Get science deniers out of science museums

  • Jan 25, 2018

The Mercer Family Foundation, led by Rebekah Mercer, has sunk millions of dollars into Breitbart, climate-denying politicians, and a host of climate denial organizations. Rebekah Mercer sits on the board of one of our nation’s largest and most respected natural history museums, 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.

Sign this petition to the American Museum of Natural History: It’s time to get science deniers out of science museums. Kick Mercer off the board!


* The scientist letter and this petition were initiated by The Natural History Museum, nonpartisan nonprofit traveling museum that collaborates with scientists, major public museums, educators, artists and community groups. In 2015, The Natural History Museum initiated a scientist letter and petition signed by more than 550,000 people urging the American Museum of Natural History to kick climate denial funder David Koch off its board. He stepped down a few months later. Now it’s time to do the same with Mercer.
