Wysham is a fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies. She is a content adviser to the
short film "The Story of Cap and Trade"
Wysham said today: "As global average temperatures rise, there will
be more moisture in the atmosphere causing major storms such as the
record-breaking snowstorm that just brought Washington, D.C., to its
knees if not its senses. Some ignorant politicians interpret the record
snowfall as yet another reason to question the science of climate change
rather than take action on it." She just wrote the piece "Is Our
Democracy Becoming a Joke?"
