What Can I Do?

  1. First of all spread the word. Retweet the original thread here.
  2. Let’s get The Global Warming Policy Forum de-listed as a science website. See Andrew Harmsworth’s tweet below on how to suggest a change — as far as I know if enough people do this, it will force the change upon the organisation.
  3. I recommend you follow some relevant people and organisations. I’ve tagged quite a few in this tweet.
