The award jurors are Professor Larry Goulder (Chair of the Economics Department, Stanford University), Dr. Ben Santer (Climate Researcher, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory), and Bud Ward (Editor, The Yale Forum on Climate Change & the Media). The jury solicited nominations from a broad spectrum of anonymous experts in the fields of science and communication. The jury unanimously decided that Dr. James Hansen exemplifies the rare ability to be both a superb scientist and powerful communicator in the mold of Stephen Schneider.
In choosing Dr. Hansen, juror Ben Santer said "Throughout his entire career, Dr. Hansen has been an honest broker of information on the science of climate change. His focus has always been firmly fixed on performing the best-possible science, and then letting the chips fall where they may."
Regarding Dr. Hansen's communication prowess, juror Bud Ward said "Jim Hansen's diligence and stick-to-it-ive-ness in informing the public while under intense "enemy fire" makes him a most deserving winner of a prize honoring the late Steve Schneider."
"Steve Schneider stood out not only for his quick mind and elocution, but for his courage in speaking out even when fellow scientists did not appreciate it," said Dr. Hansen.
Dr. Hansen will receive the award in San Francisco on Tuesday, December 4th at The Commonwealth Club of California.
