Today, we call on the science community to reach out to their elected US Senators to oppose the nomination of Barry Myers as head of NOAA.
Barry Myers has a track record of disregarding widespread sexual harassment allegations in his company AccuWeather. He has no science background. And he has spent decades attacking NOAA, the very agency he would be tasked with overseeing. He is unfit, he is morally corrupt, and he should not be confirmed.
All senators should be contacted but there are a handful of senators who should be especially targeted to oppose Barry Myers’ nomination, If you live in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Arizona, or Maine, tell your Senators to not confirm Barry Myers.
Alaska: Senator Lisa Murkowski - list of local offices and phone numbers.
Arizona: Martha McSally
Colorado: Senator Cory Gardner - list of local offices and phone numbers.
Maine: Senator Susan Collins - list of local offices and phone numbers.
