Another Prominent Republican Bucks the Party Line on Climate Change

See today’s Op-Ed in the Washington Post by Sherwood Boehlert, who was the congressional representative for New York’s 24th district from 1983 to 2007.



  1. The Dunning-Kruger challenged hoards are out in force. Eager to express their ignorance of climate science to the world.

    It’s all very depressing.

  2. Recall that Boehlert was heavily involved in the Barton/WhitfieldWegman mess in 2005/2006:

    a) When Barton&Whitfield hassled Mann, Bradley, Hughes, Boelet pushed back, told them to ask for an NRC panel. NAS President Cicerone offered one,they refused, went off to get Wegman.

    b) Later on, Boehlert requested the NRC panel run by Gerald North.

    Too bad he retired; scientists I’ve heard speak of him all thought he was a friend to science.
