The White House relocates Climate Change Report Coordinator Betsy Weatherhead under Trump

The White House has removed experienced atmospheric scientist Betsy Weatherhead from her role in leading the US National Climate Assessment and reassigned her to the US Geological Survey, the Washington Post reports. Weatherhead was in charge of the US Government’s definitive report on the effects of climate change by President Trump’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) director Kelvin Droegemeier last November. Biden’s OSTP officials have decided to return her to the USGS, the post reports. The appointment of Weatherhead has surprised many science policy experts, but is willing to accept the scientific consensus that climate change is occurring and pose a serious threat to the planet and the economy, Post reports. There is. Despite years of experience and mainstream views in this area, Weatherhead has clashed with other federal authorities in 13 agencies involved in the US Global Change Research Program to coordinate reports, according to the Post. Weatherhead wanted to attract more authors from the private sector and increase the number of chapters on options for mitigating and adapting climate change, including more perspectives. She also “historically has placed a great deal of emphasis on communicating scientific uncertainty.” Rich Sorkin, CEO of Juniper Intelligence, one of the former bosses of Weatherhead’s private sector, said. He called her “one of the world’s experts on uncertainty” and speculated that it might have resonated with the Trump administration. The Biden administration has not yet selected a replacement for Weatherhead or a new director of the Global Change Research Program. In November, Trump dismissed former director and career appointed Michael Cooperberg and replaced him with David Regates, who refused to consensus on climate change. Not skeptical of climate change, Drogemier relocated Legate and another Trump political appointer, Ryan Maue, in January after contributing an unapproved treatise that casts doubt on climate change, and Biden takes office Both men resigned from the government a few days before.
