Did anyone hear on the radio yesterday (Jan 3, 2013) a scientist talking about global warming?

Asked by skfinkel (12884 points ) January 4th, 2013

He talked about ways to protect the oceans, warming of the planet, etc. and named an organization of grass roots workers. Did anyone hear this interview and/or know the name of the organization? I think the occasion of this talk was an award the scientist was being given, in the name of Steven something. Also, he is writing an easier to understand book on global warming for his grand daughter—Sophie.
I would love to find out more about this man and this grassroots organization. Thanks

The scientist in question is probably James Hansen. The award he won was the Stephen Schneider Award for Climate Science Communication, given by Climate One.

James Hansen himself works at NASA.
