Steven Schneider: 1945-2010
Stephen Schneider, a giant of climate research, is dead. He died of an apparent heart attack today while landing in London after a flight from Stockholm. He was 65 years old.
I probably would not be writing and teaching on the subject were it not for Steve. For 25 years, starting when I was a nobody, aspiring science writer, he never hesitated to help me understand the science and its significance. And I know for a fact that I’m not the only one he helped.
I’m really going to miss him.
