The Climate Science Legal Defense Fund (CSLDF) works to defend climate scientists who are dragged into litigation or otherwise threatened with legal attacks and harassment by politically and ideologically motivated groups. We also work to educate members of the scientific community, helping them gain a better understanding of the legal issues surrounding their work, and to educate the public about the legal issues facing climate scientists. Since 2011, we’ve helped nearly two hundred researchers, conducted legal education workshops for scientists and lawyers and developed a network of pro-bono lawyers ready to help scientists.
