Discussion Topic: Obama Picks Marine Biologist Lubchenco To Head NOAA
By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love
From the Washington Post:
President-elect Barack Obama has tapped Oregon State University professor Jane Lubchenco, one of the nation's most prominent marine biologists, to head the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Lubchenco, a conservationist who… is a vocal proponent of curbing greenhouse gases linked to global warming,… has criticized the agency in the past for not doing enough to curb overfishing.
What do you think? Good choice?
