Pres­id­ent Obama is los­ing his top cli­mate-change ad­viser to the private sec­tor, Re­u­ters re­ports, as Heath­er Zichal plans to leave the ad­min­is­tra­tion in a few weeks.

The 37-year-old has been with Obama since his first pres­id­en­tial cam­paign and helped mold his policies on green­house-gas emis­sions. The White House did not name a suc­cessor.

Zichal pre­vi­ously served as cli­mate ad­viser for then-Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., both be­fore and after his pres­id­en­tial bid in 2004. Na­tion­al Journ­al pro­filed Zichal earli­er this year.
