Scientists, come one and all

Wednesday, April 20, 2016 by Eva Ruth Moravec

City Council Member Don Zimmerman gave his peers a sneak peek on Tuesday into what’s got his goat this week: climate change, if you believe it. At a Council work session, Zimmerman said he planned to propose an amendment to Item 17 on Thursday’s Council agenda. The item authorizes a $116,000, 36-month contract with ATMOS Research and Consulting for “an evaluation of climate change impacts on hydrology.” Zimmerman said his amendment – which couldn’t yet be found online as of press time – will ask that half of the contract cash go to scientists who don’t believe in climate change.
