WCRP Director David Carlson resigns

David Carlson, Director of the secretariat of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), SPARC’s parent organisation, resigns from WCRP.

In his message to the WCRP community he states that "even as we apply our skills and tools to careful detection, quantification and prediction of (climate) change we remain too firmly wedded to existing structures and acronyms….We must persistently question our internal structures just as much as we persistently press for improved models or improved understanding". David also encourages WCRP to pay greater attention to our carbon impact – in research but also in our practices and working modalities amongst others.
