Climate scientists exiled by Trump form new panelBloomberg.
Columbia Universityâ€™s Earth Institute has hired one of the committeeâ€™s researchers, Richard Moss of the University of Maryland, who will reconvene most of the former panel members and produce the same report. The shadow panel, announced recently, is the latest example of how President Donald Trumpâ€™s antipathy toward climate change research and policy is pushing scientists into internal exile.
As a visiting scientist, Moss and the panel will produce the report, which is an addendum to the quadrennial National Climate Assessment, released in early November, that focuses on local impacts of the warming world. The effort is expected to receive some financial backing from New York State as well as administrative support from the American Meteorological Society, a professional group based in Boston. The report will be available for public and peer review in June.
