An interview with climatologist Stephen Schneider

On Monday we reported the death of Stanford climatologist Stephen Schneider. In his memory, I thought I’d re-post this video interview, shot at last year’s climate change meeting in Copenhagen. In the interview, Schneider tells Nature’s Olive Heffernan about his recent book ‘Science as a Contact Sport’ and explains why in his view, keeping global warming below 2 degrees is unrealistic.

    Thank you for this excellent interview! I have been a Steve Schneider Groupie since September 2004 when three of us interviewed him his in preparation for keynoting the first Palo Alto Business Goes Green/Chamber of Commerce event. My latest project with him is Painting to Change the World. Click on the link below and you can see both an interview with Steve and a clip for our June 12th “launch.” All of us need to double and triple our activism to meet the climate change challenges that Steve spoke about so eloquently.
