Climate change activists eye possible soft spot in new World Bank president

The World Bank yesterday chose Dartmouth College president, physician and public health pioneer Dr. Jim Yong Kim as its next president, sparking hope among environmental activists that he might open the door to a new era in energy development. The nomination of Kim, a Korean-American whose mold-breaking resume includes neither banking nor political experience, by President Obama last month came as a surprise to many. He will succeed Robert Zoellick in July to become the World Bank's 12th successive American leader since the global development institution's creation at Bretton Woods in 1944.
