       Center interim Director Dr. William (Bill) Lewis testified at an oversight hearin g b e f o r e t h e
       House Committee on Natural Resources on July 31. The topic was “Crisis of Co n f i d e n c e :
       The Political Influence of the Bush Administration on Agency Science and Decis i o n -
       Making”. Dr. Lewis testified about his experience as chair of the Committee on E n d a n g e r e d
       and Threatened Fishes in the Klamath River Basin (“Klamath Committee”).



       The U.S. Climate Change Science Program published “The North American Carb o n B u d g e t
       and Implications for the Global Carbon Cycle.” Lisa Dilling served as co-lead of t h e a u t h o r
       team. The report analyzes the amounts of carbon emitted by industry sector, the a m o u n t
       absorbed naturally and how these amounts relate to the global carbon budget inf l u e n c e d b y
       other regions of the globe, with particular attention given to characterizing the c e r t a i n t y
       and uncertainty with which these budget elements are known. Lisa briefed Con g r e s s a n d
       members of the media in conjunction with the report’s release.

       In honor of the 50th anniversary of the appointment of Dr. James Killian, the fi r s t
       presidential science adviser, Roger Pielke, Jr., had a commentary in the Novemb e r 1 5 i s s u e
       of Nature titled “Who Has the Ear of the President”. He also appeared on Natio n a l P u b l i c
       Radio to discuss the Nature article and the past 50 years of science advice.

       Roger Pielke, Jr’s Nature commentary, Dangerous Assumptions (with Tom Wigl e y a n d
       Chris Green), generated significant international attention since its publication o n A p r i l 3 .
       It has been cited, referred to or commented on at least 68 times by media around t h e w o r l d .




       Lisa Dilling, who has been with the Center for the past few years as a CIRES vi s i t i n g

       the CU homepage and various housekeeping sites, only four CU sites receive mo r e w e b
       traffic than Sciencepolicy. Sciencepolicy received more traffic than the comput e r s c i e n c e
       and business school sites.




       Former CIRES director and current faculty affiliate Susan K. Avery, who played a n
       instrumental role in foundi ng the Center, was named President and Director of t h e
       Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.




       Faculty affiliate Paul Komor shared in the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, awarded to A l G o r e
       and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
