Proof is hiring a data-minded investigative reporter for a six-month contract to investigate the climate impacts of the Internet sector. The reporter will investigate data-driven answers to questions like, are Big Tech companies accurately counting their carbon emissions? Have carbon offsets really cut down on industry emissions? And, how do we quantify the energy costs of AI? The goal is not to explain different sides of policy questions, but to follow a scientific process for reaching defensible, transparent conclusions.
The journalist will be expected to produce three separate investigations and accompanying detailed methodologies. The reporter will work jointly with an editor to produce video scripts describing the investigative findings.
