Scientist Stephen Schneider on the battle to save the climate
Next month, representatives from countries all over the world will gather in Copenhagen, Denmark to create a new climate accord to replace the expiring Kyoto Protocol. But the U.S. has yet to come up with a final plan to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Last week the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee advanced a bill that would limit emissions of the pollutants that accumulate in the atmosphere, trap heat and cause global warming.
Stephen Schneider studies climate change at Stanford University and has been researching climate and contributing to the climate policy debate for decades. His new book is called Science as a Contact Sport: Inside the Battle to Save Earthâ€™s Climate.comments powered by Disqus
