There are folks Jeb Bush should talk to on climate change

San Antonio Express-News - It makes me nervous when someone who might become president of the United States says the science on climate change is “convoluted” and that it is “arrogant” to assert that humans are the primary cause of global warming.

The bottom line is that I think Bush is getting bad information. That's why I want to make the following offer: Citizens' Climate Lobby will arrange, at our expense, to give him a private briefing with climate scientist Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, who was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People. She is an associate professor in the public administration program at Texas Tech University and director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech, part of the South-Central Climate Science Center.

Trust me, there is not an intellectually arrogant bone in her body, as anyone she has ever spoken with her will attest. She's also an evangelical Christian who sees that faith and science are not incompatible. Any conversation with her is both enlightening and delightful.
