Today’s Action: Oppose Barry Myers (a #MeToo dumpster fire) for NOAA administrator

This is the third time Trump has tried to make Barry Myers administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Myers is the former chief executive of his family’s company, AccuWeather, a for-profit business in direct competition with NOAA…except that it uses NOAA data to make its profits. In fact, Myers has spent decades trying to block NOAA from releasing weather information to the public…because he wants to charge you for it instead.

NOAA, by the way, is funded by taxpayers…so the weather updates and storm warnings should absolutely should be free to the public. But Myers’ conflict of interest was not even addressed in Senate committee, where Republicans pushed him through without a debate.

The other BIG issue not addressed in committee: AccuWeather’s serious #MeToo problem with sexual harassment.

Call or email your Senators and tell them Barry Myers is a bad choice for NOAA administrator. His conflict of interest and lack of scientific background make him a ludicrous choice for the position…and his relationship to chronic sexual harassment makes him an actual menace.

After promising his followers he’d ‘drain the swamp,’ Trump has succeeded in making the swamp stinkier than ever. Myers is the next in line of Trump nominations who favor privatization of public resources…another rich friend trying to get richer off the backs of taxpayers.

And his Trumpian history with women is appalling. Myers’ company has paid $290,000 to a whopping 39 women who reported sexual harassment at AccuWeather. This not only needs to be opposed, but elevated with the full volume of the #MeToo movement – not just for the sake of those women, but future NOAA employees facing the same hostile environment under Myers’ leadership.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they reject Barry Myers for NOAA administrator. Remind them that his conflict of interest and decades of lobbying against NOAA is bad enough – and his company’s pungent history of sexual harassment is a non-starter.
