My crystal ball tells me you're probably running Windows.

On Windows, there's no difference between "netcdf4.py" and
"netCDF4.py", so when you ask Python to "import netCDF4", it finds
your program and imports that. To resolve this, just rename your
script to something else, and delete any "netcdf4.pyc" or related
files. Then try running it under the new name, and you should be fine.
