Nationally prominent climate change skeptic Dr. John Christy believes his office floor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville was "targeted" by gunshots over the national March for Science weekend. "To me, it looks like the fourth floor was targeted," Christy said Tuesday. The pattern of the damage "does raise the possibility it was a little more than a coincidence," he said.
"The March for Science should not simply be another way for us to express our opinions. It should not be an effort to pressure scientists and voters to agree with us. The scientific method is the best way we have of engaging in factual disputes."
Monica Medina is a Biden nominee and the wife of White House chief of staff Ron Klain. Monica Medina, the president’s nominee for assistant secretary of the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Science Affairs, wrote about the "environmental upside" of the pandemic in March 2020 and called for the economy to be restructured around "green" jobs.
Medina: "In the midst of the economic and health tragedy posed by the coronavirus pandemic, there is an unexpected bright side: the marked improvement in our environment as a result of the massive slowdown," Medina and her co-author, Our Daily Planet founder Miro Korenha, wrote in a Washington Post op-ed.
"With that comes a responsibility as well — to recover and rebuild in a way that helps deal with the challenge that will persist once the virus is under control," the pair continued.
Medina and her fellow author wrote that they were fearful that people would hurriedly get back to normal "instead of appreciating what we had been missing in our consumption-driven, plastic- and fossil-fuel-addicted world." ... The authors said that the recovery from COVID-19 pandemic was the time to make "structural changes" to the US economy and society.
