Mourning the loss of a friend July 19, 2010 : 4:04 PM

I was saddened to learn today of the passing of my good friend, Steve Schneider. A prolific researcher and author, co-founder of the journal Climatic Change, and a wonderful communicator, his contributions to the advancement of climate science will be sorely missed. My heart goes out to his wife, Terry, and to his family, colleagues, and staff.
