An Insightful Look into the Life of Clay Siegall

On his recent blog posts, Clay Siegall focussed on a variety of issues across the society. From social policies to climate change and ecosystem. With most of the articles linked to National Public Radio (NPR), all that appears on Clay’s blog posts are nerve striking both emotionally and intellectually.

Most notably is the contemporary issue of the direction taken by the USA President to pull out the climate change pact earlier signed by his predecessor. Another article on the same issue shows how climate change affects coffee farmers in a country in Africa, Uganda. On the other end, a highly emotional article about terminal patients who are given a choice to end their lives by the aid of a doctor shows how this aid to die requires more than just a law. Then there is an article about Alan Alda; an actor, New York Times best-selling author and longtime host at PBS. He has spent hours trying to harmonize the gap within different sectors of science and academics. In his new book, he tries to simply how people understand science.
