Today is Kyla Mandel’s final day working for DeSmog UK, and the whole team would like to express our heartfelt thanks for her incredible work over the past three years.

Kyla joined DeSmog UK in November 2014, shortly after the project launched. She became Editor in March 2016.

In that time, she broke many notable stories including how Exxon lobbied the UK government to slow the transition on EVs, how a transatlantic network of lobbyists was pushing climate disinformation and for Brexit, and revealing fossil fuel donations to the UK’s main political parties in the lead-up to last year’s general election.

Kyla was also instrumental in establishing DeSmog UK’s Disinformation Database, growing our editorial and reporting team, and significantly expanding the breadth and reach of our coverage.

She is moving on to become an Associate Editor on the climate team at Think Progress. We wish her all the best for the future, and look forward to her next scoop.

Anti-science rhetoric and special interests have pushed us to the edge of climate chaos. But just as quantum physics disrupted our view of matter and energy, quantum social change disrupts our beliefs about what’s possible, how fast, and by whom.
