Are you looking for a job? Well, good news. The New York Times is searching for a Global Warming (now called "Climate Change" when the warming bit didn't happen) editor. Anyone can apply. Here is the happy announcement from the Times:
Drone footage that shows Greenland melting away. Long narratives about the plight of climate refugees, from Louisiana to Bolivia and beyond. A series on the California drought. Color-coded maps that show how hot it could be in 2060.
The New York Times is a leader in covering climate change. Now The Times is ramping up its coverage to make the most important story in the world even more relevant, urgent and accessible to a huge audience around the globe.
We are looking for an editor to lead this dynamic new group. We want someone with an entrepreneurial streak who is obsessed with finding new ways to connect with readers and new ways to tell this vital story.
The coverage should encompass: the science of climate change; the politics of climate debates; the technological race to find solutions; the economic consequences of climate change; and profiles of fascinating characters enmeshed in the issues.
Are you interested? If so, here is how to apply:
Applicants should submit a resume, examples of previous work, and a memo outlining their vision for coverage to Dean Baquet and Sam Dolnick by Sept. 19. This vision is the most important part of the application. It should be specific and set clear priorities.
Okay, it is a pretty safe guess that if your vision includes any part of the heretical idea that the sun is the major cause of warming on Earth, your application will be immediately tossed into the trash. If the Times were really interested in hiring a weather/climate expert who has the best reputation for predicting the weather, they would look no further than Piers Corbyn of Great Britain who has a proven track record for accurate long range forecasts.
Unfortunately, although Corbyn has the far left politics (his brother is British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn) to fit in with the rest of the Times, he has one huge disqualifier: he considers the man made climate change theory to be junk science as you can see in the following video:
Of course there is no way that the New York Times would even consider Corbyn for their position. However, it would be interesting to see if their new Climate Change editor could match him in betting on his own long range weather prognostications as Corbyn did, using observations of solar conditions, with the London bookmakers. So whoever becomes the new editor, put your money where your mouth is and let us see how you stack up against the British Global Warming heretic.
