There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2020.

Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow
| It's gettin' hot in here|
Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) is an anti-environmentalist pressure group founded by David Rothbard and Craig Rucker in 1985. They both have the academic backgrounds, lifestyles, addresses and PR guru mugshots of serious lobbyists. Three of the primary funders of CFACT are the Carthage Foundation, Exxon Mobil, and the Sarah Scaife Foundation. A whole host of prominent deniers have sat on its board of advisers at some time, including Sallie Baliunas, Roger Bate, E. Calvin Beisner, Michael Fumento, Sherwood B. Idso, Patrick Michaels, and Frederick Seitz. The organization funds Climate Depot, Marc Morano's online denialist outlet. In 2009, they helped to organize the Copenhagen Climate Challenge, the denialist response to the United Nations' Copenhagen Summit.
