Climatologist Stephen Schneider on Bill Maher

For decades, Professor Stephen Schneider – a climate scientist at Stanford University – researched and spoke out about the need to sharply and quickly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. He was one of the truly important voices in climate science. When Prof. Schneider died last month, the climate change movement lost someone who, according to Real Climate, “was instrumental in focusing scientific, political, and public attention on one of the major challenges facing humanity – the problem of human-caused climate change.”

Here is a clip of him appearing on the Bill Maher show in 2008.
