Professor Steve Running, whose work on climate science shared in a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, accepted a buyout offer and retired in July from the University of Montana.

At UM 37 years, he launched the climate change minor there. Although enrollment has gone down at UM in recent years, enrollment in an introductory climate class had gone up 50 percent since the minor started in 2009.

This is a great loss for the University of Montana but I hope that it will give Dr. Running the opportunity to have a much greater platform to inform and educate to the dangers of climate change that he's championed for years.

All the best to Steve. I hope we hear more from you on the world stage. It's the future of the human race that you're trying to save.
