Mr Rajendra Pachauri, IPCC:s ordförande sedan 2002, och generaldirektör för The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) sedan 2001, har nu dessutom skaffat sig en halvtidstjänst på Yale University, tipsar Lars G om. Han ska leda det nyetablerade Yale Climate and Energy Institute (YCEI).
De två saker som slår mig direkt att det måste banne mig vara första gången som någon fått ett Nobelpris för en halvtidstjänst och att det dessutom tycks vara oerhört ansträngande att vara Top Gun för IPCC. Pachauri verkar ju inte lida av någon tidsbrist.
Univeritetets president, Richard C. Levin, är utom sig av lycka: “We are fortunate to attract one of the world’s foremost climate change experts to lead this ambitious new institute. No one has a more comprehensive grasp of the science and policy of climate change or has done more to bring attention to this urgent issue.”
