Every new report on the state of our climate seems to cause a shift in the battle lines between scientists and politicians. Caught in the middle of this raging conflict, the public stands to suffer the greatest consequences unless the truth about climate change is no longer obscured. Robert Zimmerman sounds a clarion call to scientists, politicians, and the public to demand the straight facts about climate science in this interview with George Noory originally webcast June 9, 2014.
Robert Zimmerman has won many awards for his articles and books on issues of science, history, technology, and culture. His most recent book, The Universe in a Mirror: the Saga of the Hubble Space Telescope and the Visionaries Who Built It, tells the story of the men and women who designed, built and used the Hubble Space Telescope.
