This is a short biography of the lives and successes of our leading climate scientists, Lonnie and Ellen Thompson. Growing up in rural West Virginia, these are now self-made people who have won numerous awards and prizes and both of whom have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences. They and their colleagues in ice core research have produced the most convincing evidence that global warming is a serious threat to our civilization. "Science Now" by NOVA on PBS is one of my favorite TV programs.
