Nominate Judith Curry as the next Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change

Update: In the first 16 hours of this petition’s life, 525 signatures were obtained. The challenge from the administration is to get 100,000 signatures in 30 days, at which point they will ‘consider’ it. It’s  great progress for the first day–but there’s a long way to go. If you haven’t signed it, do so now. If you have, tell a friend. Heck, tell a fiend.

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Nominate Judith Curry as the next Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an organization created by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environmental Programme, will elect a new chair this year. The post is currently being filled by an interim chair following the resignation of Rajendra Pachauri.

The United States has currently nominated Dr. Chris Field. We petition the current administration to withdraw his nomination and instead nominate Judith Curry.

Judith A. Curry is an American climatologist and former chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Her integrity, understanding of the science and related policy issues make her a better choice, for the IPCC and American interests as well.

  1. I like her too much to petition her for the thankless job

  2. In this day and age, with a Prewsidential Adminstration running an office dedicated to naming and hurting climate skeptics in an organized camapign of intimidation, no thanks.

  3. Good choice Tom. Just signed

  4. That has a snowball’s chance in….

  5. I signed it, but I have been optimistic about much lately.

  6. I just signed and sent an e-mail to every American in my contact list asking them to sign. I’ve been following Dr. Curry since about 2010. Tried to get her on the Charlie Rose show but he would have none of it. He had Michael Mann instead. Asshole! He was probably chicken of the feedback.
