Bryan Shuman is a Wyoming Excellence Chair in Geology and Geophysics at the University of Wyoming where he has taught since 2007. He currently serves as director of the University of Wyoming-National Park Service Research Station at the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park. Shuman’s research focuses on long-term changes in climate and their consequences for water, ecosystems, and people. This work has involved studies of the geological record of hydrologic and ecological change since the last ice age across North America, especially Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, the Midwest, and New England. Shuman was inspired to pursue this work when hiking the length of the Continental Divide from Canada to Mexico as well as the Appalachian Trail in the 1990s, and subsequently watching these mountain landscapes change.
Withholding assistance at this critical time indicates to Cubans, Cuban Americans and the world that the Biden Administration is not really interested in the well-being of the Cuban people, despite statements to the contrary.
