Gina McCarthy, the national climate adviser for the White House, announced her resignation on Friday, Fox News informed.

Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, confirmed to reporters on Friday that McCarthy is actually leaving her position.

According to Jean-Pierre, the McCarthy has taken the lead in making one of the biggest investments to combat climate change.

In a press statement issued shortly after the news broke, Biden bragged about McCarthy’s achievements while in office.

McCarthy’s resignation has been expected for some time; there have been whispers of her leaving since the beginning of the year.

McCarthy debunked rumors that she was stepping down in April by posting on social media.

Before Biden nominated McCarthy, a Massachusetts native, to oversee domestic climate policy, she served as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency under President Barack Obama.

The former president of the United States, Donald Trump, has reversed some of his decisions, notably his decision to leave the World Health Organization and the Paris Climate Agreement.

McCarthy will step down as the nation’s top climate counselor on September 16.

McCarthy will be promoted to the rank of deputy assistant to the president and deputy national climate advisor Ali Zaidi.

John Podesta, the founder of the Center for America Progress, will also take on a new position as Senior Advisor to the President for Clean Energy Innovation and Implementation.

In 2016, Podesta, the former director of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, had his emails taken in a phishing scheme.
