Acclaimed climate expert Cicerone joins Lehrer on Amp stage

Imagine it’s early 2001. The new George W. Bush administration is in office, with rumors circulating about its skepticism of global warming in particular and science in general. You get a call from the National Academy of Sciences. They want you to chair a study on the state of climate change. The White House is asking for the study, and they want a report in four weeks.

Ralph J. Cicerone got that call. NAS president since 2005, Cicerone is this morning’s lecturer as the Jim Lehrer-moderated examination of “What Voters Need to Know” continues.
