This exchange in “tips” lead me to think maybe folks DID need a place to discuss the present crop of “also rans and near nobody” that we’ve got trying for the biggest job in the world:
Chiefio, I am sorry you are not in Texas, because Rick Perry, the one candidate who has begun to say, seriously, the right things, needs lots of help and a quick science-study that can be communicated to large numbers of people. Can you add that one, E.M.?

I did some desk top research on Perry and found out this guy changes his opinion quicker than a kameleon changes color.
I don’t trust the guy for a bit.
Think he will be a bigger disappointment than Obama.
He was Gore’s campaign manager and a member of the democratic party when Gore pushed his AGW doctrine and duing his Texas day’s he has been a stout promoter of the UN Agenda 21 crap.
Please do your homework.
We can’t afford to pick the wrong President two times on a role.
I think Perry’s past has disqualified for any future presidency.

Ron, this is not an appropriate place to comment re your “desk top research” other than to say you might be reading mainly those with more pure or extreme views. My only point here is that if any serious politicians are running, and Perry is one of the few with a long record and much support, and are willing to speak the truth about “climate change”, everyone of them should get “serious help” re the science from those who are excellent communicators.
So, to answer the question put to me:
I’m available to be “Science Adviser and Technobabble Translator” to any politician who:
A) Needs it. (That is, ALL of them ;-)
B) Has an open mind. (That is, near as I can tell, near the empty set.)
C) Willing to take the time to learn. (That, I believe, leaves out the rest…)
D) Wants to pay me for my time. ( I have a job now, so can’t just fly off and leave it without cause…)
I’ve got the credentials and skill set to explain hard stuff in non-hard ways to “folks with attitude and ego”… but “they have to want to know”… (“Change” we’ve had enough of already ;-)
So, in conclusion: THIS is an appropriate place to comment on the political events of the day… and the politicians trying to get out in front of The Parade …
