Nobel laureate, renowned climate scientist and good friend of former US vice-president Al Gore, Dr Stephen Schneider, was verbally attacked today during a press conference at the United Nations Climate Talks in Copenhagen. He was shaking visibly after the confrontation.
Since he is still alive, Schneider may care to reflect how unlucky he was that it was a verbal attack. His religion is distinctly lacking its quota of "climate martyrs". He could have gone down in history as its first.
