Too Much Noise? How Misleading Data Warps Climate Debate

Complete video at: Stephen Schneider, an environmental studies professor at Stanford University, debunks the idea that recent weather trends like the snowstorm in D.C. are signs that disprove global warming. He argues that climate change opponents use "bad" science, such as cherry-picking weather trends, to skew results. ----- This event was produced by swissnex San Francisco and part of the U.S.-wide program ThinkSwiss-Brainstorm the Future. As society struggles to find clean, affordable, and reliable energy alternatives to meet the energy challenge and mitigate global climate change, it is important that scientists and policy-makers around the world work together to explore solutions. To present the Swiss perspective on sustainable energy alternatives for the future, professor Konstantinos Boulouchos of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) will share the complex interaction between the energy and climate change challenges and provide insight into the ongoing debate surrounding long-term strategic targets like the 2,000-watt versus the one-ton CO2 society. Joining Professor Boulouchos is internationally recognized U.S. climate scientist, Stephen Schneider of Stanford University. - Swissnex San Francisco Stephen H. Schneider is the Melvin and Joan Lane Professor for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies at Stanford University, a professor of biological sciences, and professor (by courtesy) of civil and environmental engineering. He is also a senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford. Internationally recognized for research, policy analysis, and outreach in climate change, he focuses on climate change science, integrated assessment of ecological and economic impacts of human-induced climate change, and identifying viable climate policies and technological solutions. He has consulted with federal agencies and White House staff in several administrations.
