"A Deserved Award for Gavin Schmidt of Real Climate and NASA"

"Gavin Schmidt, the climate modeler at NASA and Columbia University who has long endured the slings and arrows that come with blogging on climate, has now gained a laurel for his efforts — the inaugural $25,000 Climate Communications Prize of the American Geophysical Union. [The geophysical union release is now posted.]"

"The award is well deserved. Real Climate, particularly through Schmidt’s data-centered and non-ideological posts, has developed into a must-track node in the Web conversation on climate science and its meaning to societies."
