U.N. Climate Chief to Step Down in July and Join. . . An Accounting Firm

Amid the tom-foolery of Climategate, the U.N.s climate chief is stepping down to join an accounting firm:
De Boer will leave on July 1 to join KPMG, the Secretariat for the U.N. framework convention on climate change (UNFCCC) said in a statement. He had led the agency since 2006 and his contract was expected to be extended in September.

"It was a difficult decision to make, but I believe the time is ripe for me to take on a new challenge, working on climate and sustainability with the private sector and academia," de Boer said in the statement.

Riiight. As if being the scandalized U.N. agency isn't enough, De Boer feels compelled to share his expertise and recipe for success with the private sector.

Can't wait.
