MIT Video: Lunch with a Laureate Eric Chivian

"Several of us physicians in this anti-nuclear physicians' movement started thinking of these global environmental issues—global climate change, loss of biological diversity, the ozone depletion—as, in effect, Armageddon in slow motion." Eric Chivian
Eric Chivian believes that scientists could do a better job of explaining complex environmental issues to the public and public policy makers. By focusing on the health and medical components, he hopes his organizations will make the issues more concrete and understandable for everyone.
