Even in 2023, we still have GOP politicians saying that climate science is “a hoax.” The systematic undermining of public confidence in climate science, and in science in general, has caused untold harm to America and to the world, by delaying the machines of American ingenuity and industry from rapidly transforming our economy to run on clean energy.
