This position will follow research on attribution of extreme events, environmental, biological and health effects of global warming and new developments in global weather. The reporter will serve as a climate science policy watchdog, and - along with our broader climate team - help hold federal and state agencies and Congress accountable.  The reporter will also follow major international science policy, such as IPCC reports and multilateral agreements, and occasionally attend international meetings.”
