Is the Science of Global Warming Settled Enough for Policy?
The late Stephen Schneider delivers an engaging talk on the science of climate change and it’s implications for policy. Schneider was great at explaining what the science of climate change is and at helping the average person weed through the absurd media discussion of the topic.
