Trump Transition Probe of Energy Dept. Involves the UC-Related Labs - Part 2
News reports today suggest that former Texas governor Rick Perry to head the Dept. of Energy (DOE).* If this info is correct - it has not been confirmed by the Trump transition - it underlines the issue raised in an earlier posting on this blog.** Some of the climate change researchers who may be targeted by the incoming administration are at the DOE labs in which the University of California plays a management role.
So we again ask, what steps are the Regents and UCOP prepared to take to protect such researchers? Will they address this issue at their January meeting?
Or will they dance to whatever tune comes out of the Energy Dept.?
