Gavin Schmidt | Climate Scientist and NOAA C&GC Postdoctoral Fellow

Gavin has just co-authored a new book "Climate Change: Picturing the Science" with Joshua Wolfe, a documentary and editorial photographer with GHG Photos. Read details about the project.


In this groundbreaking book, published by W.W. Norton & Company in April 2009, NASA climate scientist Gavin Schmidt and photographer Joshua Wolfe illustrate as never before the ramifications of shifting weather patterns for human society. Photographic spreads show us retreating glaciers, sinking villages in Alaska’s tundra, and drying lakes. The text follows adventurous scientists through the ice caps at the poles to the coral reefs of the tropical seas. Marshalling data spanning centuries and continents, the book affirms the headlines with cutting-edge research and visual records, including contributions from experts on atmospheric science, oceanography, paleoclimatology, technology, politics, and the polar regions. (Courtesy GHG Photos) review:

Gavin Schmidt is an actual (gasp) climate scientist, one who has published extensively in the peer reviewed science journals. He moderates the web site Al Gore's AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH is OK at a popular level. For those wanting more -- this is a good place to start.
