Review for Union of Concerned Scientists, Inc., Cambridge, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a scientist, I have found UCS's workshops, reports, and factsheets to be a great resource whenever I am trying to communicate my research to a broader audience. I also feel that their work on nuclear safety and security, climate change, clean energy, and food safety and sustainability are all based on solid scientific evidence, and I am extremely grateful for their work in fighting political interference in how science is being conducted in this country. (I've gotten their calendar for the past few years, and I really enjoy the cartoons on scientific integrity in the calendar.)

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending their workshops at conferences, getting first-hand advice from them on communicating science at a large public forum, using their reports on climate science and clean energy.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find some way to make it as visible as other environmental organizations like the Environmental Defense Fund and Natural Resources Defense Council.
