Tonight is the first of two pledge drive shows. We really appreciate the support PNM gets from our listening audience. Thanks to all of you who pledged. But we also went a little further in our discussion about climate change. Last month, PNM’er Dennis Shaffer talked with two climate scientists at UW-Madison, Dan Vimont and Michael Notaro. Check out the posts and audio of those shows. But we thought if any threats might occur to climate research at UW-Madison from the legislature, considering the elimination of scientists at the DNR and the elimination of shared governance. Dan was most concerned about the changes to the Wisconsin Idea proposed by the legislature. Michael is a Senior Scientist, so does not belong to the UW-Madison faculty. His concern to climate research is the decrease in funding.
