Stephen Schneider: Science and Distortion


This short film by San Francisco filmmaker Stephen Thomson pays tribute to our dear friend, the eminent climate scientist Stephen Schneider (1945-2010).

Thank you to Peter Sinclair at the excellent Climate Denial Crock of the Week for calling this to our attention and providing the following information: The video was screened before a live audience by Climate One at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on December 6, 2011, as the introduction to an event honoring Stephen Schneider and presenting an award in his name to Richard Alley, Professor of Geosciences and Associate of the EMS Environment Institute at Penn State University. It is being presented again on December 8 at the American Geophysical Union fall meeting in San Francisco.

    It seems to me that this film clip would be immensely useful as course material for high school and college Earth Science classes, or even political science or a class on the science:policy interface. Steve really understood this dynamic so well and articulated it so perfectly, so often. His words and writings can and should continue to be instrumental in improving critical thinking, among especially young people trying to sort all of this out. Many many thanks for posting this, I will be certain to pass it along using the various social media, tweet/twitter, FB, and so on.
