Center for Science Education won't let 'em get away with it.
Evolution pros, crusading scientist/writers, a climate change evangelist, and an artist are honored by NCSE
NCSE recognizes Donald Prothero, Katharine Hayhoe, Dana Nuccitelli, John Abraham, Andrew J. Petto, Paula Spence, and Skeptical Science for their tireless work defending and promoting science education.

From "Evolutionists do it with increasing complexity" to "Honk if you understand punctuated equilibria," NCSE has long been your go-to place for clever evolution bumper stickers. But now that NCSE is also defending the teaching of climate science, it's time to update the inventory — and it could be with your brilliant idea.
