A group of prominent scientists is lobbying science museums in the United States to stop accepting funding from fossil fuel interests.

“As members of the scientific community we devote our lives to understanding the world, and sharing this understanding with the public,” wrote the group of 39 scientists in an open letter to all museums of science and natural history. “We are deeply concerned by the links between museums of science and natural history with those who profit from fossil fuels or fund lobby groups that misrepresent climate science.”
