Interesting comments in an interview published Nov. 12 in Science about what should happen in the Nov. 17 congressional hearing on climate change.
Brian Baird (D-WV) - We're going to start with the basics: why the ocean is acidifying, why we think the climate will change. i don't think we've made the case for the basic phsics and chemistry of these two phenomina and presented the evidence that it is happening
Bob Inglis (R-SC): i would encourage the scientists to come to these hearings with great glee, to show the data that they have discovered and to present it in a winning way. . . If they come with an attitude of defensiveness then it will support those who say "This is a bunch of hooey and we don't need to spend any money on it."
