The latest controversy here at the University of Georgia is the governor's firing of state climatologist, and UGA faculty member, David Stooksbury. The firing was sudden - so sudden, in fact, that Stooksbury's faculty profile still lists him as the state climatologist. The firing was also mysterious - the governor's office gave Stooksbury, and the public, no notice, and the governor's spokesperson will give almost no reasoning behind the decision. Georgia is facing a record drought - again - and folks here on campus are worried about what this means about our leaders' priorities in the face of our climate challenges. For more on this, read political expert and commentator Tom Crawford's post on his Georgia Report blog.
