This is from a press release from the Union of Concerned Scientists:
Kevin Knobloch, the president of the Union of Concerned Scientists, will take a new post as chief of staff to Department of Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz. Knobloch will depart UCS on June 21 and start at DOE on June 24. Dr. Kathleen Rest, UCS’s executive director, will oversee the organization as it searches for a new president.
Statement from Kevin Knobloch:
“The bar for leaving my post is very high, and I would only do so for a call to public service of this order. The priorities of Secretary Moniz and the DOE, including reducing carbon emissions, expanding clean renewable energy, and reducing the threat of nuclear weapons and fissile material, have been passions throughout my career. This is a strong opportunity to improve the health and safety of all Americans."
