The Mercer Family Foundation, led by Rebekah Mercer, has sunk millions of dollars into climate-denying politicians, Breitbart News, and a host of climate denial organizations, including Heartland Institute, CO2 Coalition, and the deceptively named Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide. These denial outfits peddle conspiracy and anti-science bunk theories to support continued reliance on fossil fuels.
Yet Rebekah Mercer sits on the board of one of our nation’s largest and most respected natural history museums — the American Museum of Natural History — while she bankrolls groups that deny climate science. More than 200 top climate and Earth scientists have signed a letter urging the museum to cut ties to Mercer. Add your voice to theirs.
Two years ago, The Natural History Museum, a nonprofit traveling museum and science advocacy group, won the campaign to get billionaire climate denial funder David Koch off the board of the AMNH. Thousands of ClimateTruth.org supporters spoke out then, and now it's time to do the same with Mercer.
Add your voice! Join ClimateTruth.org, The Natural History Museum, and a coalition of organizations, scientists, and climate advocates who are taking a strong stand. Sign this petition to the American Museum of Natural History: It’s time to get science deniers out of science museums.
