CMS and ATLAS present their results, showing evidence of a new particle of a mass and signature identifying it as the Higgs boson. But more research is needed to ensure this is exactly the boson predicted by the Standard Model.
A year in the making, this video pays tribute to a critical scientific and academic figure in postmodern history: Climatologist and Stanford Professor Stephen Schneider. Schneider explains the problems facing the public's understanding of climate change and consequently the lack of action in Washington legislatively.
This video was screened before a live audience by Climate One of the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Dec 6, 2011 as the introduction to an event honoring Stephen Schneider and presenting an award in his name to Richard Alley, Professor of Geosciences and Associate of the EMS Environment Institute.
This video was also partially screened by Ben Santer at the 2011 AGU (American Geophysicists Union) Conference held in San Francisco (http://revkin.tumblr.com/post/14094189165/ben-santer-on-steve-schneider-and-defending)
