Scientists who work on climate change are already in jeopardy, according to a new study published in Science.
The study, conducted by a group of leading climate change scientists, found that the number of climate change research jobs in the United States is likely to decline by 40 percent between 2019 and 2025.
That would be the biggest decline in the field since 1990, when the number was only about 7 percent.
The authors also found that while there are now more climate change-related PhDs in the U.S., the number is also likely to rise in the years ahead.
The report points to several factors, including the fact that more and more researchers are starting to focus on climate science, and that more researchers in the academic climate sciences community are beginning to work on the same problems.
“I think that the big issue right now is that there are a lot of PhDs that are doing the work in the climate science field that they were trained to do, and it’s not necessarily being rewarded,” said lead author Mark Serreze, a professor of atmospheric science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
The researchers used a variety of indicators to estimate the impact of Trump’s new climate policy, including how many climate scientists were trained in their field and how many of them received their PhDs while they were still in school.
The survey found that, by 2027, the number will drop by 40.5 percent, and the number working in climate science will decrease by 25 percent.
In 2020, the U,S.
population of climate scientists increased by 7 percent to more than 7 million.
The number of jobs in climate research was about the same, however, and only 3 percent of the work was in the fields of climate science.
“The future of climate research is going to be a little bit cloudy,” said Serrez, who was not involved in the study.
“There’s going to continue to be an influx of new researchers in our field, but we don’t yet know what their contribution is going do to the total number of people working in the area.”
The survey also showed that the percentage of PhD candidates receiving their Ph.
D.s while still in their undergraduate years increased by 5 percent from 2014 to 2015.
“It’s hard to see a scenario where that’s going anywhere,” said Jason Boxall, a doctoral candidate in atmospheric sciences at the University of Maryland and an author of the report.
“That’s not going to happen for quite some time.”
The decline in climate scientists’ research jobs is especially concerning given that, as the researchers point out, there is now an increasing number of PhD students who are working on climate research.
“We’ve already seen that climate change is being used to advance the understanding of climate variability and climate change impacts,” said Boxall.
“But it seems like a lot more work is being done in the lab to understand the mechanisms of those changes.
That could have some very positive implications for the future of the field.”
The authors of the study said that while it is likely that there will be a decline in academic climate research, it is also possible that the increase in the number and size of PhD programs could also have an impact.
“What I find troubling is that, for the first time, we have a number of programs that are now going into the research pipeline, and these programs are all going to have a very big impact on the number in the research pool,” said Mark Serresz, a co-author on the report and a professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
“For the most part, the increase is going down, but there are lots of programs in the pipeline that are just starting to see the effects.”
“There is a very high level of uncertainty about what is going on,” said Matt Ridley, a research associate professor at MIT and co-director of the Climate Solutions Initiative at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.
“You can see it with the number that are working in research and in the public domain, and there is a lot that can happen.
But the more important question is what’s going on in the data, in the models, and in some of the actual research.”
Serrezes study also found some signs that climate research itself may be taking a hit.
“A lot of climate modelers are doing their own research,” said Ridley.
The study also highlighted the impact that climate science research is having on the broader climate research community. “
Even though there are more climate models now, there are still so many models that are out there, and many of those models have not been designed for the climate change problem that we face today.”
The study also highlighted the impact that climate science research is having on the broader climate research community.
“Climate science has been one of the great engines for advancing climate science for decades, but its been hard to maintain the high standards required to advance climate science,”
