Reject Ohio's Climate Change Denial Bill

College professors in Ohio may soon be prohibited from teaching students about climate change.

That's right: Legislation currently being considered by the Ohio General Assembly would designate climate change a "controversial belief or policy" and says faculty must “encourage students to reach their own conclusions about all controversial beliefs or policies and shall not seek to inculcate any social, political, or religious point of view.”

Sign the petition urging the Ohio General Assembly to reject this dangerous climate change denial bill.

The proposed Ohio law is part of a broader trend of conservatives attempting to limit or restrict what happens on college campuses.

According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, 35 laws have been proposed around the country that would restrict diversity programs or otherwise regulate behavior at colleges and universities.

Republicans seem to think that we can make diversity and climate change go away by prohibiting people from talking about them on college campuses. But as climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe put it, "you can say gravity isn't true, but if you step off the cliff, you’re going down.”
