This week in ag biotech…saying goodbye to a leader in climate science and why science and technology need to be driving agricultural policy
This week we mourn the loss of climate scientist Dr. Stephen Schneider and share why science and technology, not ideology, should guide agricultural practices worldwide.
Climate warrior Stephen Schneider is dead at 65
Stephen H. Schneider, Ph.D., passed away on Monday, July 19. He was an influential Stanford University climate scientist and wrote many books on the effects of climate change. He advised every Administration on climate policy since the 1970s and was passionate about educating the public about climate issues.
We met Dr. Schneider at the 2009 AAAS Conference and filmed a video interview with him.
