Stephen Schneider, Climate Prophet, 1945-2010

In a video from 1979, Stephen Schneider warns of the effects of CO2 emissions on Earth’s climate.

In a recent video, Schneider warns again of dire consequences if no action is taken on CO2 emissions, and he urges us to understand and adopt the precautionary principle:

It’s absolute nonsense to say that we need absolute proof, because we don’t do that in military decisions, we don’t do that in medical decisions, and we don’t do that in economic decisions. So why are we trying to do that in environmental decisions? Because special interests are against the precautionary principle.
