    Dr. James Hansen heads the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New
    York City, which is a division of Goddard Space Flight Center's (Greenbelt,
    MD), Earth Sciences Directorate. He was trained in physics and astronomy in
    the space science program of Dr. James Van Allen at the University of Iowa.
    His early research on the properties of clouds of Venus led to their
    identification as sulfuric acid. Since the late 1970s, he has worked on
    studies and computer simulations of the Earth's climate, for the purpose of
    understanding the human impact on global climate. Dr. Hansen is best known
    for his testimony on climate change to congressional committees in the 1980s
    that helped raise broad awareness of the global warming issue. He was
    elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1995, and received the
    prestigious Heinz Award for environment in 2001. 
    The New York Chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers annually
    recognizes local individuals, organizations, and projects which are distinct
    in their achievement in the field of energy efficiency and new technologies.
    Recent awards have highlighted green building design and practice, waste
    biogas recovery for fuel cell power production, and energy equity via
    low-income program operation.
