EGU Hannes Alfvén Medal 2011 | Syun-Ichi Akasofu

Was mildly surprised to see another EGU medal (after this one) go to someone who is best known to me as a rather rubbish climate sceptic:
The Hannes Alfvén Medal is awarded to Syun-Ichi Akasofu for his outstanding achievements in Solar-Terrestrial Physics, establishing the substorm as a fundamental concept of magnetospheric physics.

But obviously he has a background as a proper scientist, some years back. Thankfully his drivel concerning climate change appears to have basically sunk without trace (despite his ongoing attempts to puff it).
