Kelvin Droegemeier is one of three finalist candidates in the LSU Presidential Search. Don't let his PhD in Meteorology fool you-- he has used it only to undermine the last 30 years of climate change research. In his own words, "is there a tipping point for climate change? I don't know." Droegemeier has, at every turn, highlighted the uncertainty of climate models and has publicly waffled on his personal perspective. Whether or not he is a true skeptic doesn't matter--he has given climate deniers the foothold they need to resist essential climate policy. We CANNOT let this happen at LSU.

As Former Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), he has propped up Donald Trump as a "science advisor". He took no action against the US withdrawal from the Paris Agreement and has remained silent about whether or not rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere pose a threat to the American people. 

The long and short of it is that we can do better than this for our next LSU President. Actions of the next decade will be crucial in determining the outcome of the planet and its inhabitants, and we need a President who will be progressive on such pressing issues. PLEASE SIGN TO REMOVE DROEGEMEIER FROM THE POOL OF LSU PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES!
