Union of concern Scientists

UCS apparently hasn’t learned from its many, many mistakes. But if at first you don’t succeed, scare, scare again.

The UCS is not a science organization, but a left-wing lobbying group like Greenpeace or the Club Sierra.
Because they have the word Scientists in the title does not make it a scientific organization...You and I can be members if we want ...just pay $35.00 and your in. They are anti capitalist and are from the far left of the political arena. They support the US Democratic party and are very involved in the US elections. Political motivation? “ Free Enterprise really means rich people get richer. They have the freedom to exploit and psychologically rape their fellow human beings in the process…. Capitalism is destroying the earth...Helen Caldicott, Union of Concerned Scientists.
Kevin Knobloch, President of the Union of Concerned Scientists is an expert on many environmental and arms control issues they claim. He is not a scientist and "issues" is what they are really about. His bio is as follows: Executive Director, Union of Concerned Scientists; director, CERES; former Director of Conservation Programs, Boston Appalachian Mountain Club; former Leg. Dir., U.S. Sen. Timothy Wirth (D-CO)” What we’ve got to do in energy conservation is try to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, to have approached global warming as if it is real means energy conservation, so we will be doing the right thing anyway in terms of economic policy and environmental policy...Timothy Wirth, former U.S. Senator (D-Colorado)
“Every time you turn on an electric light, you are making another brainless baby. Helen Caldicott, Union of Concerned Scientists.” Those kind of statements are not made by Scientists.
The Union of Concerned Scientists should be able to win any argument on global warming based on the merits of available data - but instead they seek to use smear tactics and compare Exxon-Mobil to Big Tobacco. We all know Big Tobacco is evil, right? So if you disagree with them on global warming, you must be evil too.

UCS has received funding from the Beldon Fund, the Compton Foundation, the Educational Foundation of America, the J.M. Kaplan Fund, the Scherman Foundation, the Blue Moon Fund, the Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Energy Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Turner Foundation, and Pew Charitable Trusts.
