Ben Santer on What it's Like to be a Climate Scientist


"What does it feel like to be a U.S. climate scientist in the 21st century?  Well it feels a little scary at times," says Ben Santer, climate scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.  Santer discusses the concerning downsides, and incredible upsides to being an American climate scientist.  "Once in a while in your career, having the sense that you and you alone hold a tiny piece of the enormous climate change puzzle that nobody else in the world has - and that feeling is priceless."
