USA Is the Only Country to Bully Climate Change Scientists

Ever hear a politician, or even just a guy you meet at the bar, rip into scientists about the evidence behind climate change? If you live in the USA, the answer is most likely yes. In Canada or Europe? Not so much.

InsideClimate News reports that while scientists in the USA who talk about climate change being caused by humans get flooded with emails and even death threats, scientists in other countries are largely left alone.

Jochem Marotzke, a scientist in Hamburg, said,  “I get the odd critical email from a skeptic, but would not classify anything as personally aggressive. Very different from the U.S. scene.”

Tim Lenton from the University of Exeter in England said on the subject, “I feel for my American colleagues and what they’ve had to deal with. British scientists aren’t immune to attacks, but it is a very different level than compared to what is happening in the U.S.”

It goes beyond scientists getting some harsh emails. Politicians in other countries have more freedom to make changes in the way humans effect the environment because public opinion, as well as science, is on their side. Climate change isn’t seen as a fringe “liberal” issue.
