Job opening for the most important job in the world
The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) — the group that’s supposed to translate the international scientific consensus on climate change, so the threat can be accurately gauged and appropriately addressed — is looking for an information officer. The job posting is here (pdf).
Rightly or wrongly, autopsies of global-warming failures to date often indict scientists for their poor communication skills.
Regardless, to counter the well-funded counter-intelligence coming out of Exxon-Mobil and the White House, it sure would be nice to have a top-notch professional in the role. It is not much of an exaggeration to say that the future of the world may depend on it.
So how about helping find one? Know a mercenary PR professional with bulldog instincts who’s tired of selling widgets and keeps telling you how they really want to make a difference? Forward the posting: here’s their big chance. Job’s in Geneva — a beautiful city. Pay is $80k-$100k. I’ll even throw in Vote Solar t-shirts for the whole family if that will make a difference.
