As many as 110 out of 140 positions at the atmosphere and oceans division at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) will be cut, Larry Marshall, the agency’s chief executive, told staff Friday. Another 120 positions will be cut from the land and water program. Across the agency, 350 climate staff will be moved into new roles unrelated to their specialty.

“The question has been answered, and the new question is what do we do about it, and how can we find solutions for the climate we will be living with,” he wrote.
They've done their jobs, time to move on.

I think I see the problem: 350 people have been told to turn off the computer, stand up, and actually do something.

Not as bad as it seems, in my eyes. Sometimes the job disappears because we did it too well, sometimes it disappears for other reasons. Talented people will find good jobs elsewhere. Life goes on.
