Jim Hansen’s radical exhortation

is here. Terrifying, huh? Lucky such unrealistic civilization-threatening foolishness will never gain any traction, huh? ( :-/ )

Thanks to the ever-perspicacious Atmoz for catching this one.

Hansen Expects Meters of Sea Level Rise Soon

James Hansen begins a popular article released today thus:

“I find it almost inconceivable that “business as usual” climate change will not result in a rise in sea level measured in metres within a century. Am I the only scientist who thinks so?”

Good question. Is he?

Thanks to Atmoz for noticing this.

Update: Some discussion on this on the GlobalChange list.

Hansen v Griffin; NASA mission

Thanks to Jim Torson, who on the globalchange list points to this interesting report on Hansen’s response to NASA administrator Griffin’s astonishing comments of last week.

This also ties into a “where’s the damned press” meme. Note especially the last three paragraphs from Hansen. Consider whether these results were handled in a manner appropriate to a free society, with respect to not only the responsibilities of the legislative sector but also those of the press.

Tagged “wheres the press”. (Apostrophe left out to help weak search software) Please use this tag on your blogs, or come up with a better name for it.
