On March 21, Distinguished Professor Noel Cressie visited Capitol Hill as part of the 7th annual Climate Science Day. Professor Cressie had the opportunity to discuss climate science issues with policy staff members of the Ohio Congressional delegation. “My pitch was to be a resource for them in matters of the environment and climate-change impacts, which I think is how we can make a real difference.”
Climate Science Day is sponsored by the American Statistical Association and other scientific societies. The event puts scientists together with lawmakers and their staff to discuss climate science research. See the story from the Amstat News at magazine.amstat.org (story starts on page 14).
