On September 7, EPA announced the 132 candidates for its new Science Advisory Board. I am one of the candidates in atmospheric sciences. You can download the EPA announcement and list of candidates with their biosketches here.
EPA invites you to send your comments on any of the candidates to Mr. Thomas Carpenter at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 28, 2017.
EPA seeks experts in 24 listed disciplines with expertise in at least one of 18 different fields. My expertise is in complex systems and modeling, and my field is atmospheric science.
A key question is which candidates are on the side of President Trump. In the atmospheric sciences, the following candidates, all my friends, are on the side of President Trump (in alphabetical order): Berry, Carlin, D’Aleo, Fulks, Idso, Legates, and Steward.
Berry and D’Aleo are AMS Certified Consulting Meteorologists (CCM). Berry and Carlin are Caltech graduates.
Atmospheric science candidates who list their work for the UN IPCC may not be on Trump’s side.
Steve Milloy (a good guy) has listed some good and bad candidates in other fields on his website here.
I support Dr. James E. Enstrom in the public health field.
I encourage you to email Mr. Carpenter your comments and preferences for the EPA Scientific Advisory Board.
