Award Given to Researcher Who Laid Out Climate Change Consensus
Harvard Professor of the History of Science Naomi Oreskes will be awarded the sixth annual Stephen H. Schneider Award for Outstanding Climate Science Communication, Climate One at the Commonwealth Club announced recently.
The award is given to a natural or social scientist who has made extraordinary scientific contributions and communicated that knowledge to a broad public in a clear and compelling fashion. It was established in honor of Stephen Henry Schneider, one of the founding fathers of climatology, who died in 2010.
“I’m deeply honored to receive this award named after Stephen Schneider,” said Oreskes. “As Steve understood, communication is not just about the facts, it’s about conveying the meaning and significance of those facts — and this is what I have tried to do for climate science.”
