About Chris Field
Chris Field is the Perry L. McCarty Director of the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and the Melvin and Joan Lane Professor for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies at Stanford University. He is the author of more than 300 scientific publications on diverse topics surrounding climate change, including climate modeling, developing renewable energy systems, and involvement of community organizations to minimize climate-related risk. He sees fixing climate change in very much the same light as President Kennedy’s 1961 challenge to put a man on the moon within a decade, …“it’s not that a sacrifice was required … but … a country … committed to make some important discoveries and some important progress”.
