Before reflecting on a range of things, let me start by answering a question that may have popped into your head: I have no plans to join the Trump administration ha ha. Technically, my resignation is a retirement event, since I am on the Georgia State Teachers Retirement System, and Outspoken essays 1922 need to retire from Georgia Tech to get my pension although I am a few years shy of So, Outspoken essays 1922 have retired from Georgia Tech, and I have no intention of seeking another academic or administrative position in a university or government agency.
Why did I resign my tenured faculty position? The superficial reason is that I want to do other things, and no longer need my university salary.
This opens up an opportunity for Georgia Tech to make a new hire see advert. The deeper reasons have to do with my growing disenchantment with universities, the academic field of climate science and scientists.
At first, I thought the changes I saw at Georgia Tech were due to a change in the higher administration President, Provost, etc. But then I started to realize that academia and universities nationwide were undergoing substantial changes. I came across a recent article that expresses part of what is wrong: Universities are becoming like mechanical nightingales.
So why not try to change the system from the inside? Well, this is not the battle I want to fight, apart from any realistic assessment of being able to shift the ponderous beast from within.
How young scientists are to navigate all this is beyond me, and it often becomes a battle of scientific integrity versus career suicide I have worked through these issues with a number of skeptical young scientists.
Let me relate an interaction that I had with a postdoc about a month ago.
She wanted to meet me, as an avid reader of my blog. WOW, a scientist that knows the difference! I advised her to keep her head down and keep doing the research that she thinks interesting and important, and to stay out of the climate debate UNLESS she decides to dig in and pursue it intellectually.
Personal opinions about the science and political opinions about policies that are sort of related to your research expertise are just that — personal and political opinions. Selling such opinions as contributing to a scientific consensus is very much worse than a joke. Stepping back from all this, I reminded myself that I was a tenured faculty member — in principle I could do whatever I wanted.
Why go to the extra effort to publish papers, wrestling with reviewers who usually know less than you do about your topic not to mention their biaseshaving to pay to get an article published some months in the future, so that maybe people will read it?
Not to mention the broader issues related to coping with the university bureaucracy, government funding, etc. Once you detach from the academic mindset, publishing on the internet makes much more sense, and the peer review you can get on a technical blog is much more extensive.
But peer review is not really the point; provoking people to think in new ways about something is really the point. Do I pretend to have any answers to all this? No, but I hope I am provoking students and scientists to think outside of their little bubble.
I am interested in figuring out new and better ways to apply weather and climate data, weather forecast information and future regional climate scenarios to supporting real world decision making to manage risks and associated with weather and climate variability.
