You stand for a better world

The Union of Concerned Scientists puts rigorous, independent science to work to solve our planet’s most pressing problems. When you support the Union of Concerned Scientists, you are making it part of your life story to create a healthier planet and safer world.

Our impact is real

  • Together, we combat climate change and seek to alleviate harm caused by the heat, sea level rise, and other consequences of runaway emissions.
  • We strive to develop sustainable ways to feed, power, and transport ourselves.
  • We work to reduce the existential threat of nuclear war.
  • We fight back when powerful corporations or special interests mislead the public on science.
  • We ensure our solutions advance racial and economic equity.

“To preserve the planet for future generations, we need to aggressively confront large issues like climate change and preventing nuclear weapons proliferation. UCS is a forceful, clear voice calling for solutions and facilitating communications to policymakers and the public.”
