Tell the Board of Regents: Don't Hire a Climate Change Denier to Run New Mexico State University
The New Mexico Board of Regents is voting on Monday on who will be the next president of New Mexico State University. One of the final candidates is Garrey Carruthers, the former Republican governor and a climate-change denier who ran a tobacco-industry front group for years. For the university to be led by someone who won't even acknowledge the basic reality of climate change would be unconscionable.
