Pielke.testify

Last week I testified before the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.  You can see the full hearing and the written statements from each of the witnesses here. You can jump right to my testimony (here in PDF), which focused on how members of Congress can help to secure scientific integrity in the information they receive from scientists. 

For me the hearing underscored how politicized this issue is, not just in Congress, but within the climate science community and among the media. It’s like Groundhog Day. It that context, its not surprising that there has been little interest in the actual substance of my testimony – either the science-y parts or the science & politics part. However, in anyone wishes to discuss or debate, please be in touch.

I’ll continue to advocate for scientific integrity in science and for bipartisan action on climate. Meantime, come Monday I’m back at work at the CU Sports Governance Center!
