Despite Tumult, NOAA’s Lubchenco Would Like 4 More Years

It’s been a tumultuous few years for marine biologist Jane Lubchenco, the head of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). She’s confronted an unprecedented and politically sensitive

oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, struggled to keep    expensive satellite programs on track, and butted heads with Congress, which sank her efforts to    reorganize NOAA’s climate science programs and appoint the agency’s  first chief scientist in nearly 2 decades.    Still, Lubchenco says she’d like to keep her job if President Barack Obama is reelected in November.
